A dedication ceremony will take place Wednesday, June 3 for the recently opened a Boys & Girls Club in Brewster, WA. The event will be at 3:00pm at 601 West Cliff Avenue in Brewster. The Club opened its doors on March 23 and has had an influx of members. Average daily attendance has been 70 members per day, with 128 registered Club members.
“Opening the Club in Brewster is such a positive addition to this community,” remarked April Ashworth, Brewster Club Unit Director. “We are so fortunate to have the backing and sponsors to bring this Club to our town. This is a great opportunity for our kids!”
The hallmark of Boys & Girls Clubs is to help young people ages 5-18 to achieve academic success, live healthy and active lifestyles, and develop good character and leadership skills. The Clubs offer kids a safe and positive place to spend their time before and after school and during the summer. The Brewster Club provides after-school enrichment programs from 2:50pm to 6:00pm Monday through Friday, and 11:00am to 6:00pm on non-school days and is closed weekends.
Jon Wyss, Government Affairs for Gebbers Farms, commented “After four years of hard work to bring a Boys & Girls Club to Brewster, and in the wake of the devastating Carlton Complex Fire, the opening of the Club gives a ray of sunshine and hope for recovery. The Club will provide kids throughout the area with a safe place to grow, play, and learn.”
The Club facilities include a gymnasium, multi-purpose room, and game center. Boys & Girls Club programs such as Power Hour, Triple Play, Torch Club, High Yield Learning Activities, and healthy snacks are available in the afternoons to all members. A variety of day camps will be offered this summer.
Having the Boys & Girls Club of Snohomish County in our community is a tremendous asset that’s been a long time coming,” expressed City of Brewster Public Works Director, Lee Webster. “I am very excited for our youth. Having them active in a positive, healthy, nurturing environment is the whole reason that building was built.”
Join the Brewster community and the kids who will benefit from this Club to mark this momentous occasion.
