They know the value of the Boys and Girls Club in shaping the lives of young people and those who run the Boys and Girls Club in Box Elder County were sad when the Logan branch closed down. <span style=”font-size: medium;”><span style=”font-size: small;”>JeuneElle</span></span> Jeffries, Executive Director of the Box Elder Boys and Girls Club program, was a guest on <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/328/2013_05_24_328_11162_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s Crosstalk program Friday, May 24</a> and said her group would like to organize a Boys and Girls Cub in Logan.
Jeffries said the goal would be to have the club open every day, both during the school year and in the summertime, as is the case in Box Elder County.
“We’ll be here all summer long. We’ll start June 10 and we’ll go through August 14,” Jeffries said of the new Logan club. “We are hoping to continue to go through the school year as well as add some teen programs in the fall. That’s our hope.”
Jeffries said that the temporary home for the Boys and Girls Club of Logan is the Bear River Charter School Building at 75 South 400 West. They would like to be in a more permanent location.
“We’ll be knocking on doors and walking the streets to make sure we have some space. There are kids and youth here that need some support and need a mentor, need an adult after school when school’s out. We’re hoping we can provide that.”
Jeffries said all kids from Kindergarten through high school are invited to sign up. She said there will be art camps, science camps, and other fun activities. For more information call 435-723-6224.
