Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles Co. (New Club)

Construction of the new Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles County will begin within the next few weeks.  The official groundbreaking will be held on December 22, 2011.  This is such a long awaited project and the excitement leaving a building for a new site is wonderful.  Currently we are housed in a 50 year old facility that has more leaks in the roof than you can count.  The furnaces are hardly doing their job any more and air conditioning is non existant.  We are still raising funds for the project as it is not totally funded but the necessity of a new building has become so imperative that we must move on.  We will be serving so many more children that currently due to the availability of more space and more programs being offered.  For many children the Boys and Girls Club is not a luxury but a necessity.  It is their home away from home.

Not only has the steel been delivered but the site is being prepared for construction.  Many loads of dirt were removed, trees and brush that was in the way has been picked up by nurserys and ground up for mulch.  The site no longer has this big mound of dirt which was removed in order for the new gym and pool area to be exposed to the natural sunlight.

Utilities for the building are being installed as well as marking the footings and foundation locations. The anticipated occupancy date for the new Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles County is November 15, 2012.

Boys and Girls Club of St. Charles Co. (New Club)

Just last week, the steel for the new facility was delivered to the site.  With that happening, we know that the dreams of the boys and girls of the community will soon become a reality.  The site is being made ready for construction to begin.  It is necessary to relocate two utility poles before we can proceed.  But as soon as that happens, which will be in the immediate future, we will hear the sound of the earth moving equipment.  That will be music to everyone's ears. 

Groundbreaking is planned to happen in very early July.  And after that we will see a lot of progress in constructing the new club.  We are still raising funds as we have not met our final goal, but it is necessary to move forward with the construction and continue to raise money. 

With all the rains, our current club continues to leak and manages to keep many rooms unusable.  This is exciting for us to see this become a reality but there is still much work to do and funds to be raised.  All help is needed and greatly appreciated.
