Local Lowe’s manager, Collin, spoke of how the project’s transformational work at the Club had moved him and his team in many ways. Collin was instrumental in bringing together contractors and suppliers for the renovation –which far exceeded the grant amount – to ensure the facility provided local kids and teens with the best possible experience.
A highlight was the making over of “The CLUB” Teen Center, with teen members giving input to its design. With BGCA designating 2017 as “Year of the Teen Voice,” the redone Teen Center should definitely help to introduce teens to the benefits of Club membership.
The day’s agenda also included a presentation to the Rotary Club of Oklahoma City. Those in attendance included BGCA national Area Council member Rick Nagel, as well as local board members and civic leaders. It was indeed a special day for the community and the youth and families that attend the Club. Congratulations to CEO Jane Sutter, Club staff and board volunteers, and Lowe’s for coming together to make this remarkable day happen!
