Upgrades Completed For Boys & Girls Club

The west entrance of Vernon's Okanagan Boys and Girls Club has received a face lift and some access control improvements.
 
The 43-thousand dollar project was funded by the regional district, the province and a 15-thousand dollar donation from the Vernon Rotary Club,
 
Along with an expanded front office area, the upgrades include a redesign of the west entrance to provide the Boys and Girls Club staff the ability to control who comes into the building.
 
“Access control allows us to better manage and safeguard the kids in our programs,” says Kirstie Blanleil, Okanagan Boys and Girls Club Area Director. “We are grateful that the Province of British Columbia was able to help supplement the funding from the Regional District to make this project happen.”
 
Vernon Monashee MLA, Eric Foster, is delighted with the outcome. “The Okanagan Boys and Girls Club provides such a tremendous service to our community,” says Foster. “I am happy to hear that these improvements will make such a significant difference to the Club’s day to day operations.”
 
“The Okanagan Boys and Girls Club provides a number of important community services, including after school care and low-cost recreation programs,” said Juliette Cunningham, Chair of the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee to the Regional District. “These services meet a real need in the community, and the Regional District recognizes the importance of ensuring that they remain strong and effective.”
