The Boys & Girls Club plans to build a new facility 67 percent larger than the current facility, a gymnasium that was originally the National Guard Armory.
It is an ambitious plan. The club’s supporters plan to break ground this coming year and have it ready to open in 2015. The new building will be able to accommodate 225 youths. Currently 140 a day are being served in Placerville.
The capital campaign has raised $1 million, 40 percent of the way to the goal of $2.5 million.
The new facility on the corner of Green Valley Road and Mallard Lane will have a full-sized gym, a full-sized kitchen, music room, art room, game room, teen room, studying center and a computer lab with 20 stations.
To help the club realize its goal call Executive Director Sean McCartney at 530-295-8019 for information.
