Plain Press, December 2015 The West Side Boys and Girls Club plans to have two new locations open at area schools when students return to school from their break on January 5th.
One new location will be in the basement of Lincoln West High School on W. 30th just South of Clark. The other new location will be at Luis Muñoz Marin School at Castle and Scranton.
Work is already under way to get the new spaces ready. On Saturday, November 14th, West Side Boys and Girls Club Area Director Sandra DelValle worked with volunteers to clean out Room 130 in the Lincoln West basement where the new club will be headquartered. Volunteers helping to remove stacks of books stored in the room included eleven students from the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity at Baldwin Wallace University.
DelValle says as Area Director she will supervise three West Side Boys and Girls Clubs – the club at Walton Schools and the two new facilities at Lincoln West and Luis Muñoz Marin. The long time West Side Boys and Girls Club facility on Trowbridge will be closed and put up for sale, said DelValle.
DelValle said the Lincoln West Club will target youths ages 13 -18. The club will have its own entrance from the underground parking area on the South side of the building. The Luis Munoz Marin site will target children ages 6 through 12.
