DIDSBURY - BGC Olds & Area is currently working with the Town of Didsbury on the possibility of opening a youth and community outreach centre in the municipality, says club youth and community outreach director Lauren MacMullen.
The club and town have already been working together to host various youth events at local facilities such as the Five-O Club, she noted.
Although a timeline for opening the new centre has not been determined, work and planning is ongoing, she said.
BGC is the new name for the Boys and Girls Club – which started as the Boys Club of Canada in 1947 before becoming the Boys and Girls Club of Canada in 1974.
The club provides many opportunities for young people to get together for indoor and outdoor activities. For example, BGC members were recently involved in Orange Shirt Day activities across the province.
MacMullen says the club plans to post regular social media updates on the youth and community outreach centre project in Didsbury.
