What a great day. The sun was shining, the temperatures were more summer-like than fall and we swung the doors open to our 30 Bayley Road Clubhouse to kids ages 5 to 18 for the very first time.
Thanks to our steering committee members who got things rolling. Thanks to the charter board members who worked tirelessly and wore so many hats — from events, to publicity, to governance, to finance, to staffing and beyond. Thanks to the volunteers who helped us clean, paint and prep our new Club.
Thanks to so many, for giving so much, to support this incredibly important effort. Together, we made the Boys & Girls Club of Massena a reality. Together, we have made it possible for thousands of kids for decades to come to achieve GREAT FUTURES.
Here, BGCM Board Members, staff, volunteers and community supporters gather for the official ribbon cutting to mark this tremendous achievement for the kids of the community.
Hey, kids and parents… It’s finally here!
The Boys & Girls Club of Massena has started this school year off in our very own, newly renovated clubhouse at 30 Bayley Road. We hope you’ll be part of the fun!

Wow! What a great day!On behalf of our EXTRAVAGANZA committee, we want to offer our deepest thanks to everyone who helped make the inaugural event so successful.
Saturday, May 6, was a day when thousands of amazing people came together to support the Boys & Girls Club of Massena. Vendors, partners, entertainers, advertisers, volunteers, and attendees shared their time and their treasure to help us open the doors to GREAT FUTURES.
We really can’t say thank you enough. Every dollar made at the EXTRAVAGANZA stays right here, to provide the programs and place that is making a difference in the lives of our kids — already nearly 500 members strong!
We’ve started planning for next year and we so hope to see you again on the first Saturday in May!
Thank you for your continued support!
Tim Lashomb & Anne-Marie Lucid, EXTRAVAGANZA Co-Chairs

Not only did the great folks at North Country Savings Bank make a significant contribution to the Club, they featured the Boys & Girls Club of Massena in one of their new commercials. We love it — and you. Thank you for supporting our kids!

The Boys and Girls Club of Massena reached another milestone Tuesday afternoon.
With signs of construction taking place around them at the clubhouse at 30 Bayley Road, the former St. Joseph’s social hall, Boys and Girls club officials accepted the keys to the building after closing on its purchase.
Timmy J. Currier, president of the Boys and Girls Club of Massena Board of Directors, accepted the keys from the Rev. Mark Reilly, pastor for the Greater Massena Catholic Community, as a number of club members and officials looked on.
