Thank you, Ken.

How can we begin to tell someone how deeply we appreciate all that they have done for the kids of this community? To adequately convey how grateful we are for the hours, days, weeks, and years of effort to launch the Club and build our Clubhouse? The expertise you brought in helping us charter our organization and serving as our chief financial officer?

Thank you, Ken MacDonnell, from your fellow board members and on behalf of the thousands of kids whose lives you have impacted.

Enjoy your next chapter.

Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our Club kids.

When the weather is bad enough to close school, the BGCM Clubhouse will also be closed.

If inclement weather causes school to be cancelled, dismissed early or after school activities cancelled, the BGCM Clubhouse will be CLOSED.

We did it!


Monday, September 18, 2017.

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.
