Community Celebrates Reopening of Sherman Park Boys & Girls Club
MILWAUKEE - A new look for the Sherman Park Boys and Girls Club.
The Mary Ryan Boys and Girls Club has been closed since August. It will soon reopen with brand new amenities including a new computer lab, caming tables, and career development space, along with the basics like new flooring and paint.
After the unrest in the neighborhood last August, there are also plans for a new teen center.
"All of us were aware of what happened last summer, part of that is our teens in the community felt very frustrated, so we at the Boys and Girls Club said, what are we going to do about that? As you see this beautiful space, our teens are certainly welcome to come in. We're going to do something more special for them later this year, we've got a teen center planned and spaced out and we're really excited about that," said Vincent Lyles with the Boys & Girls Club of Milwaukee.
New members are welcome to check out the new digs on April 15th as well as welcome back those who have been using other clubs during the renovations.
