An Open House and Family Night will be held on Wednesday, October 9 from 6-7:30 p.m. to celebrate the final phase of the remodeling of the Woodland Park Child Development Center. The Woodland Park Campus has been renovated and upgraded thanks to a generous capital grant from the State of Alaska, and with the support of Senator Hollis French and the Anchorage Legislative Delegation. Senator French will be in attendance at the event. Boys & Girls Club families and media are invited to tour the renovated classrooms and meet the teachers. A spaghetti dinner will be provided.
The Boys & Girls Club Child Development Center would also like to announce its participation in the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program administered by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development. Meals are provided daily to enrolled children at no separate charge without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
“We look forward to celebrating the culmination of this enormous project with our friends and families, as well as take this opportunity to say thank you to our supporters,” said Alana Humphrey, the organization’s Chief Executive Officer.
