August 23rd, 2019- The Boys and Girls Club of Decatur Inc. will be making some new changes to their hours of operations and membership fees this Fall. Due to low attendance rates, the club will be discontinuing Saturday hours of operation in exchange for new operating hours on Mondays. In addition, membership dues will increase to $1 a week from the traditional $1 a year. Director of Development Resources Shamika Bond says the changes will help the program maintain free services such as free tutoring and field trips for members. Bond stated, “It is with our members best interest that these changes are being made. We want to ensure that no child is left behind, and if anyone is struggling with the additional charges, payment plans are always an option. We are more than willing to help our members make it work.” The Boys and Girls Club will also be holding a Q&A night September 6th at 5:00pm to answer any of the community’s questions or concerns about the new changes.
