Culver Boys and Girls Club Progressing With Programs for Children

The Marshall County Commissioners received an update on the Culver Boys and Girls Club last week.

Alan Loehr told the commissioners that 350 members are involved and more than 142 children at one time have been taking part in the after school and summer program.

Classes are normally held at the Culver Elementary School but due to construction this summer, classes are being conducted at the Culver Middle School. Two days a week, the students engage in activities at the Culver Beach Lodge. The programs are taught by highly-skilled and trained staff.

The Culver Boys and Girls Club is open from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. ET in the summer and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday during the regular school year. The Club has an operating budget of $210,000. The town of Culver, private contributors, the United Way organization and the county contributes to that operating budget. Grants and memberships, plus over $125,000 in fundraising efforts per year, make up a lot of that cost as well.

Loehr commented that the students love the program and it’s going very well. He thanked the commissioners for their continued support of the Culver Boys and Girls Club.
