A New LOOK

FROM NEW game tables to fresh paint and
supplies in the arts and crafts room, members of
the Boys & Girls Club in Magnolia are enjoying
being the recipients of recent renovations
sponsored by the community.
Improvements began last August when the
Leadership Magnolia Team selected the club as
their project, says Deneisa Jamerson, executive
director of the club.
Boys & Girls Club employees, along with their
members, parents and the community are so
grateful to the Leadership Magnolia Team and
their hardwork renovating the game room.
" We were able to renovate our game room
area and main entry, remove the carpet and put
down a faux laminate hardwood floor (thanks
to the Leadership Magnolia Team), " she says. A
new pool table, foosball tables and other gaming
equipment, such as board games, were also
provided by the Magnolia Junior Charity League.
" We received new signage for the front of our
building, and shortly after that we got siding on
the upper portion of the gym and a new roof on
the old gym, " Jamerson says.
" Our arts and crafts room was renovated by the
AmeriCore VISTA Program at Southern Arkansas
University. We received all new arts and crafts
supplies; they painted the entire room and
organized it, " she says, adding that the program
has pledged to keep the supplies stocked.
A donation from the Magnolia Junior Charity
League, which allowed the staff to have the
concession stand and baseball office gutted and
remodeled, is a project Chris Ludwig, director of
sports and facilities, is excited about, Jamerson
says.
" We have all new stainless-steel furniture and
appliances, new tables and cabinetry, a new
hotdog machine and a three-compartment sink. A
few things that we would like help with would be
getting our gym redone, our bathrooms and other
classrooms and kitchen remodeled, " she says.

Local Boys & Girls Club gets update
thanks to community organizations

"

I can say on behalf of all of us
that we are truly grateful for
our community support and
the outpouring we continue to
get as we update our facilities
so that the youth of this
community are given the best.

But what do the more than 5,000 youth the club
serves have to say about these updates?
" They are just loving the renovations, " Jamerson
says. " It is their club, not ours, so we are teaching
them to appreciate what they have and what
people are giving them. "
Jamerson says that she and the staff are
appreciative of the time, effort and money these
organizations have donated to make the club
better for members and the community.
" I can say on behalf of all of us that we are
truly grateful for our community support and the
outpouring we continue to get as we update our
facilities so that the youth of this community are
given the best, " Jamerson concludes. 
