Thank you for your story about the Boys and Girls Club of Juneau that is scheduled to open July 8. Just in case your readers are confused, I'd like to clarify that while the club will be funded for its first two years by grant money obtained by Tlingit-Haida Regional Housing Authority, the club will be open to all of Juneau's children age 8 to 18, regardless of race, family income, etc.
I'd also like to clarify for your readers that the Boys and Girls Club of Juneau is an extension of the Anchorage-based Boys and Girls Club of South Central Alaska. Issues such as daily operation, nonprofit status, membership fees and appointment of the club's local advisory board are determined by the Anchorage club.
Again, thank you for your interest in the Juneau Boys and Girls Club.
