Boys & Girls Club receives Foundation grant

Sue Hartwick, program administrator for the Fort Atkinson Community Foundation, recently visited the Boys & Girls Club’s Barrie School site to give Club Director Alicia Norris the Foundation’s second installment of their three-year, $60,000 grant that made it possible for the club to expand into Barrie School.  With the establishment of the Barrie School site in 2015, the Boys & Girls Club of Fort Atkinson is now able to serve 300 children at all four public elementary schools. A completed membership application is necessary to be considered for club membership. Application forms are available at the respective schools and can be submitted throughout the year.
