July 02, 2019

The Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence will operate extended hours every Tuesday and Thursday, 6 to 9 p.m., for teens from July 9 through August 15.

Funded by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, club members and non-members between 13-18 years old are invited to participate in basketball, dance, volleyball, fitness and weight training, digital arts, swimming, flag football and other activities with supper included. New this summer is a boating program through a partnership with Greater Lawrence Community Boating.

Markus Fischer, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence, said the Summer Nights Initiative is in line with the organization's core program area of promoting healthy living.

"We're pleased to be a partner in providing additional opportunities to keep kids safe, active and having fun this summer," he said.

This is the club's third year participating in the Summer Nights Initiative, which was established by the administration of Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito in 2015.
