The Pine Bluff City Council is expected to vote soon on a proposal allowing the Parks and Recreation Department to collaborate with the Boys and Girls Club of Jefferson County.
On Friday, Parks and Recreation Director Sam Glover and Nyeshia Aldridge, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Jefferson County were guests on the Oldies 101.3 morning show and Glover talked about the collaboration.
Aldridge said if the collaboration takes place, the Boys and Girls Club would be able to implement a daily structured after school and summer program. She was then asked what else would they be able to do.
Aldridge said there are currently two Boys and Girls Club sites, one in Townsend Park and the other at First United Methodist Church. The addition of the Community Center as a third site would allow the club to provide more services to kids.
Glover said the community center is a bigger facility and would allow for more activities.
He then went on to say this.
