The Boys and Girls Club in Bend will not have to close down while repairs go on for its water damage. Rain and hail got into the club when contractors didn't cover the roof during recent repairs. The United Methodist Church behind the Club on Bond Street has volunteered to take them in for at least the next month.
“It could take more or less, but United Methodist says they will house us for as long as we need. Construction hasn't been working around children and that means it gets done much more quickly.” Club Director Lisa Burbidge says blowers are running on the Club's walls and gym floor trying to dry them out. It still isn't known if the gym floor needs to be replaced.
