The clubs in Redmond and Terrebonne closed for the month of September to raise money to keep their doors open for the whole year.

 

They needed to raise 170-thosuand dollars and they did.

 

Executive Diretor Jenny O'Keefe says kids and parents alike are happy the club is open again.

 

"The gratitude was profound.  The sense of releif from parents was profound.  The excitement on kids faces was really joyful.  There was no negative responses whatsoever.  Everyone knew we could do it, they had confidence in it, but I don't think they expected it to happen so quickly."

 

Redmond community businesses and indiviudals donated 170-thousand dollars to help keep the clubs doors open.

 

About 150 kids have registered so far to return to the clubs, about half the number before they closed last month.
