Editorial: The Boys and Girls Club of Dane County has grown in size, impact
MADISON, Wis. — There’s no question that under Michael Johnson’s leadership the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County has grown in size and impact.
As impressive is the community support Johnson has earned, and there is no clearer example than this week’s grand opening of the McKenzie Family Boys and Girls Club in Sun Prairie.
First of all it’s the largest club in the history of the organization. Second expanding the Boys and Girls Club reach into Sun Prairie is important and welcome. And then there is the one Million dollar gift from John and Jo Ellen McKenzie, at once a commitment to the community and a measure of the trust the McKenzie’s have in Johnson and his work.
The new club will offer both early childhood and school age programming for 190 young people. And our community is stronger thanks to the McKenzie’s and Boys and Girls Club.
