Now that the weather has begun to warm up, it’s time to talk about golf! The 13th annual Children’s Home of Jefferson County (CHJC) Golf Tournament will be held Monday, August 13, 2018 at Ives Hill Country Club, Watertown.
Funds raised will target a new, expanded space for our Boys & Girls Club SoZo Teen Center. We have long been aware of the critical need for a larger, more suitable location. Our current Center is small and lacks any outdoor green space, limiting the number of youth able to participate on any given day, and the number and variety of activities offered. A new location with an easily accessible outdoor recreation area and increased interior space, will provide the enriching environment youth need to become healthy, happy and productive adult members of our community. Plans also include the expansion of the Center’s Culinary Program. An Ansul exhaust system and commercial range will be installed expanding options for both feeding the youth daily, nutritious snacks and dinners, as well as teaching them how to independently and safely prepare nutritious, budget-friendly meals. A larger space will also offer us the opportunity to expand this critical program for younger children. By focusing our search for a new location on Watertown’s north side, we can offer youth residing in the area, the critical services they currently lack access to.
