DID YOU KNOW?!
Today, the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest is one of the largest Boys & Girls Club organizations in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, serving over 6,200 members at our three Clubhouses in Framingham, Hudson and Marlborough.
Marlborough Boys Club Inc. opened in a rental hall in the old Hunter Block on Main Street.
The Club was chartered as a member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and moved to a new location on Mechanic Street.
The Club had collected $15,000 from various fundraisers and used the money as a down payment for a new building on Rawlins Avenue (known as the Pastime Theater Building).
The Club was transformed into a year-round operation, adding programs, staff and a full-time Director.
The Club’s Board of Directors voted to sell the Pastime Theater Building and purchase the vacant Mitchell School on Pleasant Street (where our Marlborough Clubhouse is still housed today).
Marlborough Boys Clubs Inc. became the Marlborough Boys & Girls Clubs Inc.
Marlborough Boys & Girls Clubs Inc. and Girls Inc. merged.
The Hollis Street Clubhouse in Framingham opened, focused on serving middle school students, and the organization became the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Marlborough.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Marlborough, Inc., Boys & Girls Clubs of Hudson, and the Hudson Youth Center merged to become the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest.
The Hudson Clubhouse underwent a two million dollar expansion.
The Hollis Street Clubhouse relocates to 154 Pearl Street in Framingham, known as the Pearl Street Clubhouse.
The Pearl Street Clubhouse relocates to 25 Clinton Street in Framingham, known as the Framingham Clubhouse.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest became the primary before and after school care provider for the Marlborough Public Schools.
