The 1943 structure located at 5109-51 Street in Wetaskiwin  may have looked a little old and tired on the outside but, “with a recent windows upgrade it is an amazing improvement both inside and outside,”  stated Debbie Pearson, Fund and Communications Coordinator, Boys and Girls Club.

Each day since 1988 youth and their families have entered the former County of Wetaskiwin building to access the programs and services of the Boys and Girls Club. But, a building built in 1943 constantly needs repairs and improvements to remain safe and functional.

The Boys and Girls Club is very thankful for the on-going support they receive to make these upgrades possible. This particular project, the replacement of 40 windows, became a reality with an in-kind donation from All Weather Windows, a Community Facility Enhancement Program Grant and cash donations in part from Nexen Energy, Wetaskiwin Lions Club and E and T Installation helped with the project.

Pearson explains, “The new windows and other upgrades help to ensure the life of our building and that our agency maintains a strong presence in our community not to mention the importance of the savings on heating bills once the more energy efficient windows are installed.”  Other upgrades in recent years include new fluorescent lights, installation of new low-flow toilets and taps, replacing flooring, installing a new fire alarm system and improvements to the playground area.

“All Weather Windows installers Ernie and his crew from E & T Installation from Millet have done amazing job with installing the windows but also ensuring that everything is done right and will be air-tight in the future.  Projects like the window replacement help ensure that the Boys and Girls Club will have a save and functional home in our community for many years and can continue to offer  the variety of programs we do for children, youth and families”

The former County building has been a great home for the Boys and Girls Club of Wetaskiwin since 1988 and enhances services in the community by offering low-cost, much-needed programs and services for children, youth and families.
