Huntington Beach will soon have the first Boys & Girls Club in the state on a college campus.
The Huntington Valley Boys & Girls Club held a Construction Celebration on June 10 on a child-development preschool at Golden West College. The Boys & Girls Club already held its ground breaking ceremony on the project in April, but it took longer than expected to actually dig into the ground, said Tanya Hoxsie, the chief executive of the Huntington Valley Boys & Girls Club.
The new facility will replace the existing child development center on a 3-acre portion of Golden West College at 15744 Goldenwest St. The facility is the first of three phases of the organization's $7-million Building Dreams campaign, which will eventually bring a gymnasium and two-story Boys & Girls Club to the campus.
