The Boys and Girls Club here in Thompson will be closed next week.
Executive director Regina DaSilva-Gibbons joined Jason Sonser on 102.9 CHTM late last week to explain that participation in programs during the first week of school is, for the most part, quite low.
She added that they will be using the time to have three full staff training days, which will help maintain standards for the club. DaSilva-Gibbons added that the training is also needed as there is a lot of turnover.
The club will resume all regularly scheduled programming starting on September 11th.
