All Boys Club employees received mandatory Drug and Alcohol training this past week at the Club.  The sessions were provided by Safe-T-Works and were provided for DOT employees, Supervisors and Managers, and non-DOT employees.  According to the Club’s policy, all employees will be required to receive at least 60 minutes of training per year on the consequences of prohibited drug/alcohol use.



We express our sincere sympathy to the friends and families of Jean C. Sill who passed away on June 6 and Jeffrey Paul Saunooke who passed away on June 7.


Jean C. Sill is the mother of Dave Stamper of the Club’s Bus/Truck and Shop Department.  A memorial service was held for her on Wednesday, June 11 in Virginia Beach, Va. A funeral service will be held Saturday, June 14 in Bedford, Pennsylvania.  In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that a donation be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.


Jeffery Paul Saunooke is the brother of Jody Saunooke of the Club’s Bus/Truck Department and Construction and Facilities Department and the son-in-law of Boys Club Board Member Perry Shell.


Please keep all of these families in your thoughts and prayers during this challenging time of their lives.



We want to welcome our OJT (On-the-Job Training) workers who began work on Monday, June 9.  Out of approximately 40 applicants, 17 were chosen to participate in this year’s program.  These students were placed in the Club’s Administration Department, Graphics Department, Construction and Facilities Department, Child Care, Shop Department and Children’s Home.  In addition to the application process, these students had to obtain a letter of reference from a teacher, principal, counselor, etc. to go with their application.  We hope all of these students will learn about the responsibilities associated with having a job and developing skills that will help them in the future!



Thanks to the Club’s Construction and Facilities Department for the work they did last week remodeling the Conference Room at the Boys Club.  The room received new flooring, lighting, paint and window treatments.
