Boys & Girls Club Plans Location in Whitpain

Thu, Oct 8th, 2015

At last night's West Ambler Revitalization townhall meeting, plans were introduced to build the new Wissahickon Valley Boys & Girls Club in the heart of West Ambler Village. The proposed clubhouse is to be located at 350 Railroad Avenue. It will be built entirely with private funds and charitable donations.

"We have been searching for just the right site for several years now, so we can significantly expand the current programs," said Whitpain Township Chairman Fred Conner. "With the teamwork of all of the partner organizations and the generosity of our donors, this project will help thousands of kids every year to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens."

Township officials also updated residents on progress to date on the West Ambler Revitalization Plan which includes continuing to make safe walking and traffic connections to and from the new clubhouse. Please click here to learn more about the project.
