Reedsburg Club’s History

The Boys & Girls Clubs of West-Central Wisconsin met with residents at the Fusch Community Center on June 30, 2016 to discuss the idea of establishing a Boys & Girls Club in Reedsburg. The idea for a club came from the latest Community Health Needs Assessments conducted by the Reedsburg Area Medical Center, Sauk County Health Department and State of Wisconsin. The study found that childhood obesity is a major problem in Reedsburg and that a club would address the issue.

Just a year after that meeting, the group secured a former hardware store building for the new location on Vine Street in Reedsburg. DeSanto said more than $400,000 was raised in just more than a year to fund programming expenses, along with renovations to the site. “Within three months, we had $150,000, which allowed us to secure the place and start the renovations,” she said. “Since then, it’s been an outpouring of support from the community.

The new Club site opened September 5 and membership levels were more than double than anticipated.

Still Changing Lives

Each day after school and during the summer, Boys & Girls Club members have the opportunity to learn, grow and give back to the community through programs that focus on academic success, healthy habits and lifestyles and good character and citizenship.
