“It’s better to build kids then try and mend adults” – Ron Brady (Philanthropist, La Mesa, business owner and advocate for children everywhere)
A LOT has been going at the construction site of the Brady Family Clubhouse and Gagon Academy since our July 12, 2017 groundbreaking ceremony! The once dirt lot, has transformed into a standing structure!
Check out the Boys & Girls Clubs of East County’s Facebook page to get the latest pictures and live feeds from the construction site! These days you rarely see a building being built from the ground up, it has been an exciting and fun experience! Situated between Helix High School and La Mesa Arts Academy with La Mesa Dale Elementary down the street, the new Clubhouse will offer a safe and fun environment for the neighborhood and commuter children to go after school. We are SO ready for the sounds of a basketball being dribbled on the court, children’s laughter and friendships being made!
We anticipate construction to be completed by the end of the summer. The Clubs aspire to continue to fulfill our mission “to enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens”.
Many thanks to all of the donors (especially Ron and Mary Alice Brady!), community organizations and supporters of the Brady Family Clubhouse project; we promise, the new Clubhouse will be well worth the wait!
