Dug out of a turn-of-the-century factory and warehouse, the Algoma Youth Club continues to have a positive impact on the community it serves. Since the 1950s, the Algoma Youth Club has been one of the oldest organizations of its kind in the country, providing children a safe place to hang out on the weekends and the young at heart to shoot pool or play cards during the week. Algoma Parks and Recreation Director Sara Robertson says the Algoma Youth Club has stood the test of time.
Parents can pay a small fee for an annual membership or purchase a pass for the evening to help pay for the services and the equipment used at the Lake Street facility. You can visit this story online for information on upcoming events at the Algoma Youth Club.
