The sounds of children echoed against the walls of the Algoma Youth Club for the first time in a year last month.
Algoma Elementary's fifth and sixth-grade students were among the first kids to have fun in space and try the food cooked in the club’s new commercial air fryer. The time closed also allowed for parts of the Algoma Youth Club to get a fresh coat of paint and other minor changes. A popular destination on the weekend for members of the community, the Algoma Youth Club will still remain closed on the weekends to support the schools’ efforts to keep students in their pods. Algoma Parks and Recreation Department Director Sara Robertson says they are also reopening to smaller groups to rent until they are ready to fully reopen.
Robertson says meetings for the weight loss club and Alcoholics Anonymous and events like the men’s pool league are also slowly returning to the space.
