The Boys & girls Club of the Rogue Valley announced on Wednesday, Dec. 1 that its board of directors made the very difficult decision to close the Shady Cove Club. The last day for club operations will be Dec. 16. It will continue to operate on Mondays and Wednesdays after school until 6:30 p.m. and from 3-9 p.m. Friday Teen Nights until its last day. Small attendance and lack of community financial support as originally pledged are given as the primary reasons. Please read the full story in the Dec. 6 Upper Rogue Independent.
