(E-Biulder Nov 2005) The Kiwanis Club of Denbigh organized a community effort to build a picnic shelter for the Boys & Girls Club of the Virginia Peninsula. The shelter measures 30 feet by 40 feet, with a concrete floor and asphalt shingle roof. The Kiwanis Club, with help from the Denbigh Lions Club, 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union, and professionals from a local building contractor, and a concrete finishing company, provided the manpower for the construction. Substantial donations of materials by several building supply companies helped to keep the cost down. The shelter was completed by the end of October 2005. The Boys & Girls Club provides a safe place for children after school and in the summer time, who have no other safe place to go. It provides the opportunity for these children to develop ongoing relationships with caring adults and builds character and hope for the future.
