Safe Links for Kids
Here are a few safe websites we encourage our members to visit:
In October 1979, the South Haven Unit opened its doors to boys ages 6-14. The first location was at the clubhouse at the South Haven Little League field.
In the summer of 1981, a grant was received from the John Will Anderson foundation to construct a 16,000 square foot clubhouse at 723 Long Run Road.
In June 1982, the South Haven Boys Club's doors were open to the youth of South Haven. The club was open to girls on Mondays, to boys on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and to girls and boys on Fridays.
In December 1994, the Board of Directors approved a 62x41 addition to the east end of the South Haven Unit gamesroom to serve as a multipurpose room, and the remodeling of an unused locker room to house a teen center.
In January of 2002, each Club in Porter County received 10 computers for their computer labs. The state of the art computers were donated by Power Up, a national partnership of computer hardware and software companies attempting to help bridge the digital divide.
