By | Arch Painting, Community, GC Painting Services, Interior Painting | One Comment

The home of the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn has a long and rich history. The original facility, including Lucky’s Pool, was constructed in 1963, with the club officially opening its doors in June of the following year. In 1970, enough funds were raised to build an addition that included a gym, weight room, and locker room. Other modifications and upgrades were made over the years as Club membership continued to grow, including the admittance of girls as equal members in 1991.
