Boys & Girls Club Alumni
Where Are They Now?
So many Boys & Girls Club Members are now a vital part of our community. Join us in celebrating where they are now!
Bart was a member of the Lancaster Club from 1980-1990. After he graduated from Lancaster High School he still managed to frequently visit the staff and volunteer his services. He also was employed by the Lancaster Club from 1995-1998.
During his years at the club, his favorite activities to be involved in focused around the gym activities. He enjoyed all the sports including football, basketball, and floor hockey. He remembers the wood shop in the basement of the club where he would make baseball bats and other wood working items. His fondest memories include hanging out at the club on Friday nights and looking forward to coming back at 1pm on Saturday to do the same.
When asked what the club has meant to him, Bart responded “It is a common theme amongst us who have grown up at the Club, I would not be there person I am today if it were not for the Club, both personally and professionally. My time at the Club has made me a better Husband, Father, and Friend. can honestly say I would not be the person I am today if I had not grown up at the Club.”
If he could sit with club members now and give them advice about being a club member, he would say, “Never, never forget.... Never forget the memories and the experiences you had while growing up at the Club. You are making friends now that you will have for the rest of your life. Be sure to pass that experience on to our children as I am to mine. There is nothing better than knowing you have some place safe to go to, simply hang out or play sports. I am 41 years old and my friends and brothers still to this day talk about those Friday and Saturday's at the Club.
Bart is currently an Operations Manager at Patterson Dental. He lives in Cheektowaga with his wife Melissa, two sons Mason and Jameson. Bart and Melissa are expecting their third child in August of 2014.
