With a flourish, the tarp flew off the new sign on the Boys & Girls Club building at 55 South Third Ave., and the David G. Hatch Center officially was launched on June 9. Recognizing a very significant donation, the Hatch Center is poised to add more capability for community outreach. The building is the hub of Boys & Girls Club activities for academic success, healthy lifestyles, and building character and citizenship for children from kindergarten through high school.
Hatch, former owner of Hatco Corporation, made brief remarks prior to the sign reveal. “I am very lucky being involved in an incredible company. I saw the Boys & Girls Club and said, ‘You need help, let me help you. The future is what it’s all about.’”
“The generosity of David Hatch has gone above and beyond in making a lifechanging gift for our kids,” said Julie Davis, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Door County. “David immediately made the connection that when we invest in our youth, we invest in the future of our business and families. His donation is creating a legacy for boys and girls that will be unlike anything this community has seen before.”
