After nearly 50 years of use, The Village Network demolished its original Boys’ Village gym and will soon break ground for its replacement, the Bob Maruna Field House. To commemorate the construction, The Village Network will host a groundbreaking ceremony and reflect on the gym’s rich history and recognize key donors involved in both the original construction and the reconstruction of the gym. During the ceremony, a youth will share his testimony about what the new gym means to him. The event will be outdoors under a tent and will take place rain or shine. Boxed lunches for attendees will also be provided.
