Bolingbroke Community Not long ago, a storm came Club (a non-profit organization) for as long as I can remember - well over 20 years. For those of you not familiar, we held our meetings there for many years but eventu- ally outgrew the space and had to move the meetings to Mr. Zion Baptist Church fellowship hall. We use the building during the Christmas Parade each year, VICKI SMITH transforming it into "Santa's Workshop" Xhe children line up with with great anticipation and excitement to go inside and visit with Santa. The building has so much history and is one of the few remaining historical buildings here in Boring- broke. Our little town would not be the same without it. Judy Kornegay told me that when they moved to Bolingbroke in 1973, she and her husband, Garry, went to this build- ing to vote - it was this area's voting precinct. I am also told that this building used to be the city hall/courthouse through and knocked the power box offthe back of the building. It was then discovered that the sup- port beams on two sides are rotten. The county owns the building while the Bolingbroke Com- munity Club leases it. The county maintenance crew wanted to have it torn down.

Club member Jimmy Mickle has been rebuilding the seal plates/ beams. And in the meantime, John Ambrose agreed to go before the other commissioners and renew our lease. He agreed to give the Club money from his discretionary fund so that the Bolingbroke Com- munity Club can begin making other necessary repairs to the aging building. In addition to the money Mr. Ambrose will donate, we will need more to complete the on-going project.
