WESLACO - A groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new Boys & Girls Club of Weslaco.
Weslaco City officials gathered at the site of the new 12,000-plus-sf facility to be located at Mayor Pablo G. Peña City Park.
Assistance to the club and the city was a $400,000 Texas Parks and Wildlife Grant to go toward the construction of the new club.
In total, officials say the project was budgeted for $1.4 million with $1.1 million going toward the facility’s construction.
