Arleigh Porter

” The BGC provides a modern and safe place for our community’s kids to go after school and continue to learn by being with other kids of similar ages, but yet different backgrounds.  This allows them to socialize and learn from one another, along with learning from the great staff that we have at BGC!  It also allows our kids the chance to learn about healthy snacks and enjoy great meals, that some of our kids might not normally have.  The bottom line is that the BGC is a SAFE place that provides additional opportunity for our kids to have FUN & LEARN more about life! “

~Arleigh Porter – Chief of Police, Sturgeon Bay Police Department
