BGCFW Project Blueprint Update: Thank you for an amazing year!

Chris Roberts, friends and student volunteers ended the Project Blueprint year with a mixture of projects for the kids.

After creating candy machines at the academy last week, the kids were exposed to additional basic carpentry including a power tool and pounding nails with a $300 hammer. Additional basics of electricity and plumbing as well as a masonry project at the Fort Wayne Community Schools Career Academy masonry room were also part of the learning experience.

The club wishes to thank all of the volunteers in each of the building trades, our friends at FWCS Career Academy and our donors and sponsors for helping this past year to show our members pathways to better futures. They really nailed it!

It’s been an amazing year and we will see you all back here in the fall.
