CONYERS, GA—A.R. “Gus” Barksdale Boys & Girls Club is tentatively scheduled to reopen on Monday, Jan. 9. The facility was closed after several pipes burst due to subfreezing temperatures.
Repairs are underway to clean up water damage inside the building, officials stated in a letter to parents.
“While we recognize this closure presents an inconvenience and hardship for many families, the safety of our Club members and staff remains our top priority. Once restoration is complete and it is safe to reopen our Blue doors, we will notify families and staff immediately,” the letter stated.
