Oneida County could have a Boys and Girls Club as soon as next fall, if everything goes as planned.

The effort is being steered by Rhinelander Police Det. Sgt. Kyle Parish, who saw a void in the community that could be filled by a Boys and Girls Club in the city.

The club offers afterschool activities, homework help, and food for kids of all ages.

“It’s a safe place for them to go.  Unlike other organizations that help build things, this is an everyday thing during the school week, then every single day during the summer,” Parish said.
