It’s not unusual to see the Boys & Girls Club of East Aurora’s gym full of young people on a chilly Saturday afternoon in February. Not so many years ago (well, depending on your definition of not so many years ago) my brother Jason and I might have been two of those youngsters crowding the club’s gym for a game of bowling pin dodgeball, under the watchful eyes of Ken Whitney and Dick Bove. Of course, back then the gym was really nothing more than a high-ceilinged room in the club’s original facility, the long-gone Clement Hall—a venerable, if antediluvian (a fancy word for dilapidated, RIP Snake) wood-frame structure. To us, though, it was a palace where kids were king and fun was the order of the day.
