Pitt County opened the doors to a new facility for area youth Monday afternoon.
The Boys and Girls Club in Ayden is now open to the public. A ceremony celebrating the grand opening was held inside the new recreation center.
The new 17,000 square-foot club features a full gymnasium with six basketball goals, a large game room, a computer lab, arts and crafts room, and a snack bar with a full kitchen to serve 120 kids daily.
Volunteers, board members, and private sponsors raised 1.2 million dollars to cover the cost of the project.
