Leaders say it takes 100 to 120 thousand dollars to run an individual club--money they don't have. The Boy's and Girl's Clubs in Frenchtown, Ft. Braden, and another in Miccosukee will all close.

Samuel Streit with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big Bend said, "In the last few months, as things have tightened up, we've known we had to make a decision. We don't want to make these decisions like this, but we have to--to be responsible for the future of the organization."

The Boy's and Girl's Club says it is working to accommodate parents and children who are a part of the local clubs.
