After nearly nine months of calling the Eastman School their temporary home, the kids in the Concord Boys & Girls Club returned to the organization’s Bradley Street location on Monday. The pool balls were still wrapped up when Shaquanna McEachern, the club’s unit director, stood up in one of the recreation rooms and explained the new layout to the kids in the after school program. The kids weaved in and out the freshly painted rooms as they toured in groups. They also got to experience the brand new gym, which with its brand new floor inspired a new rule. Only sneakers on the court.
