Educator who created District 200's afterschool Kids Club to retire
WOODSTOCK – Dave Blumhorst remembers when Kids Club was just an idea of his wife’s at the dinner table.
“She’d always be talking about ... ‘[Bobby] has no parents home until 5:30, 6 o’clock,’ ” Blumhorst said. “For a long time it bothered her, and then she came up with this idea for Kids Club.”
Blumhorst’s wife, Lynne, would spend the next 15 years building her idea from a small after-school gathering of fewer than a dozen students to a districtwide program of about 230. Today, Kids Club exists in all District 200 grade schools and the yearlong program gives kids a place to go during summer and winter breaks.
