Detail: Nearly 15 years ago, a group of concerned citizens- led by Tony & Tommie Saragas- joined together to form Harlan County Youth Sports, an organization devoted to providing positive sports leagues and activities to the children of Harlan County. It didn't take long for this group to realize that the children of our area needed much more than sports. They needed the opportunities that only a Boys & Girls Club could provide and in April 2003, the Harlan County Boys and Girls Club opened its first dedicated youth facility- The Cawood Ledford Boys & Girls Club- located at the former Loyall Elementary School. In January 2005, the Club moved into a storefront facility in downtown Harlan and launched a massive capital campaign to raise funds to build a new facility. Led by architect Dwyne Wilkerson and trustees Rick Fox and Don Parsons, construction began on a new, permanent facility in June 2006. In August 2007, the newly constructed Cawood Ledford facility opened in the Fairview section of Harlan. Named for Kentucky's legendary sports announcer, the Cawood Ledford Club is tailor-made for our members and offers a large game room, an arts and crafts room, a technology lab, a fitness room, an education lab, kitchen and administrative offices. Scores of children, from both county and city schools, take part in the life-changing programs offered in this facility each day.
