Lindeman, who retired from Lakota Schools in 2015, started as a teacher in the district in 1992 and his long and varied career included coaching boys and girls sports and leading numerous student clubs and activities.
Earlier this month, Alderson revealed to the Journal-News the club’s scheduled opening, which had been projected for December or January, is now targeted for November.
The $9 million fund-raising goal for the two-story, 30,000 square-foot center is now taking shape at the site of the former Lakota Union School in Olde West Chester at 8735 Cincinnati Dayton Road.
The club will be the largest structure in the resurgence of the historical Olde West Chester business district along Cincinnati-Dayton Road between Interstate 75 and West Chester Road.
The current Boys & Girls Club on West Chester’s Smith Road serves about 300 families, but Alderson said she and other officials are confident many more will take advantage of the club’s many sports, educational, social and other programs.
