Merrick Dedication & Open House Recap
On September 23, 2017, Merrick program participants, volunteers, staff, donors, community partners, and others came together to celebrate the exciting move. The event featured a special facility dedication to the Rory & Fran Ivory and Regina & Dick McCarthy families, who served as the former Merrick Community Services' Executive Directors and community leaders.

Guests learned about Merrick's work in the East Side community, explored the facility, and took part in a coinciding block party hosted by our friends and neighbors at Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church.

The goal of these introductory engagement tracks is not to steer youth into a career in science, but to plant the seed of discovery and learning. The Club hopes to create an environment where youth are actively participating in learning activities, demonstrating problem-solving skill s, and encouraged to be innovators.
