The Club allows Zhayne to remain supervised after school and exposes him to new friendships, unique opportunities and exciting activities like gardening and printmaking.

At 4 p.m. on a Wednesday, about 20 elementary students swarm into the lobby of after-school education program Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver headquarters in Commerce City. They’re abuzz with post-school energy, eating Cheetos, playing punch buggy and arguing over who could beat who in a foot race.
We are sad to announce that long-time Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver Board Member Dick Deane has passed away. Dick served on the Board of Directors for over 30 years and was given Honorary Lifetime status in 1996. Dick served as Vice Chairman in 1977, and as Chairman during his board tenure from 1978-1979 and again from 1992-1993.
Dick and his wife, Ze, have been longtime supporters and friends of the organization and made significant contributions to the Shopneck Boys & Girls Club capital campaign, and most recently the Suncor Boys & Girls Club, where the Learning Center was named in their honor.
We will miss Dick and his fierce commitment to Boys & Girls Club kids and the work we do each day. With his abundant heart and compassion for Club members, he always wanted to know what more he could do to support our children and teens.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, Clayton Early Learning and Denver Hospice.
We lost a true advocate, leader and friend of Boys & Girls Clubs. But in this time of sadness and reflection, please join us in honoring and celebrating the life of Dick and his tremendous commitment to making our entire community a more vibrant place for children and teens to learn, grow and play.
