A local agency wants the community to know it's back, after getting hit hard by June's flooding.

The Boys and Girls Club of Western Broome held this open house today in Endicott.

The agency suffered flood damage in June and had to close for a few months.

But today's event was to let people know that the Boys and Girls Club is back.

The day included lots of free fun, including arts and crafts, music and food.

There were also raffles, giveaways and lots of games for the kids.

"We're trying to let the public know we're back, we're trying to welcome members we've lost over the summer because they went elsewhere, obviously because we were closed for a few months," said Executive Director Mario Salati.

The open house also included tours to show the public how the building has recovered from the flood damage.
