Boys & Girls Club honors Lozo for service

Tonawanda News — Doug Lozo is being honored for 30 years of service for the Boys and Girls Club of the Northtowns, serving at both the City of Tonawanda and North Tonawanda clubs.

Lozo, the son of Boys and Girls Club of the Tonawandas past executive and club director Glenn Lozo and wife Ruth who was also a key staff person, has touched many thousands of lives every year.

“He is arguably one of the best program staff the club has ever had,” said Bob O’Brocta, director of operations for the Boys and Girls Club of the Northtowns.

“His energy level and desire to keep our members entertained is his biggest attribute,” O’Brocta said.

Doug Lozo will be honored for his service at the annual dinner at Acqua on Oct. 10.

“Doug is not only a program person, he’s a guy who assisted in club maintenance and gym rental duty,” O’Brocta said.

“He has always made our members a priority and his ability to run tournaments in the game room for youth of all ages attracted dozens of local youth daily,” O’Brocta said.

Among his accomplishments, Lozo constructed a Bingo chip baseball game out of wood in the 1990s that easily took 500 hours to construct, attracting thousands of participants.

Since the merger of the Tonawanda and North Tonawanda clubs, becoming the Northtowns Boys and Girls Club, Doug Lozo has reached out to children from all seven clubs with his talents at special events and holiday camps

“In my 25 years as unit director at the Franklin Club, the one word that Doug never used was ‘no.’ There were endless times when our club and I were lauded for work directly related to Doug Lozo,” O’Brocta concluded.

Tickets for the annual dinner are $40 and available by calling O’Brocta at 873-9842 ext. 209.
