COLUMBIA — The Boys & Girls Club of Columbia needs and wants more space. First, the needs: The nonprofit club, which provides a supervised place for children from kindergarten through 12th grade to go before and after school, serves about 85 of them a day. Overall, the club serves about 300 children. But more than 100 others are on a waiting list.
