Changing the lives of youth: Boys & Girls Club begins expansion in Jacksonville’s Arlington area

An almost 50-year-old Jacksonville Boys & Girls Club is now named after founder Baxter E. Luther and an expansion has begun. Baxter Luther was one of those folks who saw a need and took action. Almost 50 years later and three years after his death, the Woodland Acres club serves about 80 youth ages 6 to 18 and an expansion that will nearly double capacity is about to get underway.
