We’re so excited to break ground on the renovation and expansion of our Baxter E. Luther Boys & Girls Club, formally known as the Woodland Acres Boys & Girls Club.

Thank you to our partners who made this historic project possible: Phyllis Arnold and family, Paul and Caren Felker and family, Sally Lott and family, Summit Contracting Group, Deerwood Rotary Club, Arlington Rotary Club, and PQH Group. Your support, insight, and vision have helped make this renovation and expansion a reality!

The Baxter E. Luther Boys & Girls Club renovation and expansion includes the enclosing of the existing pavilion and converting the basketball court into a gymnasium equipped with restrooms, office, and HVAC room. The main building will also be expanded with an additional classroom, computer room, arts and crafts room and bathrooms. The additions to the Club will nearly double the operating capacity of the historic Club.

The Woodland Acres Boys and Girls Club’s name has been changed to honor, Baxter E. Luther, who purchased the land back in 1972. Since then, this Club has been a safe place for Arlington area youth to build their own great futures through educational programs, caring staff, and fun activities after school.
