STAFF PHOTO ANDY SHUPE Eric Henderson, 8, of West Fork takes a 3-point shot as he plays Monday in the main gymnasium at the Boys & Girls Club of Fayetteville. Club officials are planning the construction of additional space on the north side of the building to include a new gymnasium and classroom space.

Leaders of the Boys & Girls Club knew they wanted room to grow in 2003 when the youth center opened off Rupple Road.


Boys & Girls Club

Money to build the Boys & Girls Club of Fayetteville, 560 N. Rupple Road, came from a roughly $9 million grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation in 2000, along with donations from businesses and area residents. The city built a parking lot, recreational fields and a walking trail on 9 acres surrounding the center.
