The director of the Arlington Boys & Girls Club, Bill Kinney, has announced an extra special event as part of this year’s auction. They plan to honor alumni of the club at the 15th annual auction set for May 2.

“We are searching for alumni,” Kinney said. “We know there are some college athletes, firemen, police officers, and maybe even United State Representative Rick Larsen,” Kinney said.

The Arlington Boys & Girls Club was founded in the early 1970s in downtown Arlington, occupying a couple of different buildings until the new club opened in 1993.

“I know for a fact that I played basketball at the club in 1973,” Kinney said.
