The Boys & Girls Club of Washington County’s mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. The club has been successfully serving the community since 1941 and currently serves approximately 1,000 county children at our seven locations through Washington County.


The Boys & Girls Club of Washington County announced a new scholarship in honor of retiring director Jim Deaner.
The scholarship, which is housed at the Community Foundation of Washington County, honors Jim’s tenure with the club and his passion for the youth of Washington County. 
"Awarding an annual scholarship to a deserving club member was the perfect way to recognize Jim Deaner’s 38 years of service with the Boys & Girls Club,” Board President Bill DeTora said. 
Jim started at the Boys & Girls Club of Washington County in December of 1979. When he started, the organization only ran one club at its Pennsylvania Avenue location in Hagerstown. Over the years, he grew the organization to four total clubs and three rural extensions. He was also integral in assisting Frederick County in starting a Boys & Girls Club. 
The Jim Deaner Scholarship at the Community Foundation of Washington County will start being awarded to eligible students in the spring of 2019. 
People interested in donating to this fund can visit www.cfwcmd.org or contact Boys & Girls Club Executive Director Addie Nardi at 301-733-5422.
