Alex Voths gewidmet von Anna u. Alex Voths.

Anna and Alex Voth hosted the Yarrow Boys' Club on their Eckert Road property, in the renovated chicken barn and in the basement of their house. Boys from all over Yarrow joined their Eckert Road cousins and friends for these evening meetings. While these sessions were orientated toward acquiring skills in growing up as Christians, the boys also looked forward to these social gatherings to spend an evening with younger and older comrades.

Mr. Voth died in 1953, and for two or three years Ed Neufeld and John Neufeld kept the Yarrow Boys' Club going until it was replaced by the Wednesday night meetings in the basement (east side) of the Bible School building.
