The Lake Arbor Foundation, Inc. (LAFI)

The Lake Arbor Foundation, Inc. (LAFI) was chartered in the State of Maryland in 1997. The corporation was organized exclusively for educational and charitable purposes and activities, among which was the acquisition and operation of a recreational facility for the benefit of the community known as Mitchellville, Maryland, including the immediate area surrounding Mitchellville. The Internal Revenue Service designated LAFI as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, public charitable organization in 1998. LAFI looks forward to celebrating its 25th anniversary as of October 6th.

LAFI facilitates individual and community improvement by providing educational and recreational programs to Mitchellville, Maryland and the surrounding areas.

We envision the Mitchellville community as a healthy and holistic place to live.

A Dream Becomes Reality


Samuel H. Dean

When the community’s dream to acquire and operate a recreational facility for the benefit of the entire community intersected with the Lake Arbor golf course owner’s desire to subdivide 6.8 acres and sell it at a reduced rate in order to get a tax-deductible donation, the Lake Arbor Foundation, Inc. was formed under the leadership of the Founding President, Samuel H. Dean. The first Board of Directors was Paul Nance, Mary Coleman, William Coleman, Jesse Muse and Charles Bolling.

Ulysses Currie

The Honorable Ulysses Currie, Legislative District 25, facilitated a Maryland State matching grant without which the purchase could not have been made. The Lake Arbor Foundation Center consists of the Dean Room, Herman L. Murrell Pavilion an Olympic-sized swimming pool that is open to the public , bathhouses, tennis and basketball courts, parking area, and parkland.
