The Jacksonville Community Center will hold its GRAND OPENING on Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Everyone is welcome to be a part of this momentous occasion.  After nearly 20 years of planning and with hundreds of people donating money and volunteer help Jacksonville has a brand-new community center. Your community center will serve people of all ages for years and generations to come with quality programs and events.

Come celebrate the Center’s Grand Opening! At this community celebration there will be live music, beverages, appetizers and many of your neighbors will be there to meet and greet.  A fun time will be had by all!  There will be a short program at 5:15 p.m.

“In the beginning very few thought we could, and then there were few who thought we should; we built a team and now we have achieved a dream for so many, for years, hoped we would.”  ~Rick Patsche, JCC Board President

A Final $30,000 is Needed to Equip & Furnish the Center.

Help Us Reach the Finish Line by Supporting the Jacksonville Community Center.

To fully finish this incredible community project we have one final fund raising push to make so that we can complete final construction and equipment payments and to purchase the following necessary items: sound reduction panels, window treatments to allow room darkening, a large cover for the kitchen pass-through window, movable floor mats, microphones, speakers, video screen and a projector.

Several months ago we asked you to help defray a $75,000 shortfall. Today that gap is $30,000 so significant progress has been made because of your support. For JCC to be fully operational, we are asking for your financial support to cross the finish line. Please send your tax-deductible donation to: Jacksonville Community Center, P.O. Box 1435, Jacksonville OR  97530.
