How Your Gift Helps JCC
It is one thing to build a building—but bringing it to life with exciting activities, classes and events for all ages is really why the Jacksonville Community Center exists. And we’re off to a good start. Since our grand opening in January 2019 this is just a sample of what’s been happening there:
- Kids exploding out the door, excited to tell about the family birthday party they just attended.
- Lively preparations as dancers transform themselves into an impressive dragon for the Chinese New Year Parade.
- The mutual support of a weekly A.A. group helping to maintain sobriety.
- The joy of a long-married couple as their family surprises them with a 60th anniversary party.
- Energetic meetings of the Boosters, Jacksonville Seniors and the Jacksonville Chamber.
- The commitment from a room full of parents and children in a meeting about reducing toxin use in our community.
- The Great Room filled with adults moving through the graceful positions of a Tai Chi class and a yoga class.
- Children learning rhythm and notes while energetically playing on 5 gallon plastic buckets.
