What the Community is Saying

I wanted to thank you for your help with getting the community center set up last night. The event was a great success and the community center and kitchen are amazing You guys have done a wonderful job with the design and build.

Thank you for all your help with our event. The venue exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful to have it available to us. So many of our members had not visited the Jacksonville trails, so it’s a great opportunity to show them what a beautiful resource the trails and conserved lands are to the greater community. We will book our meeting for next year.

What a great space you’ve created there! We had such a lovely time!

Worked out great having the caterer in the front cottage. That left the Great Room for the 12 tables.

My son loved the bucket band. The teacher had incredible energy and I was amazed how she was able to direct the kid’s energy into bucket drums. I hope JCC offers more classes like for our children. I’ll sign up in an instant.

Wow! The Great Room was much bigger than I expected.

The event was a great success…the center and kitchen are amazing… you guys have done a wonderful job with the design and build.
