Dedication of Old School Community Center
This beautiful old structure will be completed for this Heritage Day and there will be a DEDICATION on Friday May 26, 2017 @ 1:00 pm.
The second floor will include a large ballroom for receptions and community programs, plus art and cultural events. A Wall of Honor, composed of engraved plaques, will be displayed as a permanent show of gratitude to all those who have made substantial contributions to the restoration of this magnificent building.
