Community Center holds annual meeting, seeks volunteers

On Thursday, June 16, members and leaders of the Estacada Community Center gathered for the center’s annual meeting.

Board Chairwoman Karen Hovda and board member Valerie Renteria discussed the programs offered by the center, which strives to support citizens of Estacada and surrounding areas in a variety of ways. One crucial program is Meals on Wheels, which provides daily hot meals to its recipients.

“The need for volunteers in a variety of areas is an on-going concern for us, and of course donations are always welcomed. There are a number of membership giving levels, and rental of the center for private parties and community events is also an important source of income for us," Hovda said.

For information on volunteering or becoming a supporting member of the Center, call 503-630-7454.
