Make the McKenzie Connection!

Moving forward

As many of you know the Upper McKenzie Community Center hosted the relief center, our version of a free community store, just after the Holiday Farm fire last September until March, helping our neighbors who had suffered so much get through the winter. Now that the winter weather threat is over, the library is currently setting up operations and will be opening in July – we are so excited to have them!

The annual members meeting was held earlier in June and resulted in a vote to change the non-profit status type from a 501(c)7 to a 501(c)3 which will allow us to take larger donations and they will be tax-deductible. This change will allow us to collect funds for the necessary repairs this beloved building desperately needs. The board members were voted in and I was elected to be board President of the UMCC, an honor to be of service and help move us forward.

There is still plenty of room for events let us know if you need to use the space. On that note, the Ice Cream Social is back, coming in August, and volunteers are needed. Reach us at [email protected]. I’ll see you there!

Best Regards,

John Carlile

UMCC President
