The Methow Valley Community Center is beginning its 2016 membership drive.

Dear Community:

I am an old building but I’m not ready to be put out to pasture. Quite the contrary. I am full of energy, laughter and activity. I’m thrilled about my positive changes, my improved health in my heating, electrical, and upcoming sound improvement. This makes me feel so good and useful and valuable. Not to mention I look nice.

Thinking of all my friends who yearly step up to cover my bills, I want to remind you that you are part of a historical community that fosters gathering. Besides gathering for activities, I am also a place you can sit quietly to ponder and reflect in our Community and Memory Garden.

Many people visit me. They come to because of tae kwon do, the library, LFW Dance, Pipestone Music, Cascadia, the Methow Valley Community School, the Unitarian Church, the Christmas Bazaar, the Christmas concerts, the Farmers Market, the Okanogan County PUD, roller-skating parties, the Visitors Information Center or the Methow Valley Theatre.

I just realized my 2016 membership drive is starting now.

Membership is one of the best income generators I offer to keep the heat on, the rooms clean, the calendar full and organized for activities, the bathrooms open, the kitchen ready, the tables and chairs available, the new LCD projector to rent and the free but important feeling of seeing me looming on the horizon.

I hope you’ll continue to support me. I’ll be sending something to you in the mail. Please read it and return it with your membership. I need you in order to continue to serve you and to age well.
