FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Alpine Community Center Celebrates its New Home!
Monroe, OR January 17, 2011 - Welcome signs of change are beginning to appear in rural, unincorporated Alpine, the little community west of Monroe with more than its share of creative and collaborative spirit.
Pictured above are Andy Parsons, Rob Hinton, Sophia Parsons, Evelyn Lee, Laurie Halsey, John Scott, Pete Salerno, Dorothy Brinckerhoff and Patty Parsons.
On December 28, 2010 Alpine Community Center (ACC) announced that, thanks to a whirlwind of contributions and collaborations, it has purchased the vacant church building at 25184 Webster Avenue (Monroe, Oregon 97456) near the corner of Alpine Road and Bellfountain Road, to serve as a community meeting space and a home for its community service programs.
“In this economy, we decided to take a leap of faith to take advantage of the low price because the community demonstrated very clear support for the project” according to ACC board member, Roger Irvin.
ACC has been operating its grass roots, all volunteer programs since 2003 using space leased in the old Alpine Elementary School now owned and operated by Queen Bee Apiaries.
“The new ACC facility needs some small repairs and changes, but we are committed to making it hub of community activity and a visible sign of community vitality,” said Joyce Long, ACC President.
Alpine Community Center is hosting an Open House Party to celebrate acquisition of its new home at 25184 Webster Avenue, Monroe, Oregon on Saturday January 29 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm including food and entertainment. The event is free and the public is invited.
