A bright new year at the community center

It’s a bright New Year! And, here’s wishing everyone a bright new future. The community center staff hopes everyone had a fun, safe evening with family and friends. We look forward to seeing all our friends, new and old, this year.

If you have not gotten the chance to make it to the center, please take a little time to come in and say, “Hello.”

Again, may everyone’s future be brighter this year.

Free Programs

Free programs, that’s what we are looking for. Maybe a book club, a dining adventure night (show a film on a country or state, and dine on its cuisine). I know you have more ideas, let me hear from you. Just give me a call, and I’ll see what we can get started on. Call Michelle at 264-4152.

Remember you can come and play basketball at the center. We do have some regularly scheduled events, but please call the center and get the open hours of the day.

Preschooler’s playgroup. The community center is supporting Pagosa’s preschoolers by providing use of the gym on Thursday mornings from 10 a.m-noon. Bring clean shoes with non-marking soles, as well as balls, ride-on toys and bikes with clean tires. A parent or guardian needs to stay, so no drop-offs, please.
