Help create summer fun at the community center

The Ross Aragon Community Center’s mission is to provide affordable services and space for all ages and diverse groups to gather for social, sports, civic, art and culture, educational, business and faith-based activities, and to create and coordinate activities for the benefit of the whole community. Please join us in meeting our mission statement this summer by volunteering for a child-based activity. We currently have many programs available to our community and would like to have something focused on children. If you have any ideas and would like to volunteer your time, please contact the center at 264-4152. All community center-sponsored programs are free to the public.

Dodge Ball will be starting again on June 8. Kids of all ages may come and play open court dodge ball from 1-3 p.m. on Fridays all summer long.
