Celebrate 100 Years with Redland Community Center

We need Volunteers!

In 1920 the Community Center was built as the Grand Junction Country Club and Golf Course. So that makes 2020 the facility's 100th year in operation. We plan to have many events to celebrate the 100 years and show off the Grand Center for the community.

I thought I would fill you in with what's been happening out at Redlands Community Center. Last year we put on a New Year's Eve Extravaganza Dinner, complete with silent auction, band and dancing, beautiful decorations and of course champagne toast. The committee worked so hard and it was a BIG success. We made enough money to have the floors refinished. They look brand new, its beautiful! Other projects planned for RCC in 2020 include: New swamp cooler, trees in parking area, stages in amphitheater and lighting as well as handicap accessibility in amphitheater, paint exterior doors and windows, storm windows, and parking lot resealed and striped. As you can see RCC is moving and grooving.

This year for the 100 year celebration we have 5 events planned during the year, and we need your help! If you could help with the planned BBQs (we always need great chefs to flip burgers and brats), or if you plant a garden and have more tomatoes lettuce etc. than you need lets us know. We also need help taking tickets for the events. Or if you know of someone with a 1920s car that would love to show it off for our car show let the chairmen know. We just need woman and manpower to help with the events.
