Celebrating 10 years at the community center

Where does time go?

The Ross Aragon Community Center will be celebrating 10 years of community service, rentals, fundraising and fun.

Join us on Sept. 14, 6-11 p.m., for a great time. D.J. Dude is going to keep you entertained with a variety of music. Delicious food will keep you energized. A cash bar will provide beverages to quench your thirst and door prizes will be awarded on the hour.

If you were here for the opening of the center and remember all of the excitement or weren’t here and would like to see what it was like 10 years ago, you won’t want to miss this.

If you have photos or information you would like to share about the community center’s opening or past events, e-mail them to or drop them off at the center.

The community center is looking for sponsors and supporters for the celebration.
