Pumpkin Patch is Almost Here - October 17 & 18

Join us for 2 days of fall festival fun in Russ Pitman Park!  Our annual Pumpkin Patch will run from 11 am to 4 pm both Saturday and Sunday. The park will be filled with games, crafts, vendors, facepainting, activities that offer some light adventure for those who dare, and PUMPKINS, of course!

We've expanded our relationship with local food trucks and will have a "block party" of sorts along Evergreen with 3 different food trucks each day.  Of course, we'll also have popcorn, pizza, SnoBalls, Chick-fil-A (Saturday), and Firehouse Pizza.  Joining us for the first time this year is Fat Cat Creamery!  For more information, click here.

Donor Brick Campaign -- Leave Your Mark at the Center!

Brick inscriptions are a perfect way to pay tribute to someone important, commemorate your school year or honor a special teacher or parent. Bricks are also ideal graduation and birthday gifts and provide a meaningful way to memorialize a friend or relative. Proceeds of the brick campaign directly benefit the Gateway Project, which is the Center's first capital initiative.

Gateway Project Phase Two To Get Underway Fall 2015

We broke ground on Phase Two of our Gateway Renovation Project mid August, and construction will begin this fall. For more information about our renovation plans, visit our Gateway Project page. Check back on our home page for important updates to parking information and about access to the Henshaw House in August.
