It Takes a Community!

by Bodie Wager and the North San Juan Community Center Board

But It takes a community!!!!!!!  Over the years the “NSJ Community Center” has gone through many leadership changes & a few title changes since the founders first gifted this valuable central resource to our sprawling, varied & beautiful community.  But without the sustained support & engagement of the community we all stand to loose this “Gem of The San Juan Ridge”.  We need responsible people willing to step up and:

Serve On The Board   *first & foremost*, Help Haul Trash To The N.S.J. Transfer Station or McCortney Landfill, Help With The Monthly Food Bank, Be “On Call” to Donate Professional Services, Plumbing, Carpentry, Painting, Book Keeping, Cleaning, Bathrooms, Floors, Grounds, etc., Donate Funds, Help Prep & Clean Up After The Tuesday Lunch, Organize & Serve On The Committee To Put On The Easter Egg Hunt, Organize & Serve On Committees for fundraisers, IE, Buck Stew or The Cherry Festival, Help Write Grants, Help With Outreach & Technical Support, Rent & Use The Facility, Present Classes, Volunteer To Be Poll Workers @ Election Time

The NSJ Community Center Board has currently dwindled to five members down from nine due to the recent resignation of several members who had served way past the two & three year terms they volunteered for and the apparent lack of community interest to refill those seats.  Three of the remaining members are also way past their terms & need to get back to other things in their lives.  All of the present board members have jobs, some full time, which they rely on for income.  In short,  !!! WE NEED HELP !!! 

All of the, soon to retire, board members love this place & the community they serve & have agreed to stay and help acclimate & transition new board members to their tasks.  If you are interested in serving your community PLEASE show up to our next board meeting, 6:00 PM Aug. 24th or contact us at:   nsjcommunitycenter@gmail.com   

Or via snail mail at:    P.O. Box 324   N.S.J., CA   95960      

IF WE CAN’T FILL THE VACANT BOARD SEATS & THOSE OF RETIREING TERMED OUT MEMBERS THE NSJ COMMUNITY CENTER WILL CEASE TO EXIST.      

IF YOU WANT A HEALTHY NSJ COMMUNITY CENTER, THIS IS URGENT!!!!!

With sincere hopes for the future, The North San Juan Community Center Board
