Arenac Community Center to host a Christmas celebration


ARENAC COUNTY— The Arenac Community Center is hosting a Christmas celebration on Dec. 7. This event will include a catered dinner, raffles, and a presentation from the center with open discussion. Santa Claus will make a special guest appearance for the children and distribute goodie bags to each child at the end of the event. Doors will open at 5 p.m. and dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m.

The community center has some exciting visions for the future that it is thrilled to share with the public, as well as talk about what they are currently accomplishing.

According to fundraising and marketing committee member and board member Diane Morley, the center is currently working to establish a daycare for underserved families.

“We want to start small and expand from there,” Morley said. They are also hoping to open their senior citizen game area full-time.

This is the center’s first time hosting a presentation for the community. A panel of board members and the committee will be present to answer questions the public may have. Morley said they are hoping for a good turnout and if families are interested in learning more about the community center, this is the perfect opportunity.

The event will be catered and decorated by A Katered Affair By Karen, with two buffets, one specifically made to appeal to the children. There will also be raffles and drawings, drawing tickets are included in the dinner ticket purchase. Table sponsorships are available as well.

All proceeds go towards materials and programs that benefit the children of Arenac County.

The center is still seeking volunteers for the celebration. To volunteer or purchase tickets, call 989-946-7114 or text 989-313-9722. Tickets can also be purchased at Kitzman’s Flowers, or Sunrise Market in Au Gres. Tickets for adults are $25 and $15 for children 12 and under.

“This is our community. It can be anything we want it to be. We need to hear what you are interested in and what you are willing to support and let’s make it happen!” said Morley.
