Community Center Contract

Community Caterers

The Community Caterers are a group of volunteers who work together on banquets and other food-related needs in the Community Centre.  As well as providing convenient service for renters needing a catered meal, all profits made are used in and for the operation of the Community Centre.  Volunteers can assist with food preparation, table setting, setup, kitchen assistance during the meal and cleanup.  Coordinators call volunteers approximately one week in advance to see if they can help for a particular event.

If you are interested in volunteering with the Community Caterers or are in need of caterers please contact Charlotte at 780-582-3787.

Community Center Fundraiser Concert:  July 25 @ 7 pm.
As you can see from the graphs, regular rental, grants, and donations barely cover the costs of operating the Community Hall. Not shown in the graphs is the  income from casino fundraisers. This gives an influx approximately every three years, and helps balance the ‘off years’. Regular income is not used for special projects. Those are separate fundraising projects through building grants and other avenues. The  purchases such as lighting, sound system, etc., are  handled through project specific donations, where  individuals or organizations donate for the specific purpose of purchasing big ticket items.
This is your opportunity to come out and support our  wonderful facility while enjoying and evening of fun and entertainment featuring  Doug and Friends, Quartet  O’Eight.  Jody Pettigrew, and   Randy Howell. Admission—$20.00. 
All proceeds go to the Forestburg Community Center   Association.
Check local businesses to participate in our  50/50 draws.
