Lamar Community Center Front of Building

Lamar Annual Fundraiser Underway

Dear Friends of Lamar,

2016 has been a great year for Lamar. We offered 4 weeks of youth art classes during the summer, where over 50 kids attended. The building was used by many area groups for private parties and dances, including the second annual Lamar Fiber Festival which was attended by over 300 people. The annual Ken McKenzie Kids Fishing Contest was hosted at Lamar.

We want to thank the many supporters of Lamar over the years, and recognize all of the hard work and dedication so many have given to Lamar.

This year Lamar is asking for your financial support. Financial donations will be put to very good use towards furthering the community centers' purpose. The purpose of Lamar is to maintain the historic building for community use and to provide arts and cultural programming. To do this we need your support.

Looking forward to 2017, Lamar plans to provide several weeks of youth art classes and community dances and we would love to host your event.

The Lamar annual budget is about $8000.00 in order to keep the building operational. Please join us in keeping the doors open to Lamar while continuing to provide unique events and programming in this beautiful, historic site.

Your donation to Lamar matters. Your support is a vote of confidence in Lamar's future. As a place of gathering, history and learning, Lamar is an asset in the lives of area residents.

Making a donation is easy, at the Lamar website or via mail to our PO Box. For questions please email us at lamar.community@gmail.com

Thank you Lamar Board of Directors
