We opened our Community Center on August 29th, 2015. Since then, it has become a valued community resource. We are open Monday through Friday, located in the Meadow Mall between Boothbay Harbor Framers and the Family Dollar store.
The Community Center is staffed, furnished, and run entirely by volunteers. We offer free tea and coffee, snacks, WiFi and a warm welcome to visitors of all ages. We also offer close to 50 classes per week, all free, and all taught by volunteers.
The Center has several rooms, including a welcoming lobby area, office space, an arts and crafts room, a puzzle area, a resource room, and areas to hold classes, meetings, and/or play cards or board games, a teaching room, and a computer area. Across the hall, we have an Exercise Annex and a Fiber Arts room for weaving, knitting, crocheting, etc.
The Community Center won the Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce “Community Improvement Award” in 2016 and 2017, the "Community Service" award in 2017 and the "Community Service and Improvement" award in 2018.
As our motto says "Saving Lives and Changing Lives. .Every Day".
Our team consists of volunteers from your community. We volunteer our time and talents because we believe that all of the citizens of our Peninsula deserve a safe, welcoming place to learn, be informed and to socialize.
