Our community gives so much support to The Community Center that we feel it's important for us to give back. Here are some of the programs that we are actively involved in.
911 Emergency Signs
In cooperation with the Boothbay Harbor Police Department, the area Fire Departments and the Boothbay Region Ambulance Service, The Community Center makes 911 Emergency Signs for residences and businesses of the region. The signs are highly reflective and our First Responders have been trained to look for them. Having your house visible can make he difference between life and death. They also help UPS, Fed-Ex and other delivery services find you. The cost is $20 per sign.
