An Open Letter About the Historic Civic Center FoundationFrom the Board of Directors
It is our mission to help build a stronger, more vibrant Washburn community. We know that you share this mission with us. Now is the time for you to step into the role of supporting a foundation that will help define Washburn’s character for the next 50 years and beyond.
The Historic Civic Center Foundation will support community projects that make living in, working in and visiting Washburn a better experience. The first steps in achieving these goals are upgrades to the civic center building, “The Club”, that will allow it to meet 21st century needs. The building will be open to the community and serve a variety of functions, all of which will benefit Washburn.
The building, “The Club”, has been saved from demolition, received a $200,000 exterior renovation, and been donated in full to the Historic Civic Center Foundation by Jim and Mary Nowakowski. This major gift, valued at $475,000, means that the foundation starts this project debt free, with no mortgage to pay.
The total amount needed to complete the entire civic center building renovation is estimated at between $1,275,000 to $1,400,000. We need your financial support now! This is your opportunity to participate in a project that will impact the community of Washburn during your lifetime and beyond. It is an opportunity for you to make a significant contribution to the lives and memories of a new generation, and recognize the contributions of those who lived and worked here in the past.
We are ready to talk to you at any time to answer your questions, and to clarify the mission of the Historic Civic Center Foundation and the scope of this project.
