4_6_11 Oracle Community Center Oaks.psd

Oracle – The Oracle Community Center (OCC) is a non-profit corporation that works toward promoting and sponsoring programs to improve the community, including maintaining its facilities and keeping them ready for use.

All funds for running the Oracle Community Center, from insurance to utilities and maintenance, come from proceeds of fundraising events, private donations, membership dues and hall rentals. Which means that the more you join in and utilize the Oracle Community Center, the better it is for the whole community.

Come in, join in, and enjoy the new look of the OCC. The roof and eaves are redone. The chairs and doors are new; and the floors, thanks to the work of Rich Albright, are new, too. Karen Hendrickson has joined the OCC family to prepare delightful dishes in the kitchen every Monday.

There are many regularly scheduled events. On every third Saturday, the OCC holds a Park ‘n’ Swap event. Sell for $5 or browse for free. The next dates for the Park ‘n’ Swap are Nov. 16 and Dec. 21. Every Monday, a noon potluck lunch is open to all who want to come and spend time with their friends. Bring a dish or contribute a donation of $4 for members or $5 for guests. Show up early and you can join in Canasta, held from 9 am – Noon.

On Tuesday, join in a friendly game of Bridge from 12:30 pm – 4 pm. Refreshments will be served. Call Mary McClure at 896-2604. Wednesdays are for Sewing Bee and Tea from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm. You may bring your own handwork project or join in with projects already underway. Everyone is welcome to attend this social gathering where tea, coffee and a sweet treat is served. Projects include sewing, knitting, crochet, and crafts! For more information, contact Susie at 520- 896-2935. Mah-Jongg is the game to play on Thursday afternoons, from 1 pm – 4 pm. Beginners are welcome.

Every year, the OCC holds a special Thanksgiving lunch on the Monday before Thanksgiving. This year, in addition to the lunch at the center, homebound lunches are also being prepared, which the Fire Department will distribute. Stop by Nov. 25 at noon,and bring a dessert or vegetable dish large enough for 8-10 people, or purchase lunch at the price of $4 for members and $5 for non-members, and enjoy a great community event.

Even though the 2014 Oaks Festival, on April 26, may still seem a long way off, there is much to do and the OCC is looking for people to join in the planning with great ideas for activities. The theme for next year’s Oaks is “Horsin’ Around in Oracle.”

In January, the membership drive begins. The OCC is seeking a Rental Manager. If you are interested in joining in, or know someone else who is, please contact Shirley Swille.

In other news, the apple press is still for sale. It is now at the Dry River Trading Co, across from the Oracle Inn, on consignment.

If you are looking to sell what may be clutter to you but treasure to another, have a great meal, create a project, plan a graduation or wedding party the Oracle Community Center is a good place to visit. The fees for renting the center is $275 per day for Fridays and Saturdays or $175 on Sunday-Thursday, per day; or $35 per hour for up to four hours.

For more information on events, rentals, memberships or anything else, call Shirley Swille at 520-954-2722 or leave a message at the office at 896-9326.
