Since May 2019, our community has come together to raise what we needed fro the budget adjustments for the new hall capital project. The Board and project volunteers are overwhelmed by the trust, support and guidance put forward by so many neighbors! Than you for caring enough to be engaged and financially invested in the huge undertaking. You will not be disappointed and we are so excited for everyone to start enjoying our new space!
The matching Angel Donor pledge of $100,000 was matched completely and recently surpassed by additional donations. Donations are still welcomed as we try to finalize budget for items noted in the construction committee update.
Final project items are being approved with the additional funds from recent donations. It looks like we will complete most outstanding items.

I hope your summer is going well and you’ve had a chance to relax with family and friends.
We’re getting so close to getting occupancy of the new hall which is very exciting. The building is looking great, inside and out and we’re scheduled to start programming for September. Thank you to our Strategic Planning and Marketing Committee for the many hours they’ve spent to make all of this happen. You can expect a construction and fundraising update in your mailbox very soon. Continue to check ckecommunity.com for the latest community updates, events and programming.
We’re hoping you’re able to join us for our Grand Opening celebration on September 15th from 2 – 5pm. Our planning committee has been working hard to put this together. This event will be preceded by our annual Recycle Day from 9am- 2pm in the Henry Wise Wood parking lot.
For those who were lucky enough to get tickets and attend the Backyard Will concert it was another great night, so I was told. Thanks again to Doug, the event sponsors and those who helped out with the event. The proceeds from this concert have been going to fund the tennis court renovations scheduled to happen next spring. We also wanted to give a big shout out to Kim Flanagan of Evolved Style and her sponsors for hosting her July neighborhood fundraising event, Stampede to the Runway. Guests enjoyed a fashion show, brunch refreshments, cocktails and pool-side pop-up shops. I’m told it was a great event. Thank you, Kim!
Enjoy the rest of your summer, I hope to see you at the hall opening.
