Wildfire

We are truly fortunate to live in an environment where natural disasters and emergences are fairly rare.  But our string of good luck won’t last forever and we need to be ready when the next earthquake rumbles, Mt. Rainier blows its top, or we encounter some manmade disaster.  Now is the time to prepare.

 

To help facilitate this, the Community Center works with local citizens to be ready when needed.  Among other things, we participate in the City’s annual Emergency Preparedness Fair in the fall, we provide education on how to prepare, and we have an agreement to make our facility available to the Red Cross in the event of a regional emergency. 

 

It’s never too late to begin getting ready.  If you have taken steps to prepare, this event is a great opportunity to review  and update your plans and emergency supplies for both your home and your business.  You can get a headstart on your emergency preparations by putting together the things that you will need in your Go-Bag in the event of a disaster.  You can find a list of items to put aside here.    While you will want to customize you list based on your personal needs it’s a great place to start.

Friends N' Fun

One of the most valuable partnerships enjoyed by the Community Center is with Friends N’ Fun, a social activities group for Maple Valley area residents with special needs. The group is designed for individuals ages 16 and up and meets on Tuesday evenings at the Center or the Den, depending on that evening’s activity. Friends N’ Fun provides these young adults with the opportunity to socially engage with their peers in a fun setting, often leading to the formation of lifelong friendships.  

Friends N' Fun meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm in The Den Youth Center

3rd Tuesdays from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm in the GMVCC Main Hall.

 

Homeschool Support

Does your child struggle at school? Is your little one just not ready to deal with crowds of children in a public school situation? Perhaps your family situation or business would allow you to travel often, and you want everyone to enjoy the opportunity. Have you heard so many wonderful things about homeschooling that you just want to see what it’s all about? Families decide to homeschool for all sorts of reasons, and then often continue homeschooling simply because of the freedom and they like the effect it's had on their children and family life. Come hang out and meet other homeschooling families, make friends and become part of our homeschooling community!

Maple Valley Homeschoolers meets every Tuesday from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm in the GMVCC Main Hall. Contact Anna Fernandez for information.
