Jensen Center celebrates 30 years
By Cassie Lennox
This year, the Lettie W. Jensen Community Center in Amherst will be celebrating 30 years of serving the Tomorrow River community with a 30th Anniversary Celebration.
Tickets for the event are $16, which includes a free drink of beer, wine or soft drink.
Tickets can be purchased online at lettiejensencenter.org, by calling 715-824-5202 or at the Jensen Center.
On Saturday, Nov. 11, the Jensen Center will be celebrating its anniversary in being a vital, iconic part of the community with a party complete with food and music, and a presentation of the center’s Person of the Year.
“Each year we acknowledge a person of the year,” said Cathy Praxmarer, executive director at the Jensen Center. “And this year we are going to do it at the anniversary party, which will be really neat, because we get to congratulate them and also look back and acknowledge other persons of the year that we’ve had in the past, and look at our sponsors and volunteers and thank them.”
