"A Community United"

Committed to promoting community fellowship by providing a safe, positive, and supervised environment to gather regardless of race, creed, or color.

In 1990, Jerald Aldridge came to work for the City of Brewster as Park Manager. In 1991, Jerald presented an idea to the City Council to open a Recreation Center for the City's youth. The first Recreation Center was a one-room building approximately 3,000 square feet previously used for storage. Jerald and a handful of volunteers turned that building into a safe and comfortable place for the kids of Brewster to come to play, study, and sometimes just have a place to be. After a few years and several hundred members, the Recreation Center became too small. Jerald had bigger dreams, which included a larger facility to house all the kids in Brewster that wished to be a member. Thanks to a Community Development Block Grant and a lot of hard work on the part of Jerald and several other City staff members and volunteers, construction began on a new Community Center. The Community Center boasts a whopping 12,000 square feet which includes a gym, game room, computer lab, full kitchen facilities, and houses Okanogan County Headstart. We now have a center that provides services to all citizens of Brewster. Where the kids can still come and play games, use the gym, use computers, or study. A place to hold a meeting, large or small. A place to hold a wedding reception, a dance, a baptism, a bazaar, or a quinceañera.
