"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.

Airport Stats

Anderson Field Airport is generally oriented east/west. It has a single, 4,000' by 60' runway with magnetic headings of 7 and 25. A single, 35' wide taxiway positioned perpendicular to the runway provides access to the 150' by 325' aircraft parking apron which contains 12 aircraft parking spaces. A fixed base operator's facility is located at the south edge of the parking apron. Seven private aircraft hangars and an agricultural aircraft spraying facility are located east of the parking apron. Anderson Field Airport is unusually long and wide compared to most general aviation airports in Washington Also it has a very clear approach and departure paths and side-to-side clearances.
These physical features, combined with growth in the Brewster area,
suggest that continued capital investment in the airport will be well justified.
