CCI and Storey County Community Celebrates Completion of Community Center with Open House Event!
Please join CCI, supporters, volunteers, and the Storey County community as we celebrate the completion of the Storey County Youth and Community Resource Center!
CCI is proud to announce our Open House event to be held at the Center at 175 Carson Street in Virginia City on Friday, June 1st from 5-7pm. Attendees will be able to tour the greatly expanded spaces and nibble on root beer floats as well as cheese and wine. A short program will also be held.
The additional space will showcase the rebirth of the Storey County Library which now has unobstructed 100+ mile views for 180 degrees, and has the latest in high-tech computers available for use by the public. As well, attendees will be able to walk through the much bigger youth multipurpose space that is big enough for full-court volleyball games as well as dramatic and musical performances. Other highlights include a dedicated kitchen with ability to serve food through a pass-through window outside, an elevator, and other amenities.
“This literally could not have happened without the hands of many who believed in what we were trying to do,” said Erik Schoen, CCI Executive Director. A partial list of such supporters include the Pennington Foundation, the Crowley Foundation, the Hart Foundation, Steven Nightingale, the NV Energy Foundation, the EL Cord Foundation, Barrick, the Terry Lee Wells Foundation, the Hawkins Foundation, the John Ben Snow Foundation, Storey County, Nancy Cummings and Tammy Westergard with the State Library, Amy Geddes with the Lyon County Library, Nevada Health Centers, and the project architect Darrin Berger. “This list,” added development director Shaun Griffin, “does not include the many, many more silent hands that have contributed to the dream over the years.”
