The month of February flew by with a number of fun events here and a lot of work making the Jensen Community Center a wonderful and inviting place. We are so thankful for all the generous people in our community who help us make it all happen.
We have completed the updating of our large Community Room. Thank you to Mike Gaul, Lon Gunderson, Todd Hornick and our very own Chris Pehoski for tearing down wallpaper, putting up bead board, spraying the texture, and repainting the entire room. And thanks again to Jen Haas for her help in picking out paint colors. The room looks fabulous!
Thank you to our volunteers who helped with our Polka dance with Richie Yurkovich on Saturday, February 8, which included Dale Dose, Rachel Wright and Keith LaBarre, Sandra Lynne Schmutzler, Tammy Hunter, Norman Groshekm, and Jeff Konkol.
Our free movie in February was The Addams Family. Thank you to Ashley Bannach and her kids for helping us sell popcorn. Mark your calendars for the next free movies on March 15: Frozen II and April 5: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.
