Holmen Area Community Center fundraiser kickoff Saturday

The fundraising effort is set to start for a new community center.

A kick-off celebration Saturday for the Holmen Area Club and Community Center’s fundraising campaign kickoff.

The former Festival Foods building will include spaces for the Boys and Girls Club as well as the

Holmen Area Community Center and the School District of Holmen.

Community members can learn what the center will look like at Saturday’s kickoff celebration.

When it is completed, the renovated space will provide new opportunities for all ages.

“We have a population in Holmen that is growing of healthy seniors, my age who have a lot to give, who want to share their talents and the time with young people,” said Beth Balder-Schroeder, Holmen Area Community Center board member.

The kick-off celebration starts Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Holmen High School.
