A board meeting of the Minnora Community Center has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday at the center, according to President Wanda Richards.

The Calhoun Commission has extended an offer to the board to assist in settling a two-year-old conflict between their members and others in the community over control of the center.

The Commission' resolution reads:

July 26, 2001

To Wanda Richards, President of Minnora Community Center and all members of the Board of Directors:

We, the members of the Calhoun Commission, express to each of you our serious concerns regarding the continued crisis over the management of the Minnora Community Center, more particularly what could be the collapse of the center and the vital services it is providing to southern Calhoun. The conflict, unfortunately, has continued for over two years.

The Calhoun Commission has given its support and endorsement to several of the established programs and services, and shares the vision of what the center could mean to the citizens of the area in the future. The re-establishment of the center after closure, would be very unlikely.

We, the Commission, are grateful to each of you for your vision in starting the center, and the hard and difficult work it has taken to maintain its operation.

The Commission has no legal recourse since the property has been leased to your board for a period of 99 years, but extend to you our willingness to make recommendations for its continued operation.

If your board votes to "ask the commission for help," we will make one or more recommendations, solely based on saving the center and would expect your board to consider such recommendations seriously.

We respectfully request your consideration of this proposal, and would hope to hear from you shortly, the matter being placed on the agenda.

Sincerely,

Bob Weaver, President of the Commission
Larry McCallister, Commissioner
David Barr, Commissioner
