MAKING AN IMPACT OF EXCELLENCE ON OUR COMMUNITY
In 2011, a diverse group of local people came together and dreamed of a center that could serve as the hub of activities for our community.
Over the next four years that dream culminated in the Grand Opening of the Beaverton Activity Center on October 17, 2015.
The following year, we met with success beyond our wildest dreams – the City of Beaverton nominated the BAC for Michigan Municipal League’s statewide “Community Excellence Award,” and we won! Our success is due in no small part to ongoing efforts and partnerships with the Beaverton Branch of the Gladwin County District Library, MidMichigan Health, Mid-Michigan Community Action Agency, Beaverton Rural Schools and, of course, our treasured Volunteers and enthusiastic participants of all ages.
We appreciate your continued support and hope that you’ve found great joy in the use of the Beaverton Activity Center, and in knowing that this community gem has been revitalized, will be kept useful and vibrant, and will continue to grow for future generations to enjoy.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
We look forward to many more successful years so we have established an endowed fund to provide support for improvements and building maintenance projects. For example, in the first year of operation, we held many gym events and stage performances that we know could have been enhanced with an upgrade to the speaker system, the installation of sound-absorbing panels and improved stage lighting.
We respectfully ask you to consider the Beaverton Activity Center in your annual giving of outright cash gifts, memorial gifts honoring friends and loved ones, and long-term planned giving.
