Meeting planned on future of Evergreen gym

From Evergreen Cultural Arts Committee:
Public Meeting: 7:00 – 8:00 pm
Wednesday, May 18
Wild Ride Brewing
332 SW 5th Street, Redmond
In 1944 the Union High School Gymnasium rose from the ashes of the original gym. For nearly seventy years, it housed the memories of our community, having served as a gym for high school, middle school and grade school students as well as a community space for all of Redmond.

For several years, the building has set empty and deteriorating, badly in need of renovation and structural updates.

The Evergreen Cultural Arts Committee is a project of the 2015-2016 Leadership Redmond class sponsored by the Redmond Chamber of Commerce and the REA. We seek to honor the building’s important contributions to Redmond’s past while creating new memories for future generations of Central Oregonians. Our mission is:

Redevelop the Evergreen School Gymnasium into a cultural arts center featuring a performing arts space, theater, gallery, classrooms, studios, and a non-profit arts incubator.

We invite you to join us for our Tip-Off meeting May 18 at Wild Ride. We will:

•    Introduce/reintroduce the community to the Gym space and its possibilities.
•    Generate creative ideas for its use as a Cultural Arts Center.
•    Form community committees to carry the project forward.

Please join us in honoring Redmond’s past while building its future.


Please feel free to share this email with anyone who might be interested. Thanks.
