TranscriptThe benefits derived from the Carver Community Center
might be better understood if we give a brief statement relative
to its beginning. The Center was organized when a definite need
for recreation facilities arose during the war. It operated as
a Federal Agency for the Negro soldier as long as that need was
evident. At the conclusion of the war the people of vision saw
this need for the civilians of Galesburg, so t hat the Center was
continued to serve primarily the Negroes of the City. Needless
to say the Center definitely serves every race, color and creed
of the city. Our program though in its infancy makes an effort
to meet the needs of the people from infacy through old age.
Our story hour is designed especially for children from four
to nine years of age. The program will be set up to include
many activities for the children in that age bracket. In for
the boys and girls from nine through thirteen. The teenagers
have their various classes in crafts, music , drama , social
activities and their teenage council. The adults have about
the same only on a different level.
