It seems like every year around this time the St. Michaels Community Center has to go through the rather difficult exercise of reminding the community they serve what they do when seeking annual support. This is not because they do so little but because every year this unique nonprofit helps so many in so many different ways that it is hard to keep it all straight.
For twelve months a year, the Community Center does dozens of programs for kids, for families, for seniors and those seeking food. They also run the community garden, a music program, and sponsor town public concerts. Add free dinners at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, and you get a better picture of the depth and range of this charity.
The Spy caught up with the St. Michaels Community Center director Trish Payne, and youth program director Pam Phillips to talk about these programs, hear about the organization’s building plans, and the need for a few angels in town to make that happen.
