What story? The whole area seems unkept and abandoned. I thought it was up for sale? (Correct me if I'm wrong!) It looks like it is in need of repairs etc., etc. (Noting like the images here!) Will post a photo if I get by there again sometime!

The building looks like it needs to be demolished (for several years now). And I think it was recently sold. TO ME IT SEEMS this was never a good place in the past recent years . My opinion and HOPE is they will be audited ASAP! I would never again volunteer any of my time towards promoting their agenda of so called community.....to me, in recent past (5) years it seems a farce and fraud. IT NEEDS A CLEAN WEEP! ZERO STAR RATING. But it made me choose at least one. So (1) star UNDER DURRESS

In addition to being a board member, I am also the volunteer coordinator of the adult quilting group. Over the past 15 years I have seen many women learn to quilt, but more importantly, form friendships and support groups. They do charity work for the kids at Dunbar, make raffle quilts to help with fund raising, and encourage each other in personal growth.

The Dunbar Community center has a long history in Butler and has been increasing its impact and visibility in recent years. The center provides children with important support in areas of school work, recreation and nutrition. The needs are great in this community and Dunbar is stepping up to meet them. And the more the community takes notice and supports the community center, the more children (and families) will be helped.

I have been involved with the Center for two years now as a volunteer and adviser to the Board of Directors.

The residents of the City of Butler and the Butler Area School District are very fortunate to have the Dunbar Community Center in their community. They provide nutritional snacks and meals to the area children as well as educational tutoring and extracurricular activities / sporting activities that many of these children would otherwise not be exposed to but for their efforts.
