Sixty years ago the "big red building" on the banks of the McKenzie River was built by local residents as a place to gather for fun, learning, and celebration.
Today, the Upper McKenzie Community Center serves as a vibrant community gathering space, emergency relief center and versatile community resource hub. The organization and events are run by volunteers, and funded by Membership, donations, and rentals.
The UMCC is a "Community Center for Gatherings and Emergency Relief". The social-distancing requirements needed to deal with COVID-19 have reduced our ability to have large events.
Over the past 6 decades events here have created a "community memory." If you want share your story about events of the past please send it to us by email. We hope to be able to meet together again soon!
