Community center in Knox holds events

By Staff | Apr 7, 2017

What used to be the American Legion in Knox is now a place for the Knox community to use to hold events such as weddings, suppers, graduations, family gatherings, and more.

The community center is a non-profit center, open to anyone who wishes to use it.

The garage portion of the center is shared with the Knox Fire Department to store fire trucks and equipment.

The Knox Community Center plans were initiated by the late mayor Lloyd Marchus and the former Knox City Auditor Pat Robbins. They wanted a place for the growing Knox community, a place to be proud of.

Thanks to the hard work and donations of the amazing people in the community, Knox now has a great building to help put the city back on the map.

There will be a Spring Supper held at the community center Saturday, April 8 from 6 p.m. until gone. The menu includes a roast beef dinner, complete with mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, salad, coffee and goodies.

The supper is a free will offering to help with future events.

The community center is run on donations, which is why fundraisers like the Spring Supper and last month’s Burger Night are important.

“It takes money to keep things going,” Jody Stone said. “We’re trying to do these fundraisers to raise money and make people aware that [the center] is available.”

The Burger Night committee thanks all who came out to support.

The Knox Community Center is located on Main St. in Knox, ND. Anyone interested in using the space can contact Stone at 701-771-7231.
