The Community Center is the heart of Darrington activities. The DCC, which houses a gym, meeting room and kitchen, was built 62 years ago to serve the societal needs of people living in a remote area of Washington State. At the time the gym was built high school basketball was a mainstay in the logging community of Darrington and today remains the town’s primary athletic venue. The meeting room and kitchen are rented for weddings, baby/bridal showers, reunions, potlucks, tribal meetings and other gatherings. The DCC offers the kitchen and meeting rooms to area residents for funeral dinners and memorial gatherings upon request. It is also a designated Red Cross shelter in the event of an emergency.
The building is owned by the Town of Darrington and managed by a Board of Trustees who meet quarterly. Board meetings are open to the public, check with Darrington City Hall at (360) 435-1131 for the date of the next Community Center Board meeting.
