Plans and Dreams for a Center

Last year we acquired a building that will, one day, be a physical location for the Learning Center, our Ahunika'. We just learned from our architect that plans are complete and will be submitted to the City of Banning next week! The building requires major remodeling to meet our needs, and it will be expensive. It will include a gathering hall for major events, a reference library and archive, a recording studio for recording music and oral histories, a classroom, a children's center, a botanical garden featuring our native plants, and more. We look forward to what we'll be able to do once we have this wonderful space. It is located in downtown Banning in the Center of the Arts District, the Center of town. From this Center we'll reach out to the entire southern California community! Now, all we have to do is raise the money to accomplish it. - JS
