The Elaine Community Center, a collaborative of three local non-profits, was dedicated on New Year's Day.  The first pool tournament winner was Elaine resident LaCora White, a sophomore at UAPB. 

The next major event is the first monthly luncheon for area seniors on Feb. 9. 

"We plan to have activities, learning experiences, and recreation for all ages," Elaine Community Center Director James White said   "Habitat's office full of free used books is about ready. A new second-hand clothing distribution space is also about ready and sports and activities are going on now in areas that once housed elementary school classes," he added.
