Church set to break ground
on community center-clinic
A groundbreaking and dedication ceremony for the new Crossings Community Center and Clinic will be from 2 to 2:30 p.m. Sunday at 10255 N Pennsylvania. The event will include representatives from the community center and clinic, as well as Crossings, Butterfield Foundation, Delta Dental and other supporters. A grant from the Butterfield Foundation in recognition of the care provided by the clinic opened the doors to the construction of a new building for the community center and clinic — and launched the One Capital Campaign at Crossings to raise the additional funds needed for the project.
