While MCC will be open to limited public access, activities and programs remain on hold until further notice. The Old Firehouse Center will remain closed. As soon as we can confirm what we can offer we will post the information on our website, in our weekly e-news blasts, and on our social media sites (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter).

Our goal is to keep you informed and safe as we navigate how to best ease into program offerings.
