ZCC is holding a Dance Party on Sunday, April 7, from 4-6 pm – and you are invited! This is a benefit for ZCC, and will include the best of 80s music spun by a DJ in the neighborhood and emceed by Patrick Clark, familiar to many of you. Tickets are $25 per family; contact for more information. The Dance Party will include a silent auction, with all sorts of packages – cases of wine, gift cards to restaurants, a year of homemade pies baked just for you, even a pair of socks hand knit to feet your feet. We are still seeking donations, please let know what you can contribute. Space is limited at the event, so buy your ticket soon



Our After School Program, A.S.A.P., combines high quality childcare for children, ages 4-7, with teachers from local organizations – and it is a highly affordable, intergenerational program. Interested in volunteering or donating, or do you know of a child needing After School care? Contact Melissa at and join us at A.S.A.P.



Are you itching to get into the dirt, pull the weeds that wintered over and plant new things? Zimmerman Community Center has two gardens that might fulfill that basic urge.

n  The Northwest Community Garden is on NW 16th between Johnson and Kearney. It has five raised beds with several themes, including an English garden, plants of Oregon, and a blue and purple garden among others. Teams tend to the beds. If you’re interested, let Kris know at

n  Isobel’s Garden is a children’s space that has been moved westward to the block at 14th and Raleigh. ZCC is grateful for Hoyt Street Properties’ generosity in letting us use the space. Participants will each have a raised bed of their own. For more information, contact Kris at




We make our space available for private parties. It’s especially good for birthdays for younger children. Please contact for more information on how to make this happen.
