The Chicken BBQ

During the Lewisburg Veterans Day Fireworks Display each year, we offer a chicken BBQ fundraising event. The meal includes a 1/4 piece of chicken, roll with butter, chips, baked beans, and a drink. Order your tickets early to guarantee your meals!

Rock-N-Read-Athon

Beginning at 3pm on the first Friday in December (in conjunction with the Late Night Shoppers event in Lewisburg), we have a 24-hour reading marathon to promote literacy and raise funds for the Center’s programs. Every 15 minutes a new participant takes over the rocking chair and reads their favorite stories while earning their pre-established pledge dollars. Traditionally, this event is held in a downtown store front.

Party Rentals

Our fully equipped facility is ready for your birthday, anniversary, or company party. A pool table, foosball table, large screen television, gymnasium with balls and hula hoops, and a full-service kitchen are at your disposal for only $100 for 4 hours and $25 for each hour thereafter. Please call us at (570) 524-5000 to book your next event, and spare your house!
