Dunbar Community Center celebrates 100 years of service

AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – The Dunbar Community Center of Greater Springfield celebrated 100 years of service on Friday night.

The event was held at Chez Joseph in Agawam. Guests were treated to food, raffles and even a slideshow of photos from when it first opened.

Organizers say it was a great way to honor the center, and all the great things it’s done for the community over the past century.

Executive Director Janice Watson told 22News, “Oh my goodness, I think it brings the community together, and it really embodies the history that we have in the city of Springfield, and so bringing all these folks around the history, it’s amazing.”

Organizers say they were excited to have such a great turnout. They told 22News they look forward to many more years of service here in western Massachusetts.
