MAGALIA, Calif. – Tri Counties Bank presented the Magalia Community Park with a $10,000 grant to support their efforts to develop a Magalia Community Center.

The new non-profit organization applied for the grant in hopes of getting a public meeting space in Magalia.

This new community center can be used to private and community events for all residents in Magalia and the Upper Ridge, according to Magalia Community Park.

Magalia Community Park Board Member, Dave Willoughby says they are receiving terrific support from business and the community.

“This $10K grant from Tri Counties is the initial funding we need to develop a place of our own in Magalia,” Willoughby says.

Fellow board member, Laurie McBride says this grant will help build what was destroyed in the Camp Fire.

“We believe that creating a true community center, and ultimately a community park, is an important part of rebuilding what we lost in the Camp Fire. And we’re so thankful for the support we receive,” McBride says.

The actual location of the community center is still be negotiated.
