Thank You to our Volunteers!!
Your 800+ Volunteer Hours in 2019 have not gone unnoticed!
We are all in a time of uncertainty and unpredictability. The COVID-19 has changed everyone's lives in one aspect or another. We want to remind you all, while we can't hold events or classes in the Community Center, the Board is still here for the community. We will be using our Face Book page, website, e-mail, and periodic newsletters to get information to you - our neighbors, our friends, our community!
Classes and events will only resume once it is cleared by the CDC and appropriate agencies that it is safe to hold such events. With that said, our early season events are postponed for the time being. However, we are looking at this situation with an optimistic outlook. We aren't letting this open calendar time go to waste - what better time to do building maintenance than when the building is empty?!?! We hope to execute many of our exterior and interior maintenance projects, making the Church and Schoolhouse even more beautiful! If you are interested in assisting in building maintenance and repair, please contact us! Of course, the projects will be completed practicing social distancing recommendations.
Check on your neighbors while staying at a safe distance to prevent spreading the virus. Is there anything that anyone needs? Dog food, toilet paper, etc? Is there anyone with a surplus willing to share? Please help each other. The Alberton Food Bank is also be a great place for food donations. In this community, we have more resources than we know what to do with. However, we don't know who needs what without someone asking the question. For example, one of our Board Members, has access to an emergency food bank. Does anyone have an immediate food need? Alberton's Senior Center is providing grab and go lunches a couple days of the week, with a potential for delivery available.
No one is alone - we are all in this together. Do you have garden tips, craft ideas, or tips for kids and online school? Do you want to provide a virtual yoga class, aerobic workout, etc? Do you have pictures of the beautiful 9-Mile Valley that you would like to share? How can the Community Center be of service to you in the valley? We are open to ideas, and help executing those ideas...we can't do it alone. Imagination is the limit!
Send us your needs, tips, videos, pictures, and links through Facebook or our e-mail: email@example.com. Remember, no one is alone - we are strong, we are unique, we are community, we are the 9-Mile! Enjoy in all the nature of our beautiful valley, stay healthy, and keep smiling!

The Nine Mile Stark School House and the Church are maintained to benefit and serve the community. They are available to be used for religious, educational, literary, charitable and social group functions. The Nine Mile Stark School House was built in 1915 and served as the valley's school until 1949, when it was deeded to the community. In 1995, the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
