What was formerly a Lucas nightclub will shortly be turned into a community center for all ages - but not without a little help. Members of the Lucas community banded together to make a place that fits everyone's needs.

"This was the old Liquids nightclub," said David Culler, treasurer for the Lucas Community Center. "We're hoping to have a used clothing facility, after-school programs for the kids, as well as other community services."

Once renovated, the building will also serve as a food pantry as well as a hall for meetings, parties, and other events. To help raise funds for the center, several events were held, including a car show, a silent auction, a raffle, an ice cream social, and more.
