We invite you to participate!

The Historic Chinook School stands as a living monument to our community’s love of history and those who have gone before, as well as its respect for significant local architecture. Built in 1921 and 1924, the gymnasium and the school building, respectively, are continuing a century later to open their doors to those who enjoy gathering in beautiful historic spaces.

FOCS is now offering volunteer opportunities. “We are open for meetings, parties, weddings, sport events, and other community events, said President Karen Leu. “However, we’re doing it all with volunteers. If you have a few hours a month to join us in continuing the work of Friends of Chinook School and sustaining these valued community buildings, please contact us via email at info@chinookeventcenter.com. Thank you.”

Volunteer your time and talents!

To sign up for all sorts of jobs, short-term or long, small or large, join us at a FOCS board meeting the 3rd Monday of each month or call one of the board members listed on this website.  And, of course, you can always call the office at 360-244-FOCS.

FOCS always needs volunteers interested in joining our efforts to maintain and operate this terrific facility. There are opportunities to help with work on the grounds, work on displays for the History Room, do building maintenance, assistance with ideas and updates to our communications, work on fundraisers and more.

We value you and all efforts you may share.
