Thank you to the following organizations and individuals that have given of their time, talent and treasure to provide relief to those affected by the flood waters in Geneva and surrounding areas.
The idea to use the Rural Heritage Center as a hub for different relief teams to serve the community came from Joy Recicar, who currently serves as the Vice President on the board at the Rural Heritage Center. She has been instrumental in coordinating relief efforts and continues to serve alongside her family and other volunteers by keeping the Center open each day to those in need.

Do you love the Rural Heritage Center?
Help Preserve our Historic Building by Donating Today! See below for details.
We surely hope so because it belongs to you, me and ALL OF US. The building has character and great usefulness but to use a rural term, "It is a bit long-in-the-tooth". In 2024 it will celebrate 100 years "young".
All of us who serve gratis on the Board of Directors do it because we consider it to be a priceless community jewel where people can gather to worship, learn and celebrate.
As a vintage building, it does have serious needs and unfortunately they cost money. Please consider a donation to help us keep it up and running. We are a 501c3 organization so all donations are 100% tax deductible.
As you can see there are LOTS OF GOOD REASONS to consider a donation to our Rural Heritage Center.
PLEASE JOIN US . WE TRULY NEED YOU !!!!!
