We need information. The old Lucerne grade school building on Country Club Drive is set up to support the citizens of Lucerne as a Senior Center. This venerable building was built circa 1930 and received its first students a couple of years later. The local School District operated the building until it became obsolete and declared the building surplus. They gave it away many years later to operate as a community center to avoid ongoing upkeep. The present operators are a 501(c)3 Benefit Corporation 100% composed of hard working volunteers.
