The formerly closed Jefferson Elementary School on B Street has been transformed by community volunteers of Eureka’s Westside Community Improvement Association (WCIA). The Jefferson Project has already completed a playground area with new equipment and has opened the building to many organizations for meetings and recreational activities. The excitement builds as our neighborhood shows its commitment to a clean safe neighborhood full of activities for all ages, from gardening and cooking to dance and drumming, improving oneself an learning new skills. Join us with your ideas, projects and energy!
