Opportunity Council Presents:

50th Anniversary Celebration

In 1965, the Opportunity Council began as a small, grassroots group working with a borrowed typewriter and furniture in a small corner in the Whatcom County Courthouse. It was a product of the Economic Opportunity Act signed by President Lynden B. Johnson in 1964 that allowed local groups, including people with low-income, to determine how to create local solutions to fight poverty in their own communities. 50 years later, the Opportunity Council is one of 1,000 Community Action Agencies nationwide. Its 200 full- and part-time employees serve nearly 20,000 people a year throughout the Pacific Northwest.

This 50-year anniversary event is an opportunity to celebrate with former Opportunity Council board members, employees, partner agencies, donors, elected officials, customers, supporters, or anyone who knows someone who has been connected to this agency over the last five decades.

This is an independent event promoted by a renter of the facility. Any comments or opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of Mount Baker Theatre.
