Wildfire comes to the National Parks, Sept. 2021
There is a wildfire, known as KNP, burning in our area. The last I knew It was something like 8 miles from Badger where our Sequoia Community Center is located. However as of noon today Eshom has been given an evacuation warning, and Eshom is very close to the Center. Here is a link to the evacuation warning: https://www.facebook.com/367515689986136/posts/6080981715306143/
Our five-member Board is actively working and communicating with the people and entities in this area to do everything we can to inform and help people protect themselves and their properties in the area. Yesterday, Sept. 21, we attended an informational meeting put on by the firefighting team that is working to control the fire. To read notes from this meeting click on this button:
We also want to let local people know that they can order Large Address Markers--glow in the dark!--from the Fire Safe Council in Three Rivers. Only $25. Click this pink button to access that order form is the link to order those markers. Order it by Sept. 30!

Welcome to the Sequoia Community Center website! We are happy to tell you about all the new activities happening in the fall of 2021. We have many activities planned for September and October, however we have to put many of them on hold because of the fire that has reached just east of Badger. We will continue food delivery services (Food Link and Abe-El), the Bookmobile and the NA meetings. The rest will be paused until October 15 when we are hoping to be more able to focus on other things. Quick updates will be on our Facebook page. You can also call Sulfiati Harris at 559-336-9362 if you need more information.
How to find out about activities at the Center: The signboard in front of the Center has a list of everything happening in September, and will be updated at the beginning of every month. Our newsletter, The Gazette, will be in a lucite pocket under the event board. It is published as necessary. There will be a list of events in the other pocket at the beginning of every month that does not have a new issue of the Gazette. The Gazette and/or list of events will also be posted on the website on the second tab.
We have a Sequoia Community Center Facebook page, which Joni Jordan updates throughout the week. This is a great way to find out the latest news.
The website will be updated to give details and latest information the posted events. You can find this information on the Events or Classes tab on the website.

These photos show what the site has to offer and also photos taken during some of the classes and events that have happened in the last few years.
The Sequoia Community Center is a Non-Profit 501©(3) on the site of the former Sierra School at 50151 Whitaker Forest Road, Badger CA 93603. A school has been on this site for over 100 years in one form or another and now the current building and grounds are transformed into a community center serving the local communities of Badger, Miramonte and Pinehurst. The school is owned by the Cutler-Orosi Joint Unified School District which is generously allowing us to use the premises for only $1 a month, with the understanding that it is run by a non-profit organization that organizes activities that educate and provide services that benefit the entire community
