Warren Foundation to Contribute $750,000 to Community Center

The Westbrook Community Center is $750,000 richer thanks to a contribution from
the Cornelia Warren Community Association on Wednesday afternoon. According to
John Bernier, chairman of the board of the association, the organization
presented the news of the gift to Mayor Colleen Hilton, City Administrator Jerre
Bryant and Maria Dorn, director of the community center, in a meeting on
Wednesday. Bernier said it is the largest amount of money the association has
ever awarded to a single project. Bryant said the gift would be paid in three
annual installments of $250,000. The Westbrook Community Center is located in
the former junior high school building on Bridge Street.
