November is Membership Drive Month

Since 1949, the Topanga Community Center has served generations of Topangans. The Center does not receive tax income like other community centers, because it is a privately owned non-profit organization.  We depend 100% on the generosity of our members and our fundraising  income to keep our lights on and doors open. We encourage each canyon resident to become a member: Join or renew to be part of this community hub of the canyon! Membership is tax deductible and comes with many benefits.

The Center is the home of the Community House, a gem of Topanga since construction began on it in 1952.  (See the great article about TCC history in the Messenger, November 3, 2017) Built by Topanga residents and maintained in the same spirit, the Community Center provides resources for canyon residents and friends of all ages. This is our promotion theme for our membership drive:

This is the house Topanga built. It’s your house, too.

What does membership get you? You become a part of this legacy of Topanga! You receive discounted tickets to our main fundraising events, from Topanga Days, Reggae on the Mountain, Square Dances, Disco Dances and the Swap Meet. With a children’s organic garden, ball field, playground, walking path and more, the 12 acres of property offers something for everyone.

Being part of TCC qualifies you to vote for changes, programs or for board members. Join us once a month on 2nd Thursday evenings for our General Meetings. Have a voice and a say in what we do.

There’s no better time to join!

Oct. 15, 4 – 7 p.m. – Sunday/Funday Concert & Food Trucks

The Topanga Community Center has received a grant from Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and the LA County Arts Commission to host a free Sunday Funday concert for our community on October 15 from 4 to 7pm.

Making their first appearance on the TCC stage, the Urban Renewal Project is a 12-piece LA-based band that uses the instruments of a bygone era to create a signature sound, blurring the boundaries between styles like soul, jazz and hip-hop. The group performs upbeat originals and fresh interpretations of everything from jazz standards to recent hits. They’ve toured nationally from Rockwood Music Hall to the San Jose Jazz Summerfest, and their recordings have received airplay on influential radio stations across the country, including KCRW-Santa Monica and WDCB-Chicago.

Food trucks will be on-hand and food and beverages will be available for purchase. This event is sponsored by Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and the Topanga Community Center.
