Supporter Spotlight

Gary Goby cares. He cares about our past, our present and our future. He cares about people and history and Albany. He points out that nothing lasts without a strong foundation; buildings don’t stand firm and people don’t survive life’s challenges. Last year Gary Goby donated a significant amount of money to ensure the Cumberland Community Events Center would have a strong foundation to support it for many years to come!

You can see the sad state of the outside; its current condition seems worse than before the move. This diamond in the rough badly needs attention to restore it to its original condition. Then it will be a lovely addition to the neighborhood again. 

Watch the progress & keep in mind that it all takes money to make this happen. Your donation will help restore beauty to this grand historic building.

Our Mission

To preserve Albany's heritage by restoring Albany's Cumberland church building

and to promote the social well-being of the community by re-purposing it as a community events center.
