Story Cortez Restores an Essential Community Gathering Space

Nearly a quarter century after it first opened, the Lewis-Arriola Community Center needed a little love to remain an essential community asset. With a little help from the LOR and others, the volunteer-run gathering space is ready for the next generation of celebrants.

Story Cortez’s Southside Garden Grows Greens and Community

The new community garden's 11 plots, supported with funding from LOR, will be ready for planting this spring.
