The Centennial Cultural Center, Inc. exists to stimulate, encourage, nurture, promote and produce good culture and fine arts in LaSalle Parish, and when possible the social and economic environment of the area – this is the center’s mission statement, but they need us to uphold it. After serving the parish for over a decade, the CCC in Olla is in need of funding to remain open. “The center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) funded by state grants, donations and fundraisers,” Former CCC President Fern McKeithen said. “The grant money is just not there anymore. And the grants we have received have been cut in half. Our corporate support has diminished as well. Without  dditional funding, we won’t be able to keep going.”
