It was renamed in 1999 in honor of longtime volunteer Marion Gerrish. She helped start the thrift shop and also was an original board member.
Garvin said the building is a community gem that is used by more than 160 groups. Room are also rented out for private functions.
Work at the center is a constant project, Garvin said. The building receives no town money, but relies on its thrift shop proceeds and other donations and support.
Upcoming projects include updating exterior lighting at the center.
