Who We Are
The Clear Lake Area Community Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which operates in the former high school building in Clear Lake, Wisconsin.
This historic building was constructed in 1922. It is connected to the Clear Lake Area Historical Museum building, which was erected in 1912, and is the original Clear Lake school building.
When the Clear Lake school district completed construction of a new high school building in 1997, the former school building was saved from demolition by a group of community-minded citizens who formed Clear Lake Area Community Center, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, in 1999, and assumed ownership of the building from the Ministerial Association.
As the CLACC, the building has served as an incubator for numerous local, start-up, small business ventures. In addition, it has provided a meeting place for local clubs and groups, private and public community gatherings, and much more.
Namely, CLACC hosts Clear Lake's Community Theater, the local newspaper: The Clear Lake Chronicle, Lifeline food pantry, and the Old School Thrift Shop, to name a few.
CLACC is run by a committee of volunteers.
Board of Directors
CLACC is governed by a board of directors who oversee the building's daily operation, and meet monthly, in the CLACC office, on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
