Residents of the Tomorrow River community have long recognized the uniqueness of this area. One of the qualities that gives this area its special charm is its commitment to community life. As early as the turn of the century, residents recognized the need to provide a facility that would promote and enhance community life. By 1902, this vision was realized with the opening of the Amherst Opera House. For over a half century, area residents gathered in the Opera House for dances, holiday celebrations, political forums, club meetings, talent shows, venison feeds, and fine art performances.

This void was again filled in 1987, with the construction and completion of the Lettie W. Jensen Community Center. Since then, area residents have been well-served by a community center made possible by the generous endowment of the family of Lettie W. Jensen, a one-time resident who knew the pleasures of community life here. Area senior citizen and youth groups, civic organizations, and service clubs have all enjoyed the comfort and convenience of this facility. Musical concerts, recitals, community theatre, fine arts activities, and festivals have all found a home in the Jensen Center. Please call for a quote on your upcoming event!
