CENTER JENSEN Donate In the heart of central Wisconsin COMMUNITY

After 35 years of service to our community, the Jensen Center is excited to announce our 3Stage Expansion Project.

With steady growth, increased participation in programs, events and rentals, the Center is ready to expand!

The plan includes 3 parts: an outdoor terrace connected to the large community room, a backstage bump-out and a necessary update to the fire protection and sprinkler system.
