Bryon Center needs community to keep doors open


Janet Bryant, the Rose Marie Bryon Center’s director, said community’s help is needed to keep the doors open.

130815_dt_focus03The first Rose Marie Bryon Bi-Annual Alumni Reunion Dinner Dance/Silent Auction will be held Friday, Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Midtown Cultural and Educational Center, 925 George W. Engram Blvd., Daytona Beach.

“Since July 2010, the center has not received any government or grant funding. The center is solely operated by volunteers and minimal private donations,” Bryant said.

The Rose Marie Bryon Movement has served the community since Oct. 31, 1946. The mission of the center is to provide a safe, Christian-based environment, along with educational opportunities and the development of positive self-esteem for at-risk youth.

“Our communitywide celebration seeks to raise funds for the center, which is the oldest after-school program in the Daytona Beach area. This is an appeal to you for support,” Bryant stated.
