Haldeman Hayes Crossing Community Center


Welcome to the Haldeman Hayes Crossing Community Center




The Hayes Crossing Gourd Festival held at Hayes Crossing in the 1980s will begin again this Fall under the name Haldeman-Hayes Crossing Community Gourd Festival. This annual festival will be held at the Haldeman Hayes Crossing Community Center.

There will be crafts and other items for sale as well as all types of gourds, pumpkins, etc.

Everyone is encouraged to raise gourds to sell and display.

Additional information will be available soon.

Please check out our calendar for additional events. 


Over the last few months members of the Haldeman Hayes Crossing Community Center Foundation Board have been talking to the good people at Gateway Area Development District and the Rowan County Judge’s Office about a project to rehabilitate the burned section of the Haldeman Community Center.  They were impressed with all of the work that has already been accomplished with local resources at the Community Center.  At this time the Gateway Area Development District is assisting with applications for USDA Rural Development, CDBG, and ARC grants.  The deadline for filing for the grants is October 3rd.

With this opportunity, the future of the Haldeman Hayes Crossing Community Center has never looked brighter.  However, we need to raise $5,000.00 to cover the costs of preliminary architectural work.  To meet this need, the Haldeman Hayes Crossing Community Center Foundation Board is asking for the community to step up and show their appreciation for the services provided thus far and for the promise that a refurbished Community Center holds for our community.  We are asking for your donations to help raise the necessary funds to get our project started.  We are a 501(c) 3 organization and all donations are tax deductible.  

For more information about donating funds or getting a receipt for your donation, please see any HHCCC Board Member or call RoseMary Johnson at 606-784-5162.

The Board of Directors at the Haldeman Hayes Crossing Community Center would like to thank MSU’s CRE, Kentucky Campus Compact (KyCC) and Learn and Serve for a generous grant.

The grant has been put to good use with the purchase of two heaters and 12 energy saving light bulbs.  While the new bulbs have been installed and are shining brightly at the Center, the heaters will be installed when the weather breaks.

The heaters will enable the Community Center to operate more often during the winter months.
