Community center foundation names new director of activities

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

The Eureka Springs Community Center has unanimously selected Catherine Luna as the director of activities at the community center.

“The board is thrilled to welcome Luna to the project and to have someone with her credentials, education and background involved in the initial stages of program design and implementation,” the foundation said in a news release.

Luna moved to Eureka Springs in 2016 from Austin, Texas, and has had years of experience in nonprofit management, event and program planning, and recreational fitness and educational programming.

“Our hiring committee was so impressed with the quality of all the finalists. It was not an easy decision, but we could not have asked for a more perfect fit for our evolving community center project than Catherine,” said Diane Murphy, chairperson of the foundation. “We are within weeks of being ready for membership and programming.”

Murphy continued, “Catherine will be working with local citizen groups to help make some very important decisions concerning activities and schedules. To say we are excited about all this is a real understatement. I can’t believe we have come this far this fast. The community has been incredible in helping us reach this lift-off landmark.”

Luna said she’s excited about her new job.

“The opening of the community center makes a major milestone for our vibrant community, and I am excited to be part of making this dream a reality,” Luna said.

Luna begins working in April, with opening day and planned activities to be announced very soon. For more information about the Eureka Springs Community Center Foundation, visit
