BRUSH PRAIRIE — Rocksolid Community Teen Center replaced their 16-year-old sign with the help of South Pacific Café owners and customers.
The restaurant has supported Rocksolid in numerous ways over the last few years. One of those projects has been lunch club. Every Wednesday during the school year, the restaurant donates $1 from every lunch item ordered to Rocksolid.
Matthew Seise, one of the owners of South Pacific Cafe, drives by the center daily and noticed the sign needed replaced. Seise told Marcy Sprecher, executive director at Rocksolid, “we need to get you a new sign.’’
It was decided to use the lunch club funds to do so. Lunch club continues to the end of the school year on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. Funds raised will continue to support programs for the youth at the center. South Pacific Café is located at 15 East Main Street, Battle Ground.
“After 16 years our sign was in great need of replacement. We are very thankful to South Pacific Café’s owners and guests who help us raise funds for this need and others throughout the school year,” Sprecher said.
