Endowment Center feature in The Monitor

An 80-acre park and community center was formally dedicated this week for the communities of San Carlos and La Blanca.

The new state-of-the-art 6,000-square-foot multipurpose Endowment Center facility and Memorial Park has been in the works for several years. County Precinct 4 designed it as a place for residents in the surrounding communities of San Carlos, La Blanca, Edcouch, Elsa, Monte Alto and Hargill to gather for meetings and activities for all ages.

“We have a center that services a population base of more than 8,000 people in this area,” Precinct 4 Commissioner Joseph Palacios said. “That’s not in an incorporated area; there is no city services, no city hall. This is their place, this is their center.”
