For over 61 years the Penacook Community Center has provided exceptional programs and affordable services to the residents of Boscawen, Canterbury, Concord, Loudon, Penacook, Salisbury and Webster.

The Penacook Community Center is truly a cornerstone of this immediate region and plays a critical role in providing safe, healthy and constructive opportunities for physical, social and emotional well-being, as well as educational and recreational enhancement.

We are an active participant in promoting a community where children, teens, adults and seniors are valued and are provided with opportunities for lifelong learning, health, safety, independence, happiness and personal success.

PCC was honored to be highlighted in the Endowment for Health’s annual report “Kids and seniors connect at the Penacook Community Center, an exemplary example of programming that brings a community together across the generations.”

Penacook Community Center Welcomes New Executive Director

The Penacook Community Center (PCC) Board of Directors is pleased to announce and welcome its new Executive Director Michelle Kolias, of Weare, NH. Kolias will be responsible for overseeing the direction and development of all of PCC’s programs and staff, as well as its involvement in the local community.

“We hired Michelle based on her qualifications and ability to lead the vision of PCC forward to its next level,” said Rick Jaques, President of PCC’s Board of Directors. “We are pleased that this will be such a great fit to the present and future accomplishments of PCC.”

Kolias has a master’s degree in psychology and a degree in human services and early childhood education. She brings to PCC extensive experience leading and supervising various childcare programs in multiple settings, including owning her own center in Hampstead, New Hampshire. She has also managed family resource centers and provided family counseling.

“I am passionate about the mission of PCC,” said Kolias, “and I look forward to working with the Board of Directors and staff as we move forward in 2017.”

Kolias started at PCC on December 27th. The PCC Board of Directors will host various events at Penacook Community Center over the coming months to give PCC parents, senior citizens, and other community members the opportunity to get to know her.

PCC offers childcare programs for children from the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years old, summer camps for children ages 6 – 12, and programs for seniors. For more information visit or call (603) 753-9700.
