Find Your Community Here
Elkton is a vibrant rural community filled with people who have a passion for art, history, outdoor activities and food! And ECEC is the perfect place to meet people who share your interests or to learn a new skill. We host themed community dinners and are the host site for a weekly lunch for seniors. Seasonal workshops and guest speakers offer information on everything from backyard butterfly habitats to the history of the Umpqua River Valley. Volunteering is another great way to connect with people or explore a new interest. ECEC is also home to a wide range of community groups, from fiber artists to book clubs.
