Mission Statement

Our VISION is to establish 19 Carter as a community gathering place with expanded weekend and evening hours. People of all ages will be able to drop in throughout the day and evening to enjoy comfortable reading chairs, quiet spaces, games and puzzles, plus free internet.
Finishing the Main Floor will allow us to exhibit works by artists and craftspeople, showcase local products and history, offer live music in the evenings and provide a spacious bulletin board for all area events.
The Ground Floor will be used for morning toddler playgroups, for teens after school, and craft/art classes evenings and weekends.
Once the Main Floor is finished, 19 Carter will fully realize its vision to be a place to gather and connect with friends and neighbors, to support local business and delight in our community!

BIO

Evelyn Dueck began her working life as a professional violinist in Boston. She shifted into music administration in the 1990s working as the Manager of the Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra of Boston and then as the Executive Director of Indian Hill Music in Littleton. Over the past 15 years she has taken a lead role in revitalizing two historic buildings in Berlin's town center – the 1870 Town Hall and the “Old Methodist Church".

Owned by the town and managed by an advisory board, Berlin's 1870 Town Hall now holds 750 events per year attended by more than 10,000 people. Evelyn was instrumental in developing all policies and procedures for both public and private events, and still works closely as a liaison between the building manager and town officials. Building on the success of the 1870 Town Hall, she gathered a group of neighbors to form a non-profit organization, 19 Carter, to buy and restore the “Old Methodist Church" with a vision to make it open to the greater community on a daily basis.

Currently the Board Chair and Project Manager of 19 Carter, Evelyn oversees all fundraising and manages the construction activity with the help of many experienced builders and professionals. In addition, she supervises the volunteers who staff the building. While the main floor restoration is in its final phase, the lower level of the building has been open for community use since January 2015. The project's target completion date is summer 2017.
