Did You Know #14

DID YOU KNOW, in 1973 the church participated, along with the campus ministry and others, in founding La Salida, a drug rehabilitation center (in the Malouf Building on Bridge Street). On Aug. 5, 1973, the new building of the Las Vegas Alcoholism Center, next door to the historic Presbyterian Mission Community Center on Socorro St., was dedicated and renamed the Plagge Memorial Center, in memory of the Rev. Robert Plagge, former pastor. Construction of the building was made possible by funds from the Presbyterian Board of Missions. The building was partly purchased and partly leased from our church. (Source Las Vegas Optic)
