The Murphys Community Club is a non-profit volunteer organization created in 1948. The Preamble states, “We pledge ourselves to do everything in our power to improve the community of Murphys.” The MCC’s major responsibility is to operate and maintain Murphys Park. Murphys Park is not a public park, but a park provided for the public by the Murphys Community Club through membership, donations, park use fees and special events.
The MCC Board of Directors meets monthly, on the second Tuesday of each month. Town Hall Meetings and Programs are scheduled each quarter at the Native Daughters Hall on Main Street in Murphys. Everyone is welcome to attend.
