MCRC Purpose

The McCleary Civic Renewal Council is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides cultural programs and activities for the community to participate in and attract tourists to the city.

We are community-based and work in partnership with other community organizations to revive the city into a prominent destination for tourism and activities.


Looking for a way to get involved? We are growing and need more input and support from community members so we will be forming committees to help guide and coordinate our activities. Stay tuned for more information...

The Origin of our Logo

In 2017, the city of McCleary convened a steering committee to inform what became the Economic Development Comprehensive Plan.

A subgroup formed to brainstorm ways to better promote the city, and they decided a logo was needed. A designer turned their ideas into an image, and the Outdoors Await Down Highway 8 logo was born.

The group later formed the McCleary Civic Renewal Council and the sale of apparel and stickers with our logo is used to support our work. Thank you to everyone who has purchased a shirt to proudly promote our city.

Check out the McCleary promo video.

A huge thank you to Samantha Riley Sego for creating it!


The MCRC was established in 2018 and started as a spin-off from the City of McCleary Economic Development Steering Committee. Committee Board members served on the Steering Committee and were inspired to work together to focus on bringing new things to do to town and building up existing ones so they formed the MCRC.



The McCleary Civic Renewal Council is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors.
