The Ester Community Association was founded in 1941 to enhance the lives of Ester-area residents, and to help them work together for common goals. It was recognized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization March 2017.
The ECA has been a forum for cooperation and debate within Ester, served as a social organization and the mechanism through which projects are undertaken to enhance the community. It maintains a local meeting venue/community hall, and has built, maintained and improved the Ester Community Park. It currently is in the process of purchasing the park.
The ECA supports and often works in cooperation with other groups. While the ECA was incorporated in 1981, it remained a loose-knit social organization, taking on political and fiscal aspects of the community as necessary, for many decades until formal recognition in 2017.
Its flag, with the motto “Mino Ergo Bibo” (I mine, therefore I drink) has been to both the South Pole and the North Pole, and the photos to prove it are posted at the local watering hole.
