The Ester Community Association was founded in 1941 to enhance and simplify the lives of Ester-area residents, and to help them work together for common goals. It has been a forum for cooperation and debate within our community, 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 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. It was recognized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization March 2017.
