The Kleeman Center, 166 Cunningham Lane, will be closed January 12th-18th and the Burt-Cobb Center, 1101 Franklin Street, will be closed February 9th-15th. Centers will return to their normal operating hours the Monday following their annual maintenance period.
Each Center will be receiving paint touchups and upgrades to their tile flooring. Be sure to check out the completed project once each center reopens! Community Center IDs are valid at all three community centers, so feel free to stop by the other two centers during annual maintenance times.
