But the folks in charge at the center want to change all that. To that end, they want to formulate a strategic plan on how to change the programming to attract more neighbors to use it. Fill out the survey by clicking here.
What we’ve heard from several neighbors is that the grounds should be more accessible, including on the weekends, so that the public could use the space like a public park. If you think that’s a good idea, tell them!
But mostly, they want to know what kind of classes, events or workshops to offer, plus whether day care and other services might be valuable. The input will go into the strategic plan, which will help fundraising efforts.
In the meantime, the center does offer some things that might be of interest to you, including a seniors program, an after-school program, a summer camp and, of course, bingo on Tuesday nights. The center, which is not affiliated with any city agency or a church, also has a large, air-conditioned gym that’s open to the public on limited hours and a decent courtyard.
