Community Center

Community Center Closed 

As we monitor the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and follow the recommendations from the State of Ohio and health officials to curb community spread, patron safety and well-being is a top priority at the Community Center.

The Community Center will close beginning Friday, March 13 at 3 pm and will remain closed until further notice. Community Center memberships will be extended for the time that the Center is closed. Community Center staff will also step up efforts to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 through routine cleaning and disinfection of facilities, equipment, and common areas while the Center is closed. While each area is cleaned professionally each day, staff will also be cleaning these areas during the course of the day.

Due to the Community Center closure all programs, activities, rentals and birthday parties will be cancelled and/or postponed beginning Friday, March 13 until further notice. Rentals and birthday parties will be contacted with the option to reschedule or receive a refund. Patrons signed up for registered activities will be notified when a rescheduled date has been confirmed and the current registration will transfer over to the new date. Refunds will also be available. Group Fitness Monthly Passes will be extended for 3 weeks.
