“People need physical exercise, and our community center plays a pivotal role with great programs for families and seniors.” said Mayor Jim Ferrell. “We have all collectively endured this pandemic together, and just a bit of normalcy will mean so much to our community center members and staff alike.”

Restrictions are still in place for the workout facility, requiring masks and physical distancing. Other restrictions include appointment-based fitness, and training allowing no more than one customer per room or 500 square feet for large facilities, according to the governor’s guidelines.
