The Beede Center would like to sincerely thank you all 

for your patience during our Annual Maintenance

Shut Down Week! 

It was a busy and productive week with many upgrades, improvements and

a true deep cleaning

taking place both

indoors and outdoors!

We hope you've had a chance to be back enjoying the

Beede Center once again

and if not we hope to

see you soon!


Fall sessions will be starting soon. For a more streamlined check-in process we have transitioned from paper sign-in sheets to doing "digital check-ins" for all our classes and lessons.

Please remember when you arrive to give the receptionist your name (even if you already scanned your membership card) so that we can check you in for your class or lesson. Your cooperation is appreciated!

School Year Parking Information:

It becomes especially important this time of year to be sure you have your parking pass displayed while parked in the Beede Center parking lot. Please see the front desk attendant if you need a parking pass.

As a reminder, the on street parking spots are reserved for CCHS students. Please park in the Beede Center parking lot only.
