The Holiday season is upon us and with all of the hustle that the season
brings, remember to take care of yourself and loved ones.  We wish you and your family a warm and wonderful holiday season! Thank you for letting us be a part of your health and wellness journey.
 
We have many fun and exciting programs and activities planned this winter and spring! Make sure to check them out in our Recreation Activity Guide.   Sign up  online or at the Welcome Desk at the CRC.

Beginning January 1, 2020 there will be a membership fee increase. The fee increase is directly related to increased costs associated with operating the facility, such as the statewide increases to minimum wage, utility costs, maintenance contracts, etc. A small fee increase will be implemented each January to keep up with these increasing costs.  More information can be found on our website.

You have probably noticed that the CRC expansion has begun!  Be sure to check the CRC  Facebook page and website for weekly updates!


Please Note: The Gymnasium and Group Fitness Studio will be closed December 23rd  through December 26 th for the annual floor refinishing project. The
