The Recreation Building is closed until further notice due to the flooding of the building on October 9th. Additional flooding in May has pushed back the rebuilding project. We have been able to reschedule some of our activities at other facilities in the community, but not all. The Recreation Office is temporarily set up at the Utilities Office located at 2 W. Jackson St. with the office hours of 8:30 am-4:30 pm. The office phone is still 365-4990.
