Facility Improvements Completed

We would like to thank everyone for your patience last week as several flooring projects were recently completed.

The court of the Dunlap Family Gymnasium has been resurfaced and the Nancy Ann Taylor Dance Studio received a new, multi-purpose floor.

Thanks to your continued support, we’re able to keep the facility fresh and looking new.
