Mae Simmons Community and Adult Activity Centers will be hosting a Grand Re-Opening and National Night Out Celebration on Tuesday, August 1, 2017, from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

The centers are celebrating the completion of the major renovations of their centers and to participate in the annual National Night Out event.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., followed by carnival games, an information fair, hot dogs, an ice cream social, bingo, and a family movie night. This is a free family event and is open to all ages.

Completed renovations for the combined 12,400 square-foot centers included new floor coverings, wall painting and texture, ceiling, electrical including lighting, HVAC systems, updated kitchen appliances and cabinets, and new furnishings. The exterior renovations included painting, a new bench, ADA ramps and roofing. 

National Night Out is a community building campaign that is designed to heighten crime-prevention awareness, generate support for participation in local anti-crime programs, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. This campaign will send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
