Sanibel Rec Center to celebrate second year

By Staff | Nov 24, 2009

On Tuesday, Dec. 1, the Sanibel Recreation Center will mark the second anniversary of their opening. Plans are underway to celebrate this occasion with the community and children who participate in the after-school recreation program.

This is the second year that the Rec Center has been open and many in the community enjoy the various opportunities the facility has to offer. There are currently 2,899 active semi-annual and annual Rec Center members.

“For many of us, it is hard to remember the old facility and we appreciate the commitment of the city to help build this facility and improve the quality of Islanders’ lives,” said Melissa Congress, a Parks & Recreation Committee Member and event co-chairperson.

Children of different ages are writing poems entitled “What I Love Most About The Recreation Center” to share at the anniversary celebration. On Dec. 1, the festivities will start at 3:45 p.m. Cake and healthy snacks will be served until 5 p.m.

The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily, weekly, semi-annual and annual memberships are available. For more information, call the Rec Center at 472-0345 or visit www.mysanibel.com.
