The event will be held on the third floor of the Recreation Center. Each organization will distribute flyers, brochures and/or materials about its programs. Live Civilly will be collecting non-perishable food items and showcasing programs and services available to the community.

During the open house event, the Recreation Street Gym will host hourly events like kickball and three-point contests, and tours of the new Recreation commercial kitchen will be offered.
