A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Tuesday, January 10, from 11 a.m. to noon, to celebrate the opening of the brand-new Mary Sue Rich Community Center at Reed Place in Ocala.
The construction of the 41,750-square-foot, two-story community center began in January 2021, and the official certificate of occupancy was received earlier this month.
The Mary Sue Rich Community Center, which is located at 1812 NW 21st Avenue in Ocala, includes designated indoor space for senior, youth, and family programs; a public library; a 400-seat banquet and event space that can be divided into three rooms; fitness equipment and an indoor walking track; two full basketball courts; and multi-purpose studio rooms.
There is no cost to attend the upcoming ribbon cutting ceremony and it is open to the public.
