Community center to host grand opening of new fitness area May 6

Thursday, May 2, 2019

All Eurekans and their families are invited to attend the Eureka Springs Community Center's grand opening of the fitness areas from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, May 6. There will be demonstrations, refreshments, a ribbon cutting and tours of the newly redesigned exercise space.

The range of equipment and machines will make it easy to find the perfect fit for your personal style. Whatever your interests or requirements, the community center will have something to make your muscles strong. There are six weight machines, treadmills, ellipticals, steppers, free weights, weight benches, dumbbells and bikes.

The fitness room is made possible through grants from the Windgate Charitable Foundation, the Sunderland Foundation and the Ray and Christine Sturgis Foundation. Local resident Jom Statton helped the community center locate the proper machines and facilitate their purchase, and Shile McCarty contributed the sale price of his restored 1930 Ford Model A truck to make it a true fitness area.
