Lots! Since January, the Lake City Community Center has been under new management. While the building itself looks much the same, the operations inside are expanding and changing.
One exciting change is that the Lake City Community Center staff is working with the University YMCA to begin offering programming at the center this summer. To kick it off, the Y is hosting a “Y Showcase Event” on June 1st, 1-4pm at the Lake City Community Center. This free drop-in event will offer sample Zumba, Yoga, Barre, and Salsa classes with concurrent free childcare. There will also be a drop-in hip-hop production studio for teens.
Give Your Feedback!
The Y would like your feedback as they plan for future Lake City programming. Please take their Lake City YMCA Program Survey. It takes less than 5 minutes and will help the Y in determining various programs, childcare, and pricing for the Lake City neighborhood.
Communication and the Arts
The Lake City Community Center (LCCC) also now has an active website, including descriptions of upcoming events and a linkable calendar. Just today at the center, a group of homeschoolers was enjoying this sumi brush painting lesson with artist Yvonne Palka.
Coming up on June 15th is a mosaic class with Nancy Cubbage, a mixed media fine artist and Lake City local. Ms. Cubbage will be offering a series of different mosaic classes for youth, teens and adults at the community center. Visit the LCCC website and sign up to create a beautiful birdhouse like the one pictured here.
But wait… There’s more!
A new Cultural Arts Program is also in the works at the Lake City Community Center. Called The ARTery, this group’s vision is to create and support artistic opportunities for everyone in Lake City. Visit their website here to learn more.
