On Saturday, February 2nd The Moriches Community Center officially opened our new and exciting recreation center. The grand opening event, attended by more than 300 friends and supporters, was a huge success. There were refreshments donated by Tend Coffee in Shirley and Nettie’s Country Bakery in Center Moriches, as well as free t-shirts provided by East End Screen Printing. Also at the event was tons of local community program information and a welcoming crowd of community members.
The new recreation center, located at 313 Frowein Rd, Center Moriches, features a large recreation hall, a computer lab equipped with six high-quality computers, a conference room, and a kitchen. All of which will be used in running and supporting town events and programs.
Brookhaven Town will be offering programs for seniors on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at the center. We at the community center will be holding after-school programs there on most days. The programs range from Chill Zone After School Drop In and homework help and recreation events, peer leadership, a substance-abuse awarenes, and prevention program called “Moriches Bay In The Know,” and outreach and wellness programs.
Several notable members of our community and town representatives were in attendance. Town Councilman Dan Panico was quoted as saying “The partnership with Moriches Community Center and the Town of Brookhaven is mutually beneficial at our new Recreation Center. Our residents will have services available to them at most any age.”
