Grand Opening of the East End Community Center

The Grand Opening of the East End Community Center, at 46 Elm Street in Cortland, was a big success this past Sunday (June 5), with over 200 people in attendance for the festivities. Many people toured the facility to see the historical exhibit and the wall of honor. People were delighted by performances by the Cortland Old Timer Band and the Seven Valleys Chorus of the Sweet Adelines. The Cortland Police Department was on hand to provide digital finger printing for families with children, and everyone enjoyed a slice of grand opening cake. For more information about the East End Community Center programs, call the center at 428-0497 or the Youth Bureau at 753-3021.
