On Friday, February 11, the community came together to remember the positive impacts that the Michael E. Rodgers Seniors’ Center has had on the community. This event also served as a way to celebrate the groundbreaking of the City’s newest public park.
Hosted by Mayor Barbara Delgleize, the City’s official archivist, Kathie Schey, and Senior Supervisor of the Senior Center in Central Park, Randy Pesqueria spoke on the historical significance of the Center. American Legion Post 133, who will continue to call the existing outreach building home, lowered the American flag for the last time. In the OneHB spirit, City Council, members of the Community and Library Services Commission, and City staff officially broke ground on the park.
The new public park is expected to open March 2023. It will include open green space, new walking paths, a renovated clubhouse for community use, and added picnic and seating areas.
