The Cape Area Family Resource Center will celebrate paying off its building, thank donors for their contributions and showcase center offerings with an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Community members and agencies donated $40,000, paying off the building in full in one year. The center is located at 1202 S. Sprigg St. in a former church and serves the section of Cape Girardeau bounded by William Street, West End Boulevard and Southern Expressway.
The Cape Area Family Resource Center provides after-school tutoring and mentoring for children and teens, summer reading and lunch programs, health and education services for senior citizens, job training and health screenings.
At 2:15 p.m. Sunday, center board members and others in attendance will dedicate the Dr. C. John Ritter Activities Hall. Ritter was a board member until his death earlier this year.
For more information about the celebration or the center, call Patricia Brey, executive director, at 335-8170.
