Center to celebrate milestone with Sunday open house

Friday, December 13, 2002

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.
