Community center opening Sept. 4

The long-awaited opening of the new $4.6 million Anna Maria Island Community Center on Magnolia Avenue in Anna Maria is on schedule to open Sept. 4, the day after Labor Day.

Center executive director Pierrette Kelly said the Center has received its final certificate of occupancy and the staff has been busy moving equipment and supplies into the new facility and “working out the bugs.”

She also noted that the after-care program for students will also begin at the Center Sept. 4. The program is currently held at the Anna Maria Elementary School.

A grand opening ceremony and celebration is planned for November.
