Five Points Washington -- January 21, 2010
What originally started as an idea for a fitness center has blossomed into a large multi-purpose facility with a partnership among with the City of Washington, the Washington Park District, Washington Community High School, Washington District Library, and the Washington Area Community Center (WACC) Board.
OLLI visited Five Points Washington, the non-profit, 136,000 square-foot facility in mid-January. During the tour, we viewed the fitness center, indoor track, aquatics center, gymnasium, performing arts center, banquet rooms, and the library. Two members of the WACC Board, President Sherril West and Secretary Kris Hasten, also addressed our group and explained the incredible community support that helped build the facility, which now boasts more than 7,000 members.
OLLI extends its appreciation to Sherril and Kris, along with General Manager Vikki Poorman, who provided an incredible learning experience and informative tour. For more information about the facility, please visit the Five Points Washington website.
