Jammel Cutler reports for Columbia-Greene Media that New Lebanon's community center opens Dec. 21 with the local free store and a game room. While the center is open a few days before the holidays, in January it will assume regular hours on Tuesdays 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursdays 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. New Lebanon Town Supervisor Tistrya Houghtling said the center cost $41,500, with some funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. Houghtling said, “It is an old firehouse.... It has been in the community for a long time. The fire company built a new truck bay and is in the process of building a new meeting hall in the back of their new truck bay. While they build their new meeting Hall, they still need to keep the current building so they can have their meetings and programming there. They are allowing us to come in and run a community center nine hours a week during the hours that they aren’t using it." Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
