The Ribbon Has Been Cut!


The renovated Decatur Recreation Center was officially opened this morning at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Mayor Jim Baskett was on hand to say a few words about the renovation and cut the ribbon with the help of Mayor Pro Tem Kecia Cunningham and Commissioner Patti Garrett.

Mayor Baskett also announced that the gymnasium would be dedicated to former Mayor Bill Floyd and affectionately called “The Bill”.  Members of the Decatur softball team were on hand to unfurl the banner.


Tours have been offered throughout the day and hundreds of community members were on hand to celebrate the opening and see the improvements to the building. It’s not too late – we have one more tour offered this evening at 7 pm. Stop by and check out the renovated meeting rooms, the great new multi-purpose studio, the new administrative suite and more.

Be sure to notice the paneling on the walls and the ceiling of the lobby area which were made out of the old bleachers. The old gym floor was repurposed into many tables found on the main level.

We look forward to serving the community in our newly renovated building!
