Get Outside

By Heather Chapman

Our busy season is upon us: The season for emerging and spending more time outdoors at local events. The days start getting longer, flowers bloom and the warmer, sunny days bring families and friends to Kernersville to enjoy all our town has to offer. Every season gives us a cause to celebrate, here are a few reasons to get out and join in on the community fun!

You are invited to enjoy a movie under the stars! The Kernersville Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to offer the following family friendly movies presented by Jeffrey Hutchins Law Firm.

Kernersville Community Recreation and Events Center Update!
I have left the best news for last, as I know everyone is waiting to hear updates on the new Community Recreation and Events Center. The building is currently 65% complete. While driving by you may have noticed all the windows being installed and finishing up the exterior of the building. Moving indoors, the main focus right now is working with our IT Department and installing wiring for audio-visual, data, and locks. Once complete, the remainder of the drywall will be installed throughout. They are also installing the ceiling grids, so the inside of the building is coming together and starting to look like the layout of a recreation center. We continue to be excited for what is to come and will keep you updated as things continue to progress.
