The following activities will reopen at 50 percent capacity:

Members can register on ActiveNet online or call the recreation center to schedule a timeslot.
The city’s after-school program will resume Sept. 28 and be available from 3 to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The cost is $20 per week per child or $120 per six-week session.
