Did you know there is a $27 million campus right here in Ward 8 that was built for the children and adults living east of the river? Did you know that this place provides over $17.5 MILLION in services to this community every year? Did you know that membership at this place was FREE? Did you know that this place has the largest DC theater east of the Anacostia River and the largest urban farm?
Did you know that this special place was the Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus AKA THEARC and that it is located at 1901 Mississippi Ave SE near Congress Heights?
Whether you knew the answers to these questions or not you should attend tomorrow night's community update meeting and get information on programs for children, teens, adults and seniors at THEARC. Many of these programs are free or low-cost. THEARC was built for you and you need to come and take advantage of it. It's not too late to sign the kids up for summer camps and adults, you should sign up for some of the great fitness classes such as pilates, barre, yoga or zumba which are offered every week! Classes are only $6 if you live in 20020 or 20032!
