Friday afternoon the City of Rome hosted a ribbon-cutting celebration of the newly renamed Rome Community Center; previously called the Rome Senior Center on Riverside Parkway across from Ridgeferry Park.

The public was invited to tour the center, learn about current programs, and view recent renovations completed at the facility.

The center has been rebranded to better communicate that the center is open to everyone in the community and provides a great space to rent for groups and events.

The Coosa Valley Regional Services/Area Agency on Aging operates a senior nutrition program at this location and contributed funding that the City used for improvements at the facility.

This event was held in celebration of “Georgia Cities Week.” This year’s theme is “Georgia Cities: Lighting the Way” and recognizes the many services and infrastructure the city provides to make Rome attractive to residents, visitors, and businesses.
