ELKHART — Mayor Dick Moore is touting several improvements at the Tolson Community Center.

In a statement issued Friday, Moore said the center has seen several changes since February, including the appointment of a new manager, Clyde Riley.

Among the changes Moore pointed out are the resurfacing of the gym floor and a renovated kitchen. He also listed 13 programming efforts that have been aided or supervised by the city. Those range from a job fair and college success program to youth programs and after-school programming.

“We will continue to seek programs that are of interest and benefit for Elkhart citizens,” Moore said.

The Tolson Center is located at 1320 Benham Ave. For more information call 295-6456.
