CREEDMOOR — The Creedmoor Community Center celebrated its first birthday on May 6 with tons of activities for young and old.
The bounce house brought squeals of delight that could be heard over the DJ playing music for the handful of people dancing. The tweens and adults were drawn to beach ball volleyball, while the teen aged boys tried their hand at beach ball basketball.
Young children worked on identifying shapes as they built things with the big blue building blocks.
Board games and video games were set up in the Willow Oak ball room for those willing to accept the challenge.
Creedmoor’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Board, along with the Granville County Human Relations Commission, was on hand to talk with members of the community and bring everyone closer together.
The $6.4 million facility dubbed the “crown jewel” of Creedmoor opened its doors one year ago and the response from the community has been tremendous. 
“We want to thank our 1,500-plus members and the local community for their support over the past year,” said Creedmoor Recreation Director Christopher Horrigan. “From fitness goals and weddings to birthdays, gym rentals and community programs, their participation and patronage bring purpose and life to the center.”
The facility contains a rentable ballroom, open gym, indoor track, exercise equipment, computer lab, fitness rooms and other recreation amenities inside and outside.
More information about memberships can be found at www.cityofcreedmoor.org. To make an appointment to tour the facility, contact Horrigan at recreation@cityofcreedmoor.org or 919-764-1005

Gracie represented Granville County and the state of North Carolina through her work at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. to honor her grandfather and others who have served in the U.S. armed forces. She exemplifies the motto of Wreaths Across America: to remember fallen veterans; to honor those who serve; and to teach others the value of freedom. Gracie received a certificate of appreciation, a challenge coin, and a statute of an American bald eagle from committee chairman Michael Turner, right.
