LFP group fitness classes end on May 1st. However, you may still utilize CRCE on your own until May 10th. Starting on May 13th our program moves to the ARC (Activities and Recreation Center) for the summer. We do this because CRCE is closed or has limited hours during the summer months. You may use the ARC the same as CRCE M-F; 6am-12:30pm (you only need to sign in by 12:30pm). Starting on June 10th the LFP group fitness classes will resume every M/W/F; 7am-8:30am at the ARC. There will be no LFP member only free swim during the summer. For ARC pool hours see below for details.

On Memorial Day the ARC only opens at 11am and both the indoor and outdoor pool will be open at starting at 11am.
