Point of Interest
“Eisenhower is a really interesting rec center because it honors veterans. There are actual uniforms and memorbilia from veterans in all states displayed in a great way! It might mean more to me being the daughter of a vet but....worth mentioning. :) By the way, if you need any guest passes, please let us know in advance so we can get those ordered.”
