Open House held at Washington Township Community Building

An Open House was held Sunday at the Washington Township Community Building.

Township Trustee, Shelly Kemble, said that this is a building able to handle any sized crowd.

“The seating capacity for this building is 400 and I believe it’s one of the biggest in a one county area,” commented Kemble. “We’re also open for birthday parties and we found out that the jumping castles fit inside the building so if you have a winter birthday for your child, you can rent a jumping castle and rent the building at a reduced cost. We’re just excited about how the building is starting to look, the feel of the building, and we’re just excited for the community.”

The color is a beautiful powder blue, and Shelly said there’s a reason for that color.

“We went with this color scheme because we found out that one of the Washington Township Elementary colors was blue. With the doors, we wanted an eye-catching color and most of the doors are exit doors and so we went with a darker blue. It used to be, what I call, a Fannie Mae mint green and it wasn’t very pretty. We’re still in the process of renovations and we still have some painting to be done.”

Shelly gave credit to a number of people who helped spruce up the building.

“I have to give credit to Paula and Dean Corey who spearheaded the project. I also give credit to my husband, Kurt, Patrick and Angie Jesuit, and we’ve had a lot of community service volunteers who actually worked really hard for the community. THey do have service hours, but some of them have been on their hands and knees cleaning.”
