It’s been nearly 6 months since we suspended our normal operations and phased nearly every program and service to be offered outdoors or on-line through our JConnect virtual platform.   During this time, we learned together how to create community in new ways, we supported each other and in return have only strengthened our JCommunity.  I am pleased to announce that with the announcement earlier this week of Governor Cooper’s Phase 2.5, we are now able to safely reopen our indoor facility on Tuesday, September 8th.   Please read the details below in its entirety for reopening dates and important information.
