Executive Order 2020-176 allowed indoor Fitness Centers, Indoor Pools, and gymnasiums to open on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2020.

All Kirksey Recreation Center memberships have been extended for the duration of the closure. If you have paid in full for the year in advance, your expiration date has been extended. If you were paying via EFT on a monthly basis, your payment was stopped during the closure. Because the March 2020 payments had already been drafted when the Rec Center was closed, payments began again in October 2020.

Thank you for your patience with these account updates. If you have questions regarding your account, please email or call (734) 466-2900 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
