Fox Hill Neighborhood Center Opening

HAMPTON—Fox Hill-area residents will again have a neighborhood center when the new facility opens on Saturday, June 5. Located in the former Cornerstone Church at 65 Hall Road, the center will open for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10am and stay open for tours and visits until noon. This will actually be a double ceremony. After city officials and the neighborhood group cut the ribbon on the renovated main building, they will officially break ground on part two of the center which will contain a gymnasium.

Fox Hill groups created their first neighborhood center in a building at Grundland Park. It was used from the mid-1970s until it was destroyed by a tornado in 2014. That center served as a site for youth sports registrations and banquets, various meetings, senior citizens gatherings, weddings, funerals, family reunions, spaghetti suppers, and fish fries. Many of the events held there were often fundraisers for local organizations.

Rooms in the new Fox Hill Neighborhood Center will be available for rent for organizations and individuals who want to hold events there. People who volunteer at the center will receive credits they can use toward the cost of future rentals. For more information, visit http://foxhillneighborhoodcenter.com. The site also has an events calendar.
