The Two Rivers Activity Center is exceeding expectations with nearly 4,300 members, Kiwanis members learned at their recent meeting. The original expectation in TRAC’s first year was 2,700 members.
TRAC members vary from students to young families to seniors, said Amy Walters, facility manager. Seniors may qualify for a wellness benefit through Medicare’s Silver Sneakers program. TRAC receives reimbursement each time one of those members utilizes the facility. This is important, Walters said, because even getting out of the house this time of year and even just socializing is good for wellness.
In addition to memberships, TRAC also generates revenue from day passes, child care, summer programs and birthday parties.
