LYNNWOOD, Wash., – The Lynnwood Recreation Center held a drive-thru birthday event on Saturday, April 24 in celebration of the facility turning 10 years old.
The Lynnwood Parks and Recreation Department invited community members to drive up the entrance of the Recreation Center to have a donut from Zuri’s Donutz courtesy of Grand Canyon University, reminisce on their experiences at the facility, and upon Director of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Arts Lynn Sordel’s request- sing Happy Birthday.
Each vehicle also received a swag bag in a reusable city of Lynnwood tote bag containing a Grand Canyon University lanyard and pen, and a reusable face mask.
“We held this because we wanted to say thank you to the wonderful community that has supported this facility for over 10 years,” said Sordel.
In December of 2009, the Recreation Center closed its door to undergo renovations, reopening on April 24, 2011.
“The neatest thing about this facility is how it has brought the community together- all ages, all races, all abilities; we serve everybody. I think it’s provided Lynnwood with some identity because the things we do in here are really important.”
The Lynnwood Recreation Center is the leading water safety provider in Snohomish County and has been the facility’s core service for the past 40 years. Sordel says he’s excited for the community to continue to experience the fun activities they host.
To celebrate the Lynnwood Recreation Center’s 10th anniversary, it will be holding special in-person events and activities every week through the summer beginning June 28.
