Community Center Undergoes Rejuvenation

Laura DiBiase was delighted with the day camp program that her children attended
this summer at the new Westbrook Community Center. In the past, she said, she
had to coax her 10-year-old son to attend, but a restructuring of the city-run
program this summer to include many more activities beyond sports made her son,
and now her 6-year-old daughter, eager to go to day camp. "He and his sister
loved going," DiBiase said. "This year it’s almost like a totally new program."
The re-vamped summer recreation program is just one of the changes at the city’s
new Community Center--located in the former Wescott Junior High School building
on Bridge Street. And as the fall approaches, plans for more new opportunities
are under way, according to Maria Dorn, the city’s first director of community
- John C.L. Morgan
