Making Things Better

The 1970s were dedicated to developing physical programs and to improving the building and making it more flexible. Trojans who wanted and needed exercise, but who couldn’t afford the cost of a health spa, could take advantage of this new opportunity.

In 1976, the Center sponsored a series of Black History in America lectures at the Troy-Miami County Public Library in honor of the Bicentennial. During the 1970s, the Center truly became a community gathering place, with its mix of sports and programs to attract people of all ages and ethnicities.
