ABLE celebrates opening of new Caledonia TRC

Hundreds of people joined the festivities on Sunday, Sept. 25, when ABLE, Inc. celebrated the opening of its new Teaching and Recreation Center in Caledonia with an open house and ribbon-cutting.

The event, held at the TRC, located at 1004 Loeffler Avenue, near Caledonia High School, also was a belated celebration of ABLE’s 35th anniversary, which was in 2015.

Executive Director Gail Meyer joined ABLE and ABLE Foundation Board members for a brief program, then longtime parent Don Meiners and his daughter, Lisa, took part in the ceremonial ribbon-cutting. Visitors were welcome to tour the new building, enjoy face-painting, balloon creations and a magic show, and sample refreshments.

Construction was completed this summer on the new facility, which is a place where people supported by ABLE, Inc. can learn skills to live more independently, take part in recreation programs and exercise. The building also houses ABLE’s Caledonia offices.
