Larson Lifestyle Center free to community on June 16, celebrates 25 years

LINCOLNUnion College invites the community to celebrate the grand reopening of Larson Lifestyle Center on June 16. For one day, explore the newly renovated facility and customer-friendly atmosphere for free. Workout in the weight and fitness room (5:45 a.m.-5:30 p.m.) or enjoy the pool’s lap swim (5:45 a.m.-9 a.m., noon-2 p.m.), open swim (3 p.m.-4:30 p.m.) or a water aerobic class (8 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.).
        Larson Lifestyle Center is also celebrating its 25th anniversary in July. To commemorate the quarter a century of services during the 25 days from July 10 to August 11, new or renewing annual members can enter to win prizes: 25 iPod shuffles and 25 Larson duffle bags.
        “Larson is one of the best pools I’ve ever been in,” said Donnie Epp, 83-year-old life long swimmer and member of Larson for 23 years. “You don’t feel you’re swimming in a cave. It’s a bright, cheery place that makes you feel good.”
        In March the Larson Lifestyle Center pool was closed for structural repairs. The three-month renovation project cost an estimated $550,000 and included replacing the ceiling structure and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, as well as painting and other upgrades.
        Larson Lifestyle Center is located on 51st Street and Bancroft Avenue on the campus of Union College. Call 402.486.2525 for more information about memberships or the free grand reopening event.
