Children work on arts and crafts at the Sheila Jennings Recreation Center on the Westside while a grandparent volunteer keeps watch.
The Sheila Jennings Recreation Center serves families who live on the Westside. It is named after long-time community advocate Sheila Jennings, who is a former resident of College Hill Courts.
Facility Manager Fred Payne said some 35 youngsters ages five to 12 attend the center's after-school program where they do homework assignments and enjoy an array of recreational activities. The children are supervised and are served a snack as part of the program.
Mr. Payne added that the center will offer a summer camp for 60 children on the Westside that starts June 2.
Parents may register their children for the summer camp through the end of this month.
