Healthy Living Kitchen: Completed!

Thanks to a generous grant from the Mardag Foundation, the break room has been transformed into a fully functioning kitchen. The kitchen is available to store food for groups using our facility (classes, games, rentals) and for healthy living classes focusing on nutritious and tasty snacks and meals.

Building Relationships In Our Community

Creating and nurturing strong communities takes thoughtful relationship building and ongoing communication. That’s what has been happening behind the scenes here at Pier 55. Beginning this month, and throughout the fall, the fruits of those efforts will begin to be harvested.

Two of the amazing community organizations working cooperatively with us are the Sheldon Theatre and the Anderson Center. We are excited about what is coming, and you will be, too!

On Wednesday, Sept. 21, Chris Burawa, executive director of the Anderson Center, has arranged for a special musical performance by Michael Tsalka and Angelica Minero-Escobar.

Look for RWAS/Pier 55 member specials with both the Anderson Center and the Sheldon Theatre coming soon!
