The Herndon Community Center is planning a week-long series of events later this month to celebrate its 45th anniversary.

Bob Williams, director of the Town of Herndon Parks & Recreation Department, expressed pride in reaching this milestone.

“Celebrating 45 years of community service underscores the continuous support from our residents and the dedication of our staff to offer exceptional programs and facilities,” he said in a press release.

The anniversary week will feature a range of activities and special offers, including free-admission fitness classes, themed Zumba sessions and discounts on passes. Highlights of the celebration include:

  • Monday, March 25: Kick off the celebration with a series of special fitness classes, including a 45-minute tutorial workout (12 pm & 6 pm), a full-strength workout (6:30 pm), and a 70s themed Zumba session (5:30 pm).
  • Tuesday, March 26: Get groovy with another round of 70s-themed Zumba (5:30 pm),guaranteed to get you moving and shaking.
  • Wednesday, March 27: Keep the party going with more 70s-themed Zumba (5:30 pm) and a 45- minute tutorial workout (6 pm) designed to help you achieve your fitness goals.
  • Thursday, March 28: Close out the week with one last burst of energy with a 45-minute tutorial workout (11 am) and another fun-filled session of 70s-themed Zumba (5:30 pm).

Visitors will also have the opportunity to participate in daily giveaways and engage in a coloring page activity commemorating the center’s 45th anniversary. Additionally, the center is offering promotional deals, including admission for $4.50, a 45-day pass available for $45, and a buy-one-get-one-free offer for individuals aged 45 and older.
