30 Dec RIBBON CUTTING – TOWN OF PALM BEACH MORTON AND BARBARA MANDEL RECREATION CENTER
The Morton and Barbara Mandel Recreation Center officially opened Friday morning with a slogan, Live Well at the Mandel, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony that featured town officials and the Mandels’ daughter.
The ceremony was followed by an afternoon open house that included facility tours. The new center’s 17,000-square-foot building features multi-purpose rooms, a gym, snack room, after-school room, game room, renovated pro shop and expanded playground. The $14 million dollar cost of the project was evenly divided among the Morton and Barbara Mandel Family Foundation, the Friends of Recreation fund-raising group and the Town of Palm Beach.
