About Friends of Tucker Rec
The Friends of Tucker Rec began in February 2013 and has been slowly growing our membership ever since. Our most successful project to date was the 2016 Martin Luther King Day of Service where we had over 50 volunteers help paint the front hallways. We are dedicated to improving the usability, aesthetics and safety of the building, adding areas to the grounds for education and enjoyment and improving the curb appeal of this Tucker landmark.
We invite you to join us as we work together with the staff, local government and our community to enhance the facility and offerings of the Tucker Recreation Center.
