The new community center, which will offer activities for youth, families and seniors, and the property on which it sits, are named in honor of Mary Sue Rich, a longtime Ocala City Councilwoman, and Ruth E. Reed, a retired teacher and community activist. Hundreds of people were on hand for the January 10th celebration.
