Abe Montoya Rec Center re-opens Friday

The renovated Abe Montoya Recreation Center will open just in time for summer. Friday, the city will host a grand opening of the facility, which has been closed since August 2016.

“We’re excited to re-open the newly renovated Abe Montoya Recreation Center and hope that the community will be proud of their new facility,” city Recreation Director Pamela Marrujo said.
