The former State Employees Credit Union (SECU) building at 142 Gaither St. in Downtown Mocksville was the gathering place Friday, Oct. 29 for food, fun and fellowship as CenterPoint Human Services (CenterPoint) officially celebrated the grand opening of the Davie Wellness Center.

Since June, contractors and CenterPoint staff have been working to transform the facility from a branch banking business office – complete with vault and drive-through – to a warm and welcoming, multi-purpose community center.

“The Davie Wellness Center is a place where community members can come to meet people, have fun, participate in healthy activities, gather information and learn about community resources,” said Meenal Khajuria, Davie community program coordinator.

A variety of activities take place at the center. Programs are designed to enhance the eight dimensions of wellness: emotional, physical, social, intellectual, occupational, spiritual, financial and environmental.

This month, the center is offering line dancing, weaving, wreath-making, yoga, nutrition classes as well as presentations and workshop on behavioral health topics. Membership is not required and most activities are free. Drop by the center for more details or download a calendar from
