Rec Center to Close Early for Romney Visit Thursday


The Ehrnfelt Recreation Center will close at 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1 in preparation for a rally with Ann Romney.

The Senior Center portion of the building will probably close earlier, Recreation Director Bryan Bogre said.

"That will be up to the Secret Service," Bogre said. 

Doors will open at 4 p.m. for the Women’s Victory Rally with Ann Romney. The event starts at 5:30 p.m.

It's not known yet whether the rec center will re-open after the rally, which is scheduled to end at 7 p.m. Bogre said a decision will be made at that time, depending on circumstances.

The Event Center holds up to 1,200 people, but Bogre said a stage and some bleachers will take up some of that room.

Strongsville Patch will be publishing live tweets from the event.

Non-perishable food items will be collected at the door for donation to Hurricane Sandy’s storm relief efforts.

Be prepared to go through airport-like security. Guests are asked to bring as few personal items as possible. No bags, sharp objects, umbrellas, liquids or signs will be allowed in the venue. Cameras are permitted.
