Jama Fabry, with the Community Center, said it's important to create safe places for children and the community to gather.

"We don't have a lot of place in the Alton area for kids to go that are safe and have chaperones," she said. "It's a great opportunity for kids to have some fun but also be in a safe environment and there is something there for everyone. There's a music room, art area, rock climbing wall, there's really something for everyone."
