Craf Center History
Jo Ann Tyler proposed the acronym C.R.A.F. Center as the name of the facility based on the goals of the group to provide a facility that serves the community by offering a Center for Recreation, Activities, and Fitness Activities. The group adopted this as the facility name. What started out as a fitness center and gymnasium has mushroomed to the present day to include many activities, classes, community events and facility room rentals. A portion of the building has been deeded to Roscommon County for expansion of County facilities including Second Chance Academy, Juvenile Detention Center and Children’s Assessment Center. The added gazebo on the front lawn serves as the center of the Art Festival, Christmas in the Village as well as offering a fine free concert series throughout the summer. The C.R.A.F. acronym certainly exceeded its expectations when the group adopted it in the spring of 1993.
