Community Day is a celebration of the Carbondale community. On Jan. 14, the community came out in full force to the SIU Student Recreation Center on the SIU campus in Carbondale. While at the REC patrons were able to tour the facility, participate in nutrition seminars, receive mini massages and try out the equipment including the Olympic-sized pool in the Shea Natatorium. Patrons that purchased a new annual membership received 20 percent off their membership. There was also 10 percent off vouchers given out for those that did not purchase memberships the same day. Patrons also had the chance to win free memberships, group fitness class passes and a one-hour personal training assessment.
