As Director Paula Hebert explains, 'After talking with many PWAs, we discovered a definite need for an evening gathering place, as well as a comfortable daytime care center A place to get together with old friends and maybe even make some new ones. And since the idea fits so well with the overall purpose of the center, we thought 'why not use our facilities?! we have plenty of room and big screen tv, so let's show a movie and have some fun" Long-time volunteer Bob Austin adds, "I think we've created a very positive, fun atmosphere and we're looking forward to opening the doors and having some fun on Friday nights as well!' Paula, Bob and all the volunteers at the Bering Care Center invite all HIV positive persons and their guests to attend and to also stop by during the week for a visit. Located at 1440 Har- Montrose Neighborhood Events old, the center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday. Lunch is served at noon.

Gray Blind children play their version of soft ball at the center's diamond By RICHARD V. WEEKES The Montrose Voice Montrose' latest activity hub is doing a booming business and this is just the beginning for the Metropolitan Multi-Service Center at 1475 W. Gray. The facility, run by the city's Health and Human Services Department, is unique to southwestern United States, according to its Administrator, Bill Wanless, in that its primary aim is pro vid i ng recreational and educational service to the disabled. Secondarily, it is available to the public for a variety of functions. "Since we opened in the fall, we've been swamped," said Wanless. "Last month we had some 360 disabled people of all ages and more than 3000 others taking advantage of the facilities. We had one wedding with nearly 800 people." The Multi-Service Center occupies eight acres of land between Waugh Drive and Dunlavy Street. It contains an ultra-modern (its ventilator pipes are Bill Wanless is administrator ofthe center exposed—in orange) 34,000-square foot building, two tennis courts, a softball diamond, playground, jogging track, picnic area, parking for 270 cars and space for an Olympic-size swimming pool, to be built later. A vast auditorium, which can be divided into two rooms with the push of a button, holds a full-sized basketball court, a stage for live shows and a movie screen. It is the home court of the Lone Star Volleyball League which plays there every Thursday night. Surrounding the auditorium are locker rooms, a cafe and commercial kitchen available for parties (and caterers), meeting and conference rooms (seating up to 400 persons), a fully-equipped exercise room, and 14 office spaces, 10 of them now occupied by agencies concerned with the disabled. They rent for .70 a square foot. The Metropolitan Multi-Service Center is 34.000 sq. ft. large, and contains a basketball court, meeting rooms, a dining hall with commercial kitchen and offices All the facilities are available to the public—civic clubs, day care enterprises, athletic teams, aerobic groups, individuals and private groups wanting to dance and party, at low rentals. A tennis court rents for $3 an hour; the same as the exercise room, the volleyball court for $8 an hour, the softball field at $4 an hour. There are special discounts for the handicapped and senior citizens. There is no charge for lockers or showers—bring your own towel. (The Center has a detailed list of rental costs). The $5.9 million center is one of six such facilities in Houston operated by the Health and Human Services Dept. It is staffed by four professionals and is open from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., six and one half days a week. The Center brings to Montrose opportunities for civic enterprises the area has never had before. Once lights are erected over the softball field and the swimming pool is installed, it will be a magnet for every Montrosian, young and old. Says Wanless, 37, a social worker who came to Houston seven years ago from Wisconsin, "It's only just begun. There's no telling how far we can go in serving the community." The Center's telephone number is 529- 4711.
