Tempie Avery Montford Center Calendar

Construction will begin in the area surrounding the Tempie Avery Montford Center starting this spring (exact dates are yet to be determined). A diagram of the anticipated updates is inside of the center. Changes include increasing the size of the parking lot, removal of the tennis courts, a walking trail and a playground.

A free business class will be offered at the Tempie Avery Montford Center by A-B Tech on February 1 and May 24. The class is current and potential small business owners and is called “Starting a Better Business.” To register, just go to https://www.abtech.edu/small-business-center/seminar-calendar

Also, if you are planning on a New & Improved You for the New Year, we suggest trying Long Shang Gong Fu Tuesday nights 5:30-7:00pm at the Tempie Avery Center. This class is taught by Mark Small who is a “Yang Family fifth-generation certified instructor through the Choy Kam Man Academy, San Francisco, and first-generation Lingyunpai certified instructor through Chen Pan-ling’s International Martial Arts Foundation of PRC, and 4th degree black sash student of Grandmaster Liang Shou-Yu in the International Wushu Sanshou Dao Association.”

Badminton—Join this active group of players on Friday nights 5:30-8:00pm and Sunday Mornings 9 – 11am. If you don’t think badminton is a great workout, you haven’t played at Montford!
