Eagle View Adult Center Opening Ceremony

Eagle View Adult Center Opening in Brighton, CO

The Eagle View Adult Center in Brighton, Colorado had its official grand opening and cornerstone setting ceremony in May. The center had already been open since February, but the original grand opening had to be canceled due to a snowstorm.

Having a slightly delayed grand opening was actually pretty neat because all of us who had been on the design team were able to meet members of the Eagle View community who were so proud of their building and wanted to tell us all about the design. It was so rewarding to realize this project, which had consumed our design team’s working life for several years, had very quickly become a home for this community—and one over which they felt enormous ownership.

Freemasons from throughout the state came to the event to officially set the cornerstone according to masonic traditions. This was the first time most of us BRSers had ever witnessed a full masonic ceremony. No matter what your religion is, I think most architects would find it pretty cool to hear references to the “Great Architect of the Universe.”

The Eagle View Adult Center staff had prepared a full day of programming so that everyone who attended the opening could try out the various activities available in the new center. There was a senior fitness class, pottery painting, and even a spirited line-dancing session in the multipurpose room. All in all, it was great to see the building on which we’d worked so hard animated by such a great community of people.

Now, a few months later, the Eagle View Adult Center has been awarded Colorado Parks and Recreation’s prestigious Columbine Award. We’re pretty sure the building will continue to touch lives for years to come!
