Greater Midland embraces community for the holidays

Taking great pride in serving the community, Greater Midland thrives in providing recreation, social services and wellness experiences. The center employs highly trained professionals to impact the lives of members and guests with the purpose of building healthier lives, together. Further, Greater Midland's goal is to make these experiences accessible to everyone.
