Wapato Community Center finally reopens

WAPATO, Wash. -- We're pleased to report that Wapato's Community center is open again after closing last summer.

It shut down when the Wapato Youth Athletic League couldn't afford a higher insurance requirement mandated by the city.

Several organizations stepped up to cover the costs.

After-school programs are running and pee-wee basketball will start in a few weeks.

New tutoring programs are also in the works.
