Dozens of residents, community leaders and government officials turned out Tuesday, Aug. 6 to celebrate the official transfer of the Quinta-Gamelin Army Reserve Center to the Town of Bristol for use as a community center.

The building boasts more than 18,000 square-feet of indoor space and occupies 5.3 acres. Over the next year, the building will undergo renovations, creating  a game room, adult community room, full gymnasium, fitness and exercise equipment, a full service kitchen, among other amenities, said Walter Burke, head of Bristol’s Parks and Recreation department.

Roughly $1 million of a $9 million bond referendum approved by voters last November has been earmarked to fund the renovations.
