Provide recreation, continuing education and social service activities/programs for the children, youth and adults of the participating municipalities in a fiscally responsible manner.
In January 2000, after nearly 2 years of extensive planning, GEARS (Greater Elizabethtown Area Recreation & Community Services) began providing services to the Elizabethtown Area. GEARS represents a merger of the EACSA and EARC. Services provided include administration, scheduling of resources, a community center, child care program, recreation and a senior center.
When you get into GEARS you become part of something bigger, your community. It’s where you live and we’re here to do one thing, make it better.
Opportunities to meet new people, grow as a person and just have fun at any age, can be summed up in three simple words.
LIVE. LEARN. PLAY.
