LaFayette is changing the name of its main recreation building to honor the late Harrington couple, pioneers in the city's recreation endeavors. The building will be called the Harry and Sue Harrington Center.

City Manager David Hamilton, during the Nov. 13 council meeting, presented proposed designs and styles for a plague for the building. Council members preferred blocked lettering. The old brick walls would look best in a lighter color — such as white, bronze or gold — council members said.

The building, while it will officially be called the Harry and Sue Harrington Center, will mostly be referred to as the Harrington Center. A dedication ceremony will be held once the plague is finalized.
