After being closed for more than six months for renovations, the Pershing Community Center is scheduled to reopen Tuesday. The center is reopening following the installation of a new HVAC system and some "touch-ups" to the facility.
The center's BlackJack Bar and Grill will be offering a lunch buffet from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays.
"FMWR is excited to have the Pershing Community Center reopening and ready to serve our patrons," said Megan O'Donoghue, FMWR marketing coordinator.
With new menu items, the buffet will offer patrons a quick lunch. The all-you-can-eat lunch buffet is $12 for the full buffet, $8.50 for soup and salad, and both meals include a drink and dessert.
The menu is available online at www.fortleonardwoodmwr.com.

Patrons can preregister for Trivia Night in advance by Jan. 22 at 3pm for $20 per team or at the door the night of the event.
According to O'Donoghue, another event coming up in the next few weeks is; Comic Book Killer, an interactive Murder Mystery Night. Tickets are available online for $10 in advance or $15 at the door the night of the event.
