DURHAM, N.H. -- Northeast Passage, a service program of the University of New Hampshire's Department of Recreation Management and Policy that provides recreational opportunities for people with disabilities, will hold an open house Thursday, Dec. 5, from 5 to 8 p.m.

The public is invited to visit Northeast Passage and its staff in its newly renovated space in the basement of Hewitt Hall. Enhancements to the facility include newly constructed walls, storage areas, offices, painting and carpeting.

Improvements were made possible thanks to the generosity of Jim Loomis of Dover and Adams Point Contracting of Durham.

Northeast Passage works with individuals and organizations to promote universal access to community and recreation. It offers instruction, sports and recreation, consulting on access and inclusion, an equipment rental program, and provides transition services to individuals with new spinal cord injuries helping them adjust to their home and community.

For more information on the open house or on Northeast Passage services, call 603-862-0070, or visit the Web site
