A community center honoring a New Hampshire police officer who died in the line of duty is re-opening after a major renovation project.

The Michael Briggs Community Center in Manchester provides free after-school activities for youth, including academic programs and sports. Building on Hope, a New Hampshire nonprofit, spearheaded the renovation project.

A ceremony was scheduled Sunday to show off the renovations at the 105-year-old facility. Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan planned to attend, as did Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas.

Briggs was killed in the line of duty in 2006. The man convicted of shooting him, Michael Addison, is the state’s only death row inmate.
