Pennridge Community Center
March 4, 2015
The Center will be open today at 9:00 am, as the Pennridge School District is
opening 2 hours late. This is our policy when the schools are opening late.
Please use common sense if you decide to drive to the Center.
It is not too late to participate in the Center’s Lottery Calendar for March, April, and May. Calendars which cost $10 each or 3 for $25 are currently on sale at the Center. During the three month period, there are 91 chances to wim. Each day’s number pays at least $25, with 19 bonus days of $50 to $100. You can purchase a calendar of your favorite number, if it has not already been sold.
Comfortable with Computers?
Through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Center is offering ten workshops which will help you to become more comfortable with computers and iPads. Workshops taught by Dale Roades and Ted Heimbach provide activities to improve your skills with the basic programs as well as special software. The six workshops held in the past two months were very successful in improving participants’ skills and confidence. The following workshops will be offered in the coming months: Introduction to the iPad (January 6-8 and 13-15), Power Point (January 20-22), E-mail Basics (January 27-29), and Internet Basics (February 3-5).
Ten workshops beginning in March include: PC Basics (March 3-5), Word (March 10-12), Power Point (March 17-19), Excel (March 24-26), Print Shop (March 31-April 2), Publisher (April 7-9), Photo Shop (April 14-16), Introduction to iPad (April 21-23), E-Mail Basics (April 28-30), and Internet Basics (May 5-7).
The Workshops are currently scheduled from 1:00 to 2:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. If there is sufficient interest from members as well as other residents, additional workshops will be scheduled in late afternoon or early evening beginning in March. The cost for each workshop is $10.00. Call or stop in for a description of each of the Workshops as well as a registration form.
The overall goal of our project is to enable seniors to gain and maintain skills to actively participate in the computer age. Consider participating in our workshops to become more comfortable with the software your grandchildre n use daily!

Your Center celebrated its 50th Anniversary throughout this year.
Our last event to celebrate this special anniversary was held Friday, October 11, featuring the Shake, Rattle & Soul dance band. As with all of our other events, this was a great success.
We would like to thank everyone who helped celebrate our Anniversary. For the non-members who attended events, please stop back and take a tour and hopefully join. There are many activities and classes to take advantage of, and we would like to see you participate. For the members, we hope to see you more often, as there will be new activities and classes, including a new Nutritional Program.
Please check out our Newsletter, our website, and the Center itself.
We hope to see you soon!

The Center will be closed for National Holidays.
Also, the Center will be closed due to inclement weather coinciding with the closing of the Pennridge area schools (#757 on some radio stations). If you are unsure of the closure,
WNPV (1440 AM) and WFMZ-TV69 (Allentown) will announce the school closing by name.
If the school district opens late the Center will be open, but use common sense.
CBS3 carries school closings online at http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/schools/.
You may also call the Center at 215-453-7027 or 215-453-7028.
