Pennridge Community Center
Senior Living Expo
On Wednesday June 24, 2015 from 6-8 pm, the Center held a Senior Living Expo.
Eight local assisted living and memory care facilty representatives to talk to the community members about their facilities, to educate them and their families about senior living options.
Turnout was fair, but valuable information was given to those attendees.
We are discussing the possibility of hosting another Expo in the Fall. Please keep the Center in mind when the next Expo takes place, although if you need to contact a facility in the interim, feel free to contact Debbie Scollon at the Center - 215-453-7027.
Comfortable with Computers?
Through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Center had offered ten workshops which helped you to become more comfortable with computers and iPads. Workshops taught by Ted Heimbach and Dale Roades provided activities to improve your skills with the basic programs as well as special software. The ten workshops held in the past five months were very successful in improving participants’ skills and confidence.
The ten workshops just completed were: PC Basics, Word, Power Point, Excel, Print Shop, Publisher, Photo Shop, Introduction to iPad, E-Mail Basics, and Internet Basics.
As the above workshops were completed as specified in the grant, if there is sufficient interest from members as well as other residents to continue these workshops, additional workshops may be scheduled in late afternoon or early evening. Call or stop in for a description of each of the Workshops as well as a registration form.
The overall goal of our grant project was to enable seniors to gain and maintain skills to actively participate in the computer age. We want to continue this effort, so please consider participating in future workshops to become more comfortable with the software your grandchildren use daily!

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.
