50% off Thrift Sale and Shredding Event Results

 We appreciate and want to thank our Members and Community for supporting our Shredding Event and our 50% off Thrift Sale. I want to thank the Volunteers who volunteered their time to help us at these events. The Shredding Event Volunteers, were Janice Jaeger, Ed McManus, Lowell (Skeeter) Musselman, Carol Shultz, and Rod Shultz. The Thrift Sale Volunteers, were Bob Frank, Elaine Frank, Jane Loring, Ed McManus, Lowell (Skeeter) Musselman, Carol Shultz, Rod Shultz, and Pat Siwert. Assistant Manager, Carol Tyson, and Manager Peggy Lewis, volunteer their time to help out at all events.

So many people complimented us on how well organized and clean everything was. All the credit goes to Carol Shultz and Rod Shultz. They worked for weeks preparing for the Thrift Sale. It was their hard work and dedication that made this event successful. 

We also received many compliments on how helpful and kind our Volunteers were. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful and dedicated Volunteers.

 Senior Farmers Market Voucher Applications Now Available

 The Bucks County Area Agency on Aging (BCAAA) has partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to bring fresh, locally grown produce to county seniors.

 Through the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP), eligible seniors can receive vouchers valued at $24 for individuals or $48 for couples. Vouchers can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables at participating farmers markets through November.

 Eligible seniors reside in Bucks County, will be 60 or older by the end of the year and meet annual income requirements. The individual income limit is $28,828; the limit for couples is $32,227. Income includes wages, rental income, Social Security, child support payments, retirement plan distributions, and other forms of income.

 Aluminum Cans

Did you know there is a re-cycling bin for the Silverdale community and our Center for aluminum cans for recycling? This very long dumpster is in the back of the parking lot, where you can bring only your aluminum cans. Please don’t bring anything else to put in the re-cycling bin. It’s only for aluminum cans.

The proceeds from recycling are then donated to the Center by the Silverdale Borough Council. Thank You!

 Center Closures

The Center will be closed for National Holidays.

Please refer to your Newsletter or our online Calendar for specific information.

 

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, as does www.6ABC.com (TV station).


NOTICE - If the school district opens late the Center will also open late, by the same

number of hours.  Also, if the school district closes early, the center will close

early, by the same number of hours.  If the weather is bad and if the Center is open,

use common sense if you decide to drive to the Center.


CBS3 carries school closings online ahttp://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/schools/.  

 

You may also call the Center at 215-453-7027 or 215-453-7028.
