Great Amer Smokeout Virtual Cessation Poster 2020 UPDATED.pdf



YMCA of Bucks County
There is a program called Living Active.  It is FREE for adults 65 years of age

and older living in Bucks County.  The program will run for 12 weeks giving access

to whichever branch is closest, access to our private virtual wellness platform,

and opportunity for in-person or virtual social/education (such as nutrition)

meetings via Zoom.


Our hope is to re-engage this population to get them moving and connected again.  Participants will be placed into smaller "family groups" for the Zoom meetings. 


Attached is the link to the website for you to view and share.  While it is FREE, participants must register. Folks can also send an email to livingactivecares@ymcabucks.org asking to be included in the program.

 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.
