Pennridge Community Center
State Grants Won!
Our Center won two state grants recently. The first will be to replace the existing computers with iPads, laptops, and All-in-One computers, as well as to add a Mimio smart board. We will be offering 6 courses in November/December and then again in the spring, on Word, Excel, PhotoShop, PaintShop, Publisher and how to use an iPad. A nutritional program will also be offered, incorporating the use of computers to track food intake and more. On Friday, October 24, Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley visited the Center to congratulate us on winning both grants. He also toured the Center.
Our second grant will be to rebuild our patio floor, add a stair-glide to the basement to accommodate those who can't navigate the stairs, and to add ceiling fans in the Legacy Room to better control the temperature.
Come out to the Center to enroll in our computer classes, the nutritional program, and to see the changes to our building (tentatively scheduled for the spring).

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.
