 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.
