Pennridge Center News

2nd Qtr 2018

From Your Manager


Is it finally Spring?

I would like all members to look around the Center as the carpeting has been replaced in the Legacy Room, lobby and hallway. It surely gives a new fresh look to the building. It is important that you all feel comfortable here. This also will help us keep the Center up to date for rentals on the weekend. Our center depends on this income to pay many of our operational expenses.                                                                                          

We are bringing in many more new programs. I hope everyone takes advantage of what your Center offers.                                                    

We are also trying to make our dances appealing to everyone, so be sure you check out the dance schedule inside. I would like to thank Buster and Pat Guth for organizing the dances each month. Everyone always has a wonderful time.

We are very happy to welcome all of our new members, and we have gained more than 50 since our last Newsletter!. I would like all members to know that my door is always open, and I am here to make sure everyone can share their ideas to make this a great place.

Spring has finally arrived. Please join us for lunch prepared by Metz Corporation. We serve lunch every day at 11:30 am. You can have lunch in the dining room or enjoy your lunch out on our beautiful patio. If you would like to come for lunch you must sign up in Copilot. All lunch reservations must be submitted by 11:30 am Wednesday, the week before you want to have lunch. The suggested lunch donation is $2.00.                                                                                  

Egg Carton Donations I am looking for donations of your empty egg cartons. You can leave them with the receptionist at the front desk or bring them to the dining room. If no one is in the Kitchen leave your egg cartons on the Hutch in the dining room.                                                                                                                                                                    

Chinese New Year Lunch I want to thank Huong Nguyen for cooking this wonderful Chinese New Year Meal and Sue Overbaugh for volunteering for this event.                                                                                                                    

Soup and Sandwich Lunch I want to thank Carol Shultz for cooking a wonderful Soup and Sandwich Meal. I would also like to thank Rodney Shultz, Pat Andrews and Carol Sharkey for volunteering for this event.                          

Breakfast for Lunch We will be cooking breakfast for lunch sometime at the end of the month in May or June. It will be held on a Thursday or Friday. Flyers will be posted on the easel in the lobby, on the cork board in front of the legacy room, and in the dining room. Stop in the Center and check these locations to sign up for this event. The cost for this event is $5.00 which will go to help support our Center. We will be serving potatoes, sausage, bacon, toast, and choice of eggs, (scrambled, fried, cheese omelet or a breakfast sandwich). I will also be making homemade funny cake, shoo fly pie, coffee cake, and cinnamon buns. If you like to bake and want to make any of these desserts let me know. The receptionist will have the signup sheets. Seats for this event will be limited.                                                                          

Penny Party Our Third Annual Penny Party will be held on Sunday, October 14, 2018, at 1:00. We need donations for this event. The items should be new. If you have gifts you received and can’t use, please donate them. If you have gift cards you received and aren’t using, please donate them. We can take collectibles and slightly used items. Food that isn’t expired is also acceptable. We are taking donations now. You can leave your donations at the front desk with the receptionist. Please let the receptionist know they are for the Penny Party. If we do not get enough donations for this event, I will have to cancel the Penny Party. This is a fun event for the entire family. Please do what you can to help support this fundraiser for our Center. This event was a huge success last year with a profit of $2,845.00.

Thank you for all your support. Without you, we could not have these events. You are the Best!

Peggy Lewis
