A Message From Your Manager

November / December 2019


Welcome to the Center, everyone!  We hope you are all enjoying autumn so far and looking forward with gratitude to the many holidays coming up in the next couple of months.


I would like to officially inform everyone that we have had a change in management at our Center in October, and I have now moved into the position of Manager for the Center. Prior to this move, I was Assistant Manager for our Center for the past five years. I met a lot of people in the past five years, and I hope to meet more. The Center means a lot to me. My heart is here at our Center. I will continue to be there for everyone. I am proud of our Members and Volunteers and want to thank every one of you for making our Center what it is today.


I would like to officially announce and welcome Carol Kuhns as our Center’s New Assistant Manager. Carol and her husband Terry, have been long time residents of Perkasie and members of our Center. They have three children and four grandchildren. Some of you may know Carol from her long-time career as a Pharmacist Technician in Perkasie. Carol worked for Thrift Drug Store which is now Rite Aid for over 51 years.


I would also like to announce and welcome Steve Taylor as our new Building Attendant. Steve is a long-time resident of Bedminster and a member of our Center. Steve and his wife, Linda, have three children and two grandchildren. You will know Steve when you see him. Steve will be the guy who always has a smile on his face and there to lend a hand when needed. Steve will be taking the place of Ed McManus. Ed has been our Building Attendant for many years. During those years he has gone over and beyond to make every event run smoothly. Ed isn’t leaving the Center, just stepping down as Building Attendant. Thank you, Ed, for everything.


On Sunday, October 27th, our Center had our first Designer Bag Bingo. I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to make it a huge success! It was pouring down rain and everyone still came out to support us. Thank you for your continued support.


For our first Historical Program of 2020, it will be “Perkasie Firsts”. We welcome Rick Doll of the Perkasie Historical Society. The presentation will start at noon, on January 15th. Bring a friend or   two and enjoy a wonderful day out.                                                                                                     

Ted Heimbach has worked on the Newsletter since 2012. After almost 8 years, he deserves to pass the torch onto the next editor (and Thank You, Ted!). This ‘job’ typically can take up to 30 hours to prepare in the way it is done currently, but we will be switching to an entire new system. The new Newsletters will be in color and will have ads, as we will be switching to an external company who will be managing the ads and formatting the articles into a finished product.  Dale Roades will be working with an external company, and as a new venture, there may be a bump in the road until everyone is comfortable. Also, the Newsletter will still be mailed to members, so keep your membership current.                                                                                                                                       

Have a safe and Happy Holiday!


Peggy Lewis
