A Message from your Center Manager

January / February 2021


Hi Everyone,Goodbye 2020 and Welcome 2021!


Our Center was very fortunate to be awarded funds from the Cares Fund Act Grant. We were able to pur-chase many items to get our Center open.  Although, the Grant did not give any Operational Expense or Loss of Revenue it did give us fman y things that will benefit us in reopening.  We were able to purchase items for COVID supplies, Furniture and equipment, technology, and services.  I miss everyone and cant wait until the Center is open.  I dont know when that will be, but hopefully in a few months.


We were also awarded $5000.00 from the LaMel Grant.  We desperately needed this money to repair all the corroded Sprinklers on the Outside of the Building.  It only covered half the cost of the project and the Center paid the rest.  With no income coming in it is very hard to maintain the Center.  This had to be done as it was a safety hazard.


We appreciate all the donations that are still coming in. We have the most kind and wonderful Members.  We even had a woman who saw the last Newsletter, who was not a Member, and she wanted to donate.  We still have to pay bills and are so thankful for the donations that are still coming in.  I want to thank the people who have donated since our last Newsletter, Karen and William Curry, Lidi DeGroot, Anne and Thomas Fenley, Margaret Fitzgerald, Deborah and Cliff Goff, James Jenkins, Carol and Terry Kuhns, Faye Lachman, Mary Landes, Margaret Lewis, Jane Loring, James Kain, Anna and Joseph Keliher, Carol and Terry Kuhns, Robert Raffensberger, Lisa Sandler, Rosemary Vesci, Carol and Robert Weaver, Borough of Sellersville, Borough of Silverdale, Telford Foundation, and The Womans Club of Perkasie. Susan and David Wilsey donated money in memory of Shirley Slozer.


If you need anything please give us a call at 215-453-7027.  Even if you just want to talk, we are here for you.


Happy New Year!


Peggy Lewis, Manager
