Pennridge Center News

4th Qtr 2017

From Your Manager


I am excited to say that the center has 44 new members since our last newsletter. Our new members seem very enthusiastic about getting started with their choice of classes. Some are coming for lunch and are meeting new friends and having fulfilling conversations. Several new members have joined because of the wonderful destinations we have chosen to offer. Recently, I talked to a new couple who were looking forward to our entertaining shows and presentations. We wish to welcome all our new members.

With the newsletter being quarterly, some of our presentations do not get into print. Please visit our website and check out the display boards in the lobby to be sure nothing is missed.

I am so happy to see the wonderful turnout at all of our events. This is due in part to our new volunteer advertising coordinator Rosemary Wagner. Thank you, Rosemary, for all the work you do.

We are blessed with a center that continues to grow.

I wish all our members much happiness and good health through this holiday   season.

Summer is over and now it’s time to enjoy the beautiful Autumn colors.

Our picnic turned out really well. Everyone enjoyed Big Guys Food Truck. We will have a picnic every year. If you have an idea for next year’s picnic come see me or Debbie. Big thanks go out to the following Volunteers for all their help: Carol Tyson, Frances Lange, Sue Overbaugh, Carol Shultz, Rod Shultz, Pat Strogis, and Ted Heimbach.

On a separate page of this Newsletter, there is a copy of the Bingo game I created for you to play. My goal in creating this game is to get our members more familiar with our center. Rules and prizes are on the Bingo page. Go have fun and good luck. The winners will be announced in the next Newsletter.

Also, don't forget the Holiday Cash Raffle on November 19, and the Christmas Banquet on December 13.

From Your Newsletter Editor


Here is the first issue of our quarterly issue! We hope you like it - it has been reorganized and it is easier to follow through the three months.

As a third month is now included, there will always be items missed, as things change or are added post-printing. Please keep checking the Center lobby for items posted, as well as our website ( ), or call the Center. Also, another great place to keep up to date is by attending the Membership Meetings on the third Wednesday of each month at noon.
