 Senior Expo held at Pennridge Community Center

On November 20th, a Senior Expo, was held at our Center, sponsored by State Representative   Shelby Labs, PA House of Representatives. Exhibitors were on hand to provide information and answer questions important to Seniors. A consumer protection presentation including how to best protect yourself from scams was given as well. Also, she and her staff were available to apply for a SEPTA Senior Pass—both new applications and renewals. We were so happy to see such a wonderful turnout. There were 361 people who attended, and 159 of the 361 attendees were our members. Thank you!

Trips at Pennridge 

 

  Aluminum Cans

Did you know there is a re-cycling bin for the Silverdale community and our Center for aluminum cans for recycling? This very long dumpster is in the back of the parking lot, where you can bring only your aluminum cans. Please don’t bring anything else to put in the re-cycling bin. It’s only for aluminum cans.

The proceeds from recycling are then donated to the Center by the Silverdale Borough Council. Thank You!

 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.


CBS3 carries school closings online ahttp://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/schools/.
