 Pennridge Reopening

Masks are not required, but are strongly recommended if you are not fully vaccinated. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask, we fully support your decision to do so. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building. Increased cleaning protocols are in place. We strongly recommend that participants follow proper handwashing and respiratory etiquette. Please note, if guidelines for wearing masks change, our Center may be required to ask everyone to wear a mask.

  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/.  

 

You may also call the Center at 215-453-7027 or 215-453-7028.
