PENNRIDGE COMMUNITY CENTER TEMPORARILY CLOSED
Update mARCH 15, 2019:
The damage from the burst water pipe occurred on February 3, damaging a large part of the Center. The insurance company has released some money to the Center, and once it is in the account, the contractors will be hired. This may happen late the week of March 18. If so we are hoping the restoration will progress quickly. When the time is correct, the Executive Board will have a schedule for resuming the Legacy Room classes, followed by classes and activities in the classrooms as they are restored and not interfering with any on-going construction, if this is feasible.
As we said before, please bear with us - we can't wait until the restoration is complete and everyone is back in the Center! And we will be having an Open House when we are back to normal.
Burst Pipe Causes Closure
PERKASIE, PA (February 20, 2019) – The Pennridge Community Center has announced that due to a water issue originating in the conference room at the Center, all classes and activities have been cancelled for the immediate future. A pipe which burst on February 3, 2019, flooded a hallway and eight rooms/offices, as well as part of the lobby. The water saturated the carpeting throughout these areas, and it destroyed most everything on the floors. Damage is substantial, and water remediation was done immediately, taking five full days to dry the floors and affected walls. Other items affected by the water included desks, bookshelves, a plaque designating outstanding volunteers, books, and other assorted items. The Center is working to repair the damage sustained.
The Center would like to be back to a fairly normal schedule in March. The Legacy Room, a 172-person capacity large community room, was not damaged, although it and the rooms which were affected cannot be used until the restoration is complete. These rooms include offices, an art room, computer room, billiards room, library, and conference room.
Once the Center has been restored, the Center plans to hold an Open House to welcome the communities back into the Center. The Open House date has yet to be determined. The Center’s Executive and Advisory Boards will post information about the timing of the Open House in the Center’s Legacy Room in local newspapers, on Facebook, and on their website, www.pennridgecenter.org.
