6/27/2014 - We have been told that the Gas Companyís Contractor will
start the McKinley Ave project on Monday, June 30. We have not been told
where on McKinley they will start or when they will actually start digging.

this will require our Centerís closing but it will affect access to the
Center. We expect detours, parking limitations, and some difficulty
crossing streets. We will keep you informed as the construction progresses.
The entire project will take nine months to complete.
Much of what we do here at the center is accomplished by our members and
volunteers. We ask our members and volunteers to help make a difference for
everyone at the center. There are opportunities in many areas and programs
for people to lend a helping hand. There is no greater reward than the smile
on someone's face for helping to make a difference in their life.
If you are interested in volunteering or
lending a helping hand, please contact the Supervisor at (724)
