Approximately 100 people attended the Hershey Community Center Open House on Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. to noon. Participants were able to meet Parks & Recreation staff members and view the renderings for the new center, the interior finishes, and masonry samples.
Visitors also had a chance to hear more about the senior center’s role in the new community center and to learn more about the capital campaign for the project. To date, more than 2.7 million dollars have been pledged.
There is still time to purchase event tickets to benefit the project. The Last Dance Luau will be held on April 5 and a three-minute shopping spree at Karns raffle is being organized by 8th grader Cali Oyerly. Tickets to both can be purchased at HersheyCommunityCenter.org. The deadline to purchase raffle tickets is April 5 at midnight.
The community is invited to learn more about the new center and make donations of any amount by visiting HersheyCommunityCenter.org.
