GEARS Program updates
Our community and the safety of all residents in it, is our number one concern. With that in mind, GEARS would like to share department status with the community.
Kids Center: With all the information gathered from the department of health, CDC, and the Office of Child Development and Early Learning, GEARS Kids Center closed as of Monday, March 16 at 6 pm. Because we know that families are being impacted financially as well, GEARS will be giving a 50% discount to families from their weekly contracted fee while we are closed. If you are in a position where you are unable to pay the 50%, please contact Beth Miller, Kids Center Director, by email.
Recreation: All GEARS Recreation Classes/Programs are cancelled through April 4, including the Eggstravaganza scheduled April 4. Staff will continue to monitor the environment and will make further cancellations as needed. Staff will be contacting each class with options for cancellations or postponements.
Senior Center: The Elizabethtown Area Senior Center is closed indefinitely. All morning, afternoon, and evening activities are cancelled. Please check the Lancaster County Office of Aging website, the Senior Center website and Facebook page or call the Senior Center for updates. Please don’t let our closure cause you to be hungry or without necessities. Community seniors are encouraged to call the Senior Center for assistance and resources. 717-367-7984.
