Spending time together here at the Center during the holidays has always been such a big part of celebrating the holiday season. This year, COVID 19 has changed everything, with many events and activities being cancelled.  In consideration of the recent rise in positive COVID testing here in Cambria County we have made the difficult decision to further limit Center openings in November and December. Our County Administrator, PEN Board members and staff struggled with the decision but your safety and that of the staff must continue to be the priority.  In an effort to ensure his continued safety, Dr. Talbot has also made decision not to return to the Center for Open Art. I know that many of you will be disappointed with the extremely scaled down version of what we normally do, but we remain hopeful and optimistic that 2021 will be a better year!
