You’re Invited! October 6th Homecoming Football Tailgate
The Center for Adult & Continuing Education (CACE) invites you to join us for our Homecoming Football Tailgate starting at 11 am in the North Gate parking area of the main campus. Enjoy great food at our tent, play outdoor games, listen to good music, and help us gear up for the 1 pm football game versus Alvernia at Mangelsdorf Field. Every guest is automatically entered into our drawing for a $50 Fun & Fitness gift certificate, good toward any of our fall programs. This tailgate is free and open to the public, but reservations are required by October 1 by emailing or calling 570-674-6289.

Important Note: Part of the Anderson Center indoor walking track will be temporarily closed until further notice. Most of the track is still accessible for use, but please be aware of the area that's closed and stay clear. Thanks for your understanding.
