Five Things You Need to Know This Week
Patch gives you a rundown of what's going on around the community.
1. Seneca Valley School Board Meeting
2. Martin Luther King Day
Monday, Jan. 21 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. For some, the national holiday honoring the prominent civil rights activist is a time to give back and serve the community, be it through removing graffiti or picking up litter in a local park.
For others, it’s an opportunity to educate themselves about King and his life's work. And for others, it’s a time to just kick back and enjoy a prolonged weekend.
There will be no school for Seneca Valley students Monday because of the holiday. There also is no school Tuesday because it is an in-service day. For a further look at what’s open and what’s closed in the area on Martin Luther King Day, click here.
3. Sanctuary at Sea and Stress Reduction Program
Yoga expert Melanie McConnell will speak on topics such as restorative yoga, meditation and stress reduction from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22 at the Cranberry Public Library inside the township municipal building.
4. Pennsylvania’s Covered Device Recycling Act Kicks Off
The state’s covered device recycling act kicks into action Thursday, Jan. 24. Under its provisions, Waste Management will be prohibited from picking up old TVs, computers and peripheral devices for disposal. Instead, they have to be recycled.
So, where can you go to pitch your devices?
In Cranberry, Best Buy and Goodwill Industries will continue to accept consumer electronics for recycling. In Harmony, the eLoop recycling center at The Center of Harmony on Mercer Street provides an unattended 24/7 drop-off site for computers and household electronics in front of the greenhouse, at the right part of the parking lot.
