The Board of Commissioners of Armstrong County and the Progressive Workshop of Armstrong County would like to thank everyone who participated in our 20th Anniversary Open House Saturday May 9th. The event kicked off with the progressive Workshop CEO Len Meneely providing an overview of the history of the Center.
Guest speakers, State Representative Jeff Pyle, State Representative Donna Oberlander, Commissioner Dave Battaglia and Independent Recycling Services President George Jucha, Jr. all congratulated the Progressive Workshop on the successful program that they operated at the Center as well as the 20 years of service the Center has provided.
In addition to the guest speaker, attendees were provided an opportunity to learn about composting and were provided tours of the Center. The children that attended learned how to sort materials collected at the Center and made fish out of recycled #1 bottles.
