From the desk of the Director…
Welcome 2020! Here are a few updates:
- I want to congratulate Gift Card Raffle Winner Barb Mullen for winning the $500 in gift cards.
- I want to thank everyone who supported our Annual Mail Appeal. We will begin listing the many donations we received and will continue to do so through the next few months. Again thank you so much for your support!
- Also we wanted to remind everyone that if you need a ride on our bus, you only need to call one hour before your pick-up.
- Remember to watch KDKA for Center Closing due to bad weather.
- Remember as the days get colder to bring a sweater with you if you get cold easily. We keep the building at 70 degrees but sometimes it can be a little drafty.
Have a great month!
RCAC will be closed on the following days:
Wednesday, January 1, 2020

There will be no congregate or home delivered meals and the RCAC bus will not run those days.
The winter months are here, so tune into KDKA TV for RCAC closings/delays.
