The latest improvements of air conditioning at Edgemont Park House were unveiled on Aug. 8 with a small gathering of public officials, township staff and local senior citizens.

The facility became the home for senior programming in 2012. Other improvements include painting the building’s interior by a local Boy Scout troop, replacing the flooring, installing new doors, windows and security locks; and the installation of new hot water heaters; electrical upgrades; and replacing the leaking roof.

Further improvements to be made include new plumbing and lighting, and the overhaul of the kitchen with new appliances and equipment, which will allow for cooking and baking demonstrations.
