Mission: * Vision Statement of Old Gregg School Community and Recreation Center * For over 80 years the Old Gregg School building in Spring Mills educated children and young adults throughout eastern Penns Valley in the time-honored values and responsibilities of community and service. The traditions of the historic Gregg Township School have been celebrated and expanded in the Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center, which is now a multi-purpose, non-profit facility benefiting the entire Penns Valley Community. Supporting small businesses with affordable office space, athletic facilities for recreation, open space for meetings and events (both indoors and out), and lovingly maintained grounds and outdoor play areas, Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center is regarded as a treasure in the heart of Penns Valley. While our immediate vision included a licensed preschool and pre-k facilities for working families, affordable office space for start-ups within a short commute of State College (with wireless internet available), certified kitchen facilities for area food businesses, a lending library supported by local Scout organizations, and low-cost basketball and exercise facilities ... Old Gregg School has since expanded and now includes the following businesses, non-profits, and community groups: Local Businesses, Non-Profits, Community Groups, and Other Organizations Currently Located At Old Gregg School: Local Businesses: The Underground Fitness Center and Gymnasium KarpFit A New Day Personal Fitness See Me Go! Kids' Fitness Zumba Classes by Stacy Garbrick Local Non-Profits: Penns Valley Community Church (PVCC) Penns Valley Youth Center (Operated by PVCC) Pennsylvania Certified Organic (PCO) TriYoga® Center of Central Pennsylvania Thrifty Tailz 'n Pawz, Inc. Osher Life Long Learning Institute (OLLI) Classes Local Community Groups: Senior Citizen Activities Group at OGS Nittany Valley Model Railroad Local Government: Gregg Township Office The future is open to the vision of the community as a whole, as The Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center carries on a tradition of local community service into a new century.

[03/17/20]   The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday night recommended that no gatherings with 50 people or more take place for the next eight weeks to slow the spread of the novel Corona Virus (COVID-19).
It is with great regret that the Old Gregg School Advisory Board has to announce that this year’s Spring Craft Fair will be cancelled.

Notice: The Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center will be closed for at least the next two weeks. Gregg Township will continue to monitor the situation surrounding the coronavirus and will update the closure as needed.

Township Update: Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center

As Gregg Township navigates these unprecedented times surrounding the coronavirus, we will be taking steps to ensure that we are upholding our responsibility for the safety and wellness of our community. We have been carefully observing the information and mandates being established at the State and Local levels, as well as communicating with the local and county Emergency Management Association.

Out of an abundance of precaution, in consideration of the safety of our community, the Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center will be closed for the next two weeks to all non-tenant use beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 until at least Saturday March 28, 2020. During which time, Gregg Township will monitor the ongoing situation and determine whether the closure will be expanded.

The Gregg Township office will still be available via electronic communication, either through email or phone, as well as through in-person appointments if necessary. Please consider the well-being of the township employees, should you need an in-person appointment.

In an effort to continue to support our community as needs arise, and in communication with local resources concerning access to food for our community, there may be specified dates and times when there will be food distribution available either on the front exterior sidewalk or in the main lobby of the community center. Such dates and times will be posted on the Gregg Township website (www.greggtownship.org) and on the Gregg Township page.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to adjust to the changes.

Please contact the Gregg Township office with any questions or concerns:

Spring Mills 1931...

Some of you have been wondering what’s the significance of the purple ribbons hanging around the Old Gregg School this month.

Purple ribbons were hung by the HOPE (Heroin Opioid Prevention Education) initiative. The HOPE initiative is hoping to bring awareness to the issue of Substance Abuse in Centre County by celebrating National Recovery Month this September.

HOPE is hosting “clumps" of purple ribbons, with each ribbon representing a life lost in Centre County to overdose since 2014. Each ribbon has a tag with information and a message that HOPE is just a phone call away providing a local number to call to get help in addressing a substance use disorder.
