AIR CONDITIONING UPDATE
We are happy to announce that the air conditioning is fully operational! We should see a cooler summer at Century House.
Please be mindful that it will be cooler all over Century House so here’s some tips:
- Bring a sweater with you in case you get cold.
- Check overhead and don’t situate yourself under a vent if you don’t like the cool breeze.
- Please do not adjust the air conditioning units – ask staff.
- If the AC is a problem for your group, please ask your activity chairperson to speak with staff.
Thank you & Stay Cool…..Any questions please speak with staff in the office.
