After School Program

The Donald L. Heiter Community Center offers an academic enrichment After School program, which provides resources and assistance to children with homework assignments. Following the study hour, participants enjoy supervised play time in our 5,200-square-foot facility, which includes a library, air hockey, foosball, and pool tables, and a gymnasium with basketball hoops, jump ropes, and hula hoops. Kids love the unstructured play time, and parents love that homework is done for the night! While we are open to children from all school districts, the program follows the Lewisburg Area School District calendar, and only provides busing from the Lewisburg schools.

Contra Dance Sessions

Contra dancing is easy and energetic, mostly involving a smooth walking step. It is a traditional dance form rooted in Irish, English, and Scottish jigs, reels, and waltzes that is set to music that makes you want to move. The caller teaches and calls all the steps, accompanied by spirited live music. Newcomers of all ages are always welcome, with or without a partner. Please wear comfortable clothes and soft-soled, non-marking shoes. For more information call Betsy Noyce or Jeff Scheckter at (570) 524-2104 or visit us at to see the callers and musicians scheduled, or on Facebook Countryside Contra Dancers for photos and a short video.
