More hot weather is upon us. Montgomery Township will make the Otto Kaufman Community Center available as a cooling center this Friday and Monday. 

Please let neighbors & friends in town know the cooling center is available, especially for any older residents or families with young children. 

Residents are welcome to come in, read, rest, play a board game, do paperwork - in other words COOL OFF! Any question, please call the Recreation Dept. at (609) 466-3023.

At this time it is not anticipated that the Montgomery Cooling Center will be open over the weekend.  We recommend visiting libraries, malls, friends or family, and other air conditioned or cool locations if you do not otherwise have access to air conditioning during the hottest part of the day.
