Rep. Takac hosts press conference to announce $85,000 in funding for upgrades to Moshannon Community Center in Snow Shoe

STATE COLLEGE, June 1 – State Rep. Paul Takac, D-Centre, presented the Moshannon Community Center in Snow Shoe with an $85,000 check representing recently secured funding for upgrades to the center.

Takac said the funds – which will be used to improve drainage and upgrade lighting, energy efficiency and accessibility – will enhance an important gathering place for the community.

“Every community benefits from having a place to host family-friendly events like weddings, dinners and other celebrations. These much-needed upgrades will help create a more welcoming and accessible venue here in Snow Shoe,” Takac said. “I promised to do all I could to assist the Mountaintop community, and this is another step in making good on that commitment.”

Snow Shoe Township Supervisor Rodney Preslovich said, “
All the Snow Shoe Township supervisors appreciate Rep. Takac’s support for the Mountaintop Community. This specific project will be a huge benefit to families in our area, and I look forward to continued progress on improving the quality of life for residents here in Snow Shoe.”


Beth Watson, Treasurer of the Moshannon Community Center, said, “I am so grateful we were able to get the funding to do some long overdue repairs to the property.”

Funding for the project comes from the Commonwealth Financing Authority via Local Share Account award funding. Takac
recently helped secure more than $1.5 million in LSA funding for the 82nd Legislative District, including more than $1.15 million for communities in the Mountaintop area of northern Centre County.


The district includes the townships of Benner, Boggs, Burnside, College, Curtin, Harris, Howard, Liberty, Marion, Snow Shoe and Union, and the boroughs of Howard, Milesburg, Snow Shoe and State College.

Local Share Account funding was created by the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act (Act 71 of 2004), which provides for the distribution of gaming revenues through the CFA to support projects in the public interest.
