The first big snowstorm covered Wayne in several inches of snow Friday into Saturday.

Department of Public Works personnel were plowing the streets throughout the day.

Roadways were covered with several inches of snow Friday night into Saturday morning. It was possible to drive on roads Friday morning and into the early afternoon. After the snow picked up intensity Friday afternoon there were fewer and fewer vehicles on the roads.

George, I just checked and couldn't find an answer to your question. If I were a betting man, I would think that the center would not be open on Sunday. I would think it would be open on Monday. For more information call 973-694-1800, ext. 3315.
