With more triple-digit dry heat on tap Tuesday afternoon, the City of Redlands reminded residents without air conditioning they can find relief at Joslyn Senior Center and the Redlands Community Center.
"It may be fall, but it still feels like summer, with high temperatures in Redlands expected to continue until the weekend," city spokesman Carl Baker said in a statement. "As temperatures heat up, the Joslyn Senior Center, Community Senior Center and the Community Center are cooling down."
The Joslyn Senior Center is located at 21 Grant St. in Redlands. The Redlands Community Center and Senior Center are located at 111 W. Lugonia Ave.
"These cool centers offer pleasurable, informative, and enlightening programs in a relaxed and secure environment," Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said in a statement. "People in the community are encouraged to enjoy the day away from their high temperature homes and come down to either Senior Center Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or the Community Center Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. to beat the heat."
Activities at include: puzzles, cards and games, craft class, exercise class, and more, Baker said. All activities are free. The centers also offer movies on Tuesday and Friday, with popcorn and punch.
City officials exhorted residents looking for respite from the heat:
"Join us for all the fun! Spend the day in air conditioning!"
