May 10, 2019

Pennsylvania National Guard armories and readiness centers are available for rent, according to the state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.

The department maintains the facilities. When not being used for training, many are available to be rented by the public, including the armory in Friedens.

“These facilities are spacious with plenty of parking and handicap accessibility, making them ideal for reunions, fundraisers, birthday parties, or any other community event,” Marc Ferraro, DMVA’s deputy for facilities and engineering, said in a press release. “We welcome people to give us a call to discuss the possibility of renting an armory or readiness center in their town.”

People can inquire about the availability of a center by calling the Office of Facilities and Engineering at 717-861-8581.
