We hope you are all well during this unprecedented time. As Chester County moves into the Green Phase of re-opening, we are pleased to be able to open our building once again at 50% capacity.  However, knowing that the risks of COVID-19 are still very much present and real, it is imperative that the Melton Center and all of our visitors take every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of our staff, patrons, and community.  We ask for your patience, understanding and support while we get through this as a community. We are a small business/Non-Profit directly affected by this current situation and we are doing our best to make it through this difficult time.  We promise you will be the first to know when we have an update. In the meantime, our offices will be closed until further notice with limited administrative capacity. We very much look forward to seeing everyone when this is over! Thank you in advance of your full cooperation during these trying times. If you have any questions, please email Renee at rwashington@meltoncenter.org, Jackie at info@meltoncenter.org, or Ken Winston kennethwinston1@comcast.net. Office HoursMonday – Thursday 10-4 

Please stay safe and well,
Sincerely, Charles A. Melton Arts & Education Center
