CARLISLE, PA (March 31, 2009) - Have you been planning to visit the Army Heritage and Education Center (AHEC), but couldn't find time during the busy work week? Well, now you can.

With the immense success of last year's initial evaluation of expanded operational hours, AHEC is pleased to announce that it will once again be opening its doors and exhibits for patrons on Saturday's and Sunday's.  Beginning this weekend, AHEC will be open on Saturday's from 10:00a.m. - 4:00p.m., and Sunday's 12:00p.m. - 4:00p.m.

As winter finally comes to an end we will all soon be looking for things to do, and since AHEC is free and open to the public, it could be a perfect opportunity for travelers or local residents to experience all that AHEC has to offer.

After AHEC extended its operating hours to weekends, visitorship increased considerably due to the convenience. We are confident that this year will prove to be another great success.

AHEC, at 950 Soldiers Drive in Carlisle, Pa, is minutes from Interstate 81, the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Routes 11 and 15.
