  1. What is the address? This should be part of the announcement. You could also mention if the applicant needs to bring documents such as ID, birth certificate or references.

    1. Hello. The Cecile Community Center is located at 174 W Seneca Turnpike, Syracuse, NY 13205. The main thing mentioned is that candidates should have multiple copies of their resumes available to share with each department. Thank you.
