About a week ago, the Township received a letter from 7 year-old Owen Julian. Owen submitted a plan (along with a diagram) to address the bridge and problematic intersection of Gypsy Hill Road and Long Rifle Road. Owen was invited to attend the March 12th Township meeting with his plan. Board President Mr. Barry Hershey explained to Owen that his plan was actually in line with the Township's plan to address this intersection, right down to the diagram!! Owen was able to take time out of his busy schedule addressing traffic issues to take a photo with his sister Laina (who is also 7 years old), Officer Matt Neidinger and Chief Brian Wiczkowski. Owen, Laina, Jessica and Dave (AKA mom and dad) were given a tour of the police station as well (Owen would have stayed longer but he had to work on other traffic matters). We are confident Owen has a future as a civil engineer if he so desires! Hey Owen, do you think you can work up a plan to present to PennDOT for the traffic issues on Route 222 at Route 30?

Please put the following on our FB page The below information was taken from the PA Breast Cancer Coalition newsletter: The PA Breast Cancer Coalition warns Pennsylvania residents of a potential phone scam during which callers allege they are raising money for “the breast cancer coalition.” While many organizations do ask for contributions over the phone, the PBCC is not one of them. The PA Breast Cancer Coalition never, ever makes phone calls asking for donations. Have you been contacted by an organization pretending to be the PBCC?
