Souderton Hometown Heroes Banners- Active Service Men & Women are Welcome to get banners too!

Written by Laura Office on . Posted in Front Page, News

The Souderton Hometown Heroes Banner Program is a living tribute created for the community to recognize and honor our Veterans who are serving or are veterans who have served our country in the United States Armed Forces.

To qualify, a Veteran, living or deceased, must have had a connection to Souderton (attended local schools, relative, friend, etc…) at some point in his or her life, also those honored on War Memorials and Veterans recommended by the local VFW and American Legion Posts.

The Banner will be 24” x 48” heavy vinyl, printed the same on both sides, and will display the service person’s photograph, include their full name, branch of the Military and the era of service (WWI, WWII, Vietnam, etc.) Banners will be displayed from May through Veterans Day in November in observance of all Military Branch birthdays.  Banners will be removed and stored until the same period in the following year at which time they will be redisplayed.

Each Banner requires the Hometown Hero Form to be filled out, a photograph of the Hero in uniform and a payment of $130.00 for each banner, payable to: Hometown Heroes. Click here to download form.

Earth Day – 2018 Community Clean Up- THANK YOU!!!

Written by nucitrus on . Posted in Front Page, News

Approximately 110 volunteers gathered on Saturday April 21th to participate in the community clean up.

Earth Day began in 1970 to create awareness for the Earth’s environment. Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22.

Souderton Borough volunteers worked together on Saturday April 21, 2018 in the Souderton Community Park, the Souderton Pool, the Clock, Borough Building and Chestnut St Park. Volunteers helped beautify the town by raking leaves, picking up trash, weeding the beds, and spreading mulch to enhance the community for upcoming gatherings.

The event started at 9 am with volunteers being treated to coffee.  After working hard from 9 am to 12 noon volunteers were treated to lunch.  Served for lunch was pizza, pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, coleslaw, and beverages.  The pizza was donated by Broad St Pizza and other food was donated by Jesse’s Barbecue and Local Market both of Souderton. The beverages were donated by Jim and Martha Leary of Souderton.

Several groups volunteered including The Variety Club of Worcester, Boy Scout Troops 14 and 256, IV & Souderton Democrats, Univest, the Souderton Collaborative and Zwingli UCC. In addition to the groups of volunteers there were several local residents, borough staff and borough councilors.

The Borough would like to say thank you to the many volunteers for their hard work in making the town look so great. A special thank you to Jesse’s Barbecue and Local Market, Broad St Pizza and Jim and Martha Leary for their gifts of great food and drinks.

Below are some pictures of the event.

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lansdale, Pa- March 28, 2018– During the week of April 8, 2018, the North Penn Water Authority (NPWA) will commence its annual fire hydrant inspection and flushing program that runs through May 27, 2018. Annual inspection and flushing of fire hydrants increase public safety by ensuring that hydrants will function when called upon in the case of a fire. Flushing of hydrants also improves water quality by removing the build-up of materials from the inside of water distribution pipes.

“The Authority is dedicated to providing all of our customers with quality drinking water and reliable fire protection which is why NPWA inspects and flushes all of the fire hydrants in our distribution system every year,” said Anthony J. Bellitto, Jr., Executive Director of North Penn Water Authority.

Flushing will take place at night between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. and during the day between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The following is a tentative flushing schedule:

  • April 8th through April 24th: Lansdale, Hatfield and New Britain Boroughs, Hatfield, Upper Gwynedd and New Britain Townships
  • April 24th through May 20th: Skippack, Worcester, Lower Salford, Franconia, Salford and Towamencin Townships 
  • May 13th through May 27th: Sellersville Borough 
  • May 20th through May 27th: Souderton Borough and Hilltown Township

If water discoloration occurs, customers should run the cold water for a few minutes. If the water does not clear up, customers should turn the tap off for 10 to 20 minutes and then run the water again for a few minutes.  Customers who experience persistent discolored water or reductions in water pressure should call the Authority’s Customer Service Department at 215-855-3617 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.       Contact:  Maryann Regan 215-855-3617 mregan@npwa.org
