Do you know that there are at least 14 recognized religious holidays in December? Certainly, Christmas and Hanukkah are the most widely celebrated in our area, but there are others, too. So whether you prefer Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or just Season's Greetings, the sentiment is likely the same - a wish for a joyful time spent honoring your faith, beloved traditions and celebrating with family and friends as another year draws to a close and we prepare to tackle a new one!

Wishing our residents a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year,

Rod Myers, Bill Holtry and Mike Dattilo, Township Trustees

Next Park Meeting is Thursday January 12th at  7 p.m.
  At our most recent Park Meeting, committees were formed to focus on various aspects of park planning. We are so fortunate to have residents who are interested, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Thank you. The next meeting to discuss planning for the park will be held Thursday, January 12th at 7:00 p.m. where we  hope to see even more residents in attendance who'd like to be involved with the planning and creation of a township park .

In preparation for our meeting, the township is getting bids to refurbish the old silo in the hopes that it will be a focal point for the new park.

We've said before - this is a resident driven initiative, and we are only in the beginning stages, so don't feel like it is too late to contribute; We are just getting started, and we're dependent on your skill sets, energy and talents to see this park become a reality.
