We'd like to thank everyone who came to the Party in the Park last Sunday. Even with the hot temperatures, we loved seeing so many folks enjoying your new park. As Bill Holtry mentioned in his remarks, it's hoped a gathering like this can become an annual event - perhaps an anniversary affair for the Berkshire Community Park.

It took a huge effort on the part of the Township staff, trustees and resident volunteers to turn a vision into a reality. We're grateful to every person and organization for their help. A special thanks goes to the Delaware County Master Gardeners whose generous donation to the Learning Garden kicked off its creation, and to the United Way of Delaware County for the beautiful Born Learning Trail. Through their partnership with the Big Walnut High School National Art Honor Society and the Delaware Campus of Columbus State Community College, it's easy for us to claim "The Best Born Learning Trail around!"

One more important announcement - this coming Tuesday (10/3) at 6:00 p.m. the County and NBBJ will hold a special meeting to gather input from Berkshire Township residents on the future planning and development of the 36-37 corridor between Delaware City and Sunbury. Please try to attend this meeting, as our township is a major stakeholder in this corridor and we want your voices heard. This is not about a southern exit - it IS about improving the corridor that already exists. It will be held at the Township Hall.
