Around the 40th District
Congratulations to Pen Argyl Borough Councilman Robert O’Donnell for your many years of service to the Borough and its citizens. I was pleased to join PA State Rep. Marcia Hahn in recognizing you for receiving the Cecil K. Leberknight Award of Service from the Pennsylvania State Boroughs Association. We wish you all the best in the years ahead!
This week I joined Bath Borough in celebrating the opening of their beautiful new Borough municipal building. The new town hall is the culmination of a monumental volunteer effort by skilled area residents who gave much of their time and resources to complete the new location. If you are in the area, make sure to stop in and see the building and the outstanding collection of Borough history on display. We wish Bath Borough a prosperous future!
Joseph Tonnies of Troop 300 in Stroudsburg recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout. He has served his troop in a variety of leadership capacities and, for his Eagle Project, expanded the Faith United Methodist Church Community Garden which services the local food pantry. Well done, Joseph, and thank you for your service to our community.
Congratulations to Magdalene Williams who celebrated her 106th birthday this past Sunday with her family and friends. Happy Birthday, Magdalene, and we wish you many more blessed years.
