Hi Neighbors!
    The local Crime Watch is active again. Crime Watch is a citizen-based group with the mission that as neighbors help neighbors we
can work together to make our community a safer place to live. Won’t you join us in our endeavors?

    Meetings will resume in September. Dates & times will follow. Our goal is to provide free or low cost events throughout the year to
strengthen our family and community relationships so that in times of need we can be there for reach other- neighbors helping neighbors.
       Volunteers are needed to man the games at Kids’ Day. Please contact me if interested at 497-8744. I invite you to come on July

                                             WOOD RECYCLING
    A Recycling Grant provided the funds for the Township to purchase a large wood
         chipper so that residents have a way to dispose of limbs and branches.
             Please DO NOT bring the following with your wood recycling:
                               NO Briars         NO Vines             NO Stumps         NO Roots
   These items are unsafe for chipping & may also damage the chipper blades.
       Contact the office for availability of free wood chips for your gardens & trails.
