Riegelsville begins planning for 100th anniversary
Riegelsville's Historical Society is preparing for the Upper Bucks town's centennial celebration which will take place in 2016.
The announcement appears in the borough's fall newsletter, which was mailed to residents and handed out at the September borough council meeting.
Residents are asked to participate by providing old photographs, postcards, yearbooks, magazine and newspaper articles, pamphlets, and stories about Riegelsville.
With the owner's permission, a high-resolution copy of the item will be produced, and in return, donors will receive a tax-deductible donor receipt. More details about the event will be forthcoming.
Prior to business being conducted at the Sept. 11 meeting, President Thomas Stinnett asked for "a moment of silence for the 911 victims."
Mayor Gregory Stokes reported that he is concerned about speeding on Route 611. Stokes said he was in touch with the State Police. “They recently held a safety check in the borough and were stopping people," Stokes said.
Council members approved a check for $17,275 to Power Pools Plus Inc, for the Well 3 generator. In addition, a check for $749 was approved for P3 Generator Services, also for Well 3 generator service and maintenance. The board okayed a $500 check for Eastern Upper Bucks Senior Cente.
No word was given on whether the borough will participate in the D&L Trail Towns. The venture will promote the use of the trail works with residents and business owners adjacent to the trail to strengthen business practices and bring more customers to the community.
The program also encourages exercise for improving health and to preserve the green trail cooridor. The trail towns program begins this fall.
A presentation was recently given by D&L representative Barbara Swanda. Council members told Swanda they needed more information in order to make a decision.
The board recently approved appointments of Erica Sommer and Kate Brandes to the Riegelsville Library board of trustees. A wine festival is scheduled for Oct. 5.
