While sooooo much good is noted above there is also the bad....there are some who
have no respect for all the time, effort and money people put into making and keeping things nice for our residents.
The good...Penn Township provides a compost site for all to enjoy. Providing a place, easily accessible to all, to get rid of all the unwanted yard waste. Penn Township then grinds and prepares these materials to provide mulch and compost FREE to all.
The bad....what do we get for that, we get all the crap that does not belong at the compost site. Your roofing shingles, your cinder blocks, your transport containers, your flower pots and garbage bags, your treated wood and construction waste etc...this is what will ruin this free service for all of us. Remember this is YOUR compost site, while the police patrol it as they can, you can report any illegal or even suspicious activity. Violators will be prosecuted. If it's not yard waste material, then it is littering!
The good...WOW, have you been to the new park restrooms? This was an 80K project that happened because of the generosity and voluntarism of a select few, who worked their tales off to provide a nice clean modern restroom. What could be better then to have a great day at the park with your sports team, your family for a picnic, moms and their children at the play set, a company picnic, a great place to just hang out with friends.... and boy o boy, what if you need to go to the bathroom, taaadaaaa, there just happens to be a great restroom!
The bad...some have still not learned mature bathroom etiquette. Again, these bathrooms belong to the users of the park...if you see inappropriate behavior by anyone of any age you need to report what you see. I so believe in karma....you can't continue to do wrong and get away with it, just so you know!
Remember, Penn Township belongs to all of us,
let's not allow a few to ruin all the good we have.
Found...a pair of prescription glasses
at the Penn Township compost site.

East Snyder Park News…
The newest project getting ready to take off at the East Snyder Park is the completion of a veteran's memorial monument. This monument will complete an area near the entrance to the park that will be pleasing to the eye and have special meaning to many. The monument will be a perfect way to honor and salute those who sacrificed so much, enabling each of us to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave!
The East Snyder Regional Recreation Association has organized a monogrammed brick sale that will help to fund the completion of the project. All monogrammed bricks will be installed around the base of the monument and will permanently show your support of your favorite veteran(s).
It's been pointed out the bricks can be for anyone and not veterans only. You can show your support of East Snyder Park, its volunteers etc. with your message.
The goal is to sell 350 – 375. Get an order form with all the details and place your order today.
$50 – 4" x 8" brick – up to four lines (see the example)
$100 – 8" x 8" brick – up to eight lines
A scaled drawing of the proposed finished memorial is in the link below.
The park board is always looking for volunteers to....
ADOPT A FLOWER BED
There are about 15 flower beds within the East Snyder Park, each varying in size.
The park and rec board is looking for individuals or groups who would be willing to
take the responsibility for the upkeep of a designated bed or maybe 'just a section' of a larger bed.
This would be a great opportunity to give back to the community,
put your gardening skills to work and add a touch of YOU to the East Snyder Park.
If you or your group are interested please contact the township office at 570-374-4778 or Pete and Cookie DeWire at 570-259-1838.
