Palmer Township Says Thank You to Duke Realty and Lowe's Home Improvement Store Employees

 

Many organizations and corporations participate annually in a Community Service Day.  April 16, 2015 was declared Community Service Day for the employees of Duke Realty.

 

Duke Realty, located in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania contacted Palmer Township to inquire about possible community service projects available for their employees to perform in the township.  Shown in the photos below are Duke Realty employees that participated in painting the restrooms at the Palmer Township Athletic Complex on Green Pond Road.

 

Duke Realty is a commercial real estate company that is committed to providing value and reliability in commercial real estate projects.  They are currently involved in new construction in the Palmer Township Industrial Park in the north end of the township.

Palmer Municipal Fire Department to Honor Fallen Soldier and Family

 

The Palmer Township Municipal Fire Department, in partnership with the Bethlehem Township Fire Companies, will be supporting a special detail for fallen soldier, Sgt. Durkin and his family on Saturday, May 23, 2015.  Sgt. Durkin was deployed with the 82nd Airborne when he was killed-in-action in 2010.  Sgt. Durkin's comrades from the unit never had an opportunity to pay their respects, until now.  On Saturday, May 23, beginning at 10:15 a.m. members of his unit will be escorted from the Marriot Hotel in Bethlehem Township, down Freemansburg Avenue, enroute to his final resting place in Easton.  The 82nd Airborne will be escorted by the Warriors Watch Riders.  Residents are encouraged to come out and line Freemansburg Avenue in support of one of our local fallen soldiers.

Riparian Buffers for the Bushkill Creek Watershed

 

The Bushkill Streams Conservancy is an organization that works to protect the Bushkill Creek. As the township's eastern border this creek is a very important environmental resource in our township. Through the years this creek has also become an important recreation area with the Penn Pump Park and the bike/walking path that parallels the creek from the northern boarder with Tatamy to the south boarder with Easton and Wilson. The protection of the creek is very important and the Conservancy has developed a publication focusing on creating and maintaining riparian buffers along the creek.
