I personally think we are losing the historical aspect of the community because the historical buildings are not well kept (excluding the ones owned by the Boro and Twp)
|Something with an Eagle and the Red and Black colors.|
Use of fields and new park area, fundraising, encouraging community involvement with district personnel so "everyone knows everyone"
|If they don't have money to donate to help a particular cause for the district, then donate time and volunteer.|
More community outings. Things like National Night Out, but education and community based versus security and community based. Teach kids to get out and volunteer and motivate them to do so.
|Station 6 field only because of National Night Out and the carnival||None, everything was discussed that I can think of at the moment.|
I think so, but I wish the fire departments would work together more because Station 9 is definitely more advanced.
