The bricks are in!

The first of the engraved bricks honoring military personnel were installed today at the Veterans Memorial Bridge Plaza. The bricks were installed by Tom Jones Landscape and Lawncare. A dedication ceremony is planned for this coming Saturday, May 26, at 2 p.m. at the plaza.

Bricks can still be ordered for the plaza walkway. There is a deadline of July 2 for an August install, and a deadline of October 1 for a November install.

    1. Well, that was a fast "ask and you shall receive"!

  7. I know others are trying to get recognition, but this idea was conceptualized by Mr.Glatfelter and Kevin Kraft was brought in to see it to fruition. That's it, all others please step aside and out of the limelight.

    1. Amen. It is really sad to see borough officials taking credit for this when It was the work of Mr. Glatfelter with Mr. Kraft who should get the credit. Makes me sick!

    2. No. In fact commenters like you make me sick. I have yet to hear any borough official or council member take personal credit other than discussion at meetings. In fact it has been pretty low key. Don't spoil a great thing and a great day with your continued negativity.
