On Living in South Heidelberg Township
“I have lived in South Heidelberg for 32 years and I have to say that when I was transferred to Reading I had the opportunity to look at many municipalities and none compared to the beauty of South Heidelberg. I love the hills and valleys, the rural feel and the scenic farms.”
On Taking Interest in Local Government
“I have been interested in government and how it functions since my college days and I was very active in one of the political clubs. In South Heidelberg, I try to attend all of the monthly public meetings including the Supervisor meetings, Planning Commission, and Municipal Authority and I serve on our Board of Auditors.”
On Serving on the 100th Anniversary of South Heidelberg Township
“It was a hard-working and fun committee to be a part of. Our Anniversary book was a hit and with the money left over from the sales we established a yearly Conrad Weiser scholarship for a deserving South Heidelberg student. The books are still for sale at the township building.”
On Serving as a Poll Worker
“One of the ways that I serve the community is as an election poll worker. I have been a poll worker for 16 years and I enjoy doing it. It’s a good way to serve and get to meet my community neighbors.”
Don truly embodies service to his community in serving in various important roles including as a Poll Worker during our elections. The Township appreciates Don for being a great citizens and volunteer in our community!
