LET'S HEAR THOSE BELLS!! - Sunday May 3rd at 7:00pm
BELLS ACROSS PENNSYLVANIA DAY
Fellow citizens, the Pennsylvania State Mayor’s Association has initiated an event entitled “Bells Across Pennsylvania Day”. The statewide event will take place on Sunday May 3, 2020. Its threefold purpose is:
To recognize and honor first responders, healthcare workers, and employees of grocery stores, pharmacies and other life sustaining businesses who have maintained essential services to the general public while at risk of infection from COVID-19, and deserve to be celebrated as "hometown heroes"; To show solidarity with elected officials and residents of municipalities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, all of whom are fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines together in their communities; and To demonstrate a collective resolve that Pennsylvanians will prevail over COVID-19 and work tirelessly to ensure that their businesses and civic life will thrive once again.
Lower Saucon Township Council fully supports this gesture of gratitude and solidarity with all Pennsylvanians. Hometown Heroes encompass emergency medical personnel, firefighters, police officers and employees of grocery stores, pharmacies and other life-sustaining businesses who have braved the viral elements, at the expense of themselves and their families, to maintain essential services to the general public sheltering in place and are greatly deserving of recognition as Hometown Heroes.
We encourage, our residents to do something special for someone in your neighborhood who is a “hometown hero”, while maintaining safe sheltering in place guidelines. For example a telephone call, a note of support, delivery of baked goods, etc. Then at 7:00 p.m. on May 3, 2020, all Pennsylvanians and houses of worship will be encouraged to ring bells for three minutes – one minute for each of the above purposes.
Thank you to everyone for doing your part.
