Fellow Barrett Township Taxpayers -
I've compiled some additional information regarding properties owned by the Township.
All of the below information (deed and parcel info links, property names, etc) has been merged into the existing "tracker" article. (full screen alternative link)
PUBLIC NOTICE - ESTATE NOTICE
Estate of Thomas T. Eccleston, deceased
Late of Barrett Township, Monroe County
Letters Testamentary in the above named estate having been granted to the undersigned, all persons indebted to the estate are requested to make immediate payment, and those having claims are directed to present the same without delay to the undersigned or his attorney within four months from the date hereof and to file with the Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas of the Forty-Third Judicial District, Orphans Court Division, a particular statement of claim, duly verified by an Affidavit setting forth an address with the County where notice may be given to Claimant.
At the beginning of March, the Foundation for Jewish Camp released its 2022 Census/State of Jewish Camp Report. Using data from 246 day and overnight camps across North America, the nonprofit found that enrollment last summer “grew to 96% of pre-pandemic levels.” That was up 13% from 2021. And early reports show “strong demand for summer 2023.”
Local camps are not just seeing similar numbers. They are surpassing them.
Summer homes that serve Philadelphia-area families, like Canadensis in the Poconos, Nock-A-Mixon in Bucks County and the JCC Camps at Medford in South Jersey, have wait lists with hundreds of names. Directors say that parents want their kids to get out in nature with their peers and away from screens. That last part is especially important because kids spent so much time online during the pandemic.
