C.A.M.E.…our local food bank in Barrett Township is in need of donations for the holidays.  If you can help out by making a donation it would greatly be appreciated.  THANK YOU!

The Mountainhome United Methodist Church is selling “Holiday Greens”.  Greens are being made by Ross & Ross Nursery in Paradise Valley, PA.  Contact a member of the Church or the Church office (570-595-2077) for an order form and more information.

The Barrett Supervisors are going ahead with a referendum on the November ballot to remove the 1/2 mill tax dedicated to Open Space.  The meeting will be held on Friday, August 3, at 9:30 a.m. to receive public input and then they will vote to approve the new referendum.  If you SUPPORT Open Space, and do not want the current ordinance to end, please plan to attend the meeting and voice your concerns.  If you cannot attend the meeting (which is being held on a weekday), please voice your opinion by calling the township at 570-595-2602(leave a message), speaking with individual Supervisors, or e-mailing the Chairman of the Supervisors, Ralph Megliola, at megliola@ptd.net.

Please share this information with friends and neighbors. The Supervisors believe that the residents of Barrett Township do not want to continue supporting Open Space. If you disagree, you need to let them know.

Thank you for your time,
Patti O'Keefe
