Our drinking water contains chlorine, arsenic, copper, and lead. (On the bright side, at least it doesn’t contain fluoride!)
Are you drinking FILTERED water?
Below are some suggestions for filtering the water in your home.
We encourage everyone to drink clean water and eat quality food.
Even if you have well water, adding the above filters to your home’s water system couldn’t hurt.

(Letter to the Editor) Hello Neighbor!
We are very sorry for the interruption in township news updates, but bad colds and family matters this winter slowed us down. We'll summarize activities since January, although you are probably already familiar with them:
We will have tables available for local persons who have environment or humanity based businesses, projects, or hobbies they would like to share, or display.
We're back! Enjoy April 19th with us- see presentations on tomahawk throwing by the Boy Scouts, maple syrup by Dutch Hill Preserves, and saving the bee and butterfly pollinators. Join a nature walk, admire local art, support our local farms or purchase plant seedlings for your garden. Children can make bird feeders, and plant seeds.
Music by Juggernaut String Band. BBQ food truck by local The Smokin' Chef.
Thank you to our gold sponsors Skytop Lodge and Weiler.
