|Shanksville Fire Department Turkey Raffle |
The Shanksville Volunteer Fire Department (SVFD) will hold a Turkey Raffle at the fire station on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 7:00 PM. More than 50 turkeys, each with a 10# bag of potatoes, will be raffled off over the course of the evening.
Most residents have been sent a letter in the mail, with tickets included. These advance-purchase tickets must be filled out and either returned to SVFD or dropped off at Snida's Corner Store in Shanksville. These tickets will be included for a chance at the first 20 turkeys only. A chance at the remaining turkeys [30-40] will require your attendance and an additional ticket purchase at the event.
We look forward to seeing you at this fund raiser and hope you will come out for some fun, food, and to meet your local firefighters at their station.

|Council Changes |
At the June 11th meeting Charlie McCauley's resignation was announced and accepted by Council. Scott Hollern was appointed to fill the vacancy on Council until the reorganization following the next Municipal Election [January 2016]. Scott is also a member of the Planning Commission.
Lynn Shimer was elected Council President. Lynn has been a member of Council for a little over two years and serves as Chair of our Watershed/Environment Committee and as a member of the Finance Committee.
|Valve Locator Posts |
As a result of our efforts trying to narrow-down water leaks this year, and the difficulties we had locating them, we have installed a number of new isolation valves. Also in the process we found and have replaced a number of defective curb-side shut-offs for residences.
It is necessary that these valves, and all curb-side shutoffs, be clearly visible or marked so they can be easily located in emergencies, and can be readily avoided by snow-plows, delivery trucks and guests who may need to park along the roadways/berms.
The Borough has purchased metal posts/stakes intended for this purpose. This was done a number of years ago and many have been removed or knocked over. [Some were 'reportedly' removed by residents who considered them eyesores, but I can't see anyone doing that on purpose...]
Please make a note of where your curb-box is located and check regularly that the locator remains upright, visible and effective. If it gets knocked over or removed, please report it to the Borough Office.
Thank you for your cooperation,
