COMMUNITY CENTER: Closed through April 30th.

CANCELLATIONS: Hanover Days scheduled for May 6th – 9th and the Armed Forces Day Program, May 16th.

FIRE COMPANY: During this time of the Stay At Home order for Northampton County, the Hanover Township Volunteer Fire Company is doing Birthday Parades of Emergency Vehicles for those children who cannot have their birthday party due to the Order. Please email the Fire Chief at: firechief@htvfc.org if you would like this for your child or special needs adult. Even if their birthday has already passed, but was during the Stay At Home Order or the voluntary period of staying home. Thanks and stay safe, stay home and wash your hands. All of our fire and EMS personnel appreciate that.

CENSUS: Individuals/homes should have or will be receiving Census information in the mail to enter responses on-line.  While you’re at home this would be a great time to submit your data. The Census establishes representatives in congress and availability of Federal Funds.

NEIGHBORS & FAMILY: Keep checking on your neighbors & family members. See if they are surviving and find out if they may need necessities from the grocery store or the other retailers when you go. Let’s limit trips to stores

ABSENTEE BALLOTS:  Order your absentee ballot by going on-line to: https://www.votespa.com/Voting-in-PA/Pages/Mail-and-Absentee-Ballot.aspx. If the election is not moved to a later date you’ll eliminate being in contact with a potential carrier.  This would also eliminate waiting in line election day.

Together we will get through this one day at a time by doing our individual parts.

If you have any questions, please call the Township Office at 610.866.1140.

Be Well, Be Safe!!!!
