Volunteer Appreciation Celebration
December 17, 2016

(Click on photo to enlarge)

Despite it being a cold, snowy, icy  gray day,  thirty plus New Britain Borough volunteers made their way to Burkart Hall for the borough’s 1st Annual Volunteer Appreciation Celebration. It was a fun, festive , with delicious treats catered by Parkhurst Catering  of Delaware Valley University, holiday music and a Gift Basket, Pointsettia  and Orchid raffle at the end of the day!

Borough Administration was so pleased to be able to host this FUN event as a way to show the veolunteers how much all of their time, hard work and dedication is appreciated here in New Britain Borough.

In the spirit of “volunteerism” our annual “Wreaths Across America” event hosted by the Historic Preservation Committtee was canceled due to the inclimate weather. But despite the weather conditions, Mr. Bruce Burkart, long-time borough resident and volunteer, was determined to get the wreaths on the graves for all military men buried in the New Britain Baptist Church cemetery! Dan O’Leary, of  joined Bruce , and although the formal ceremony with a full color guard  was cancelled for safety reasons, these wonderful volunteers created their own ceremony by making sure the wreaths were place on each and every military grave. That is just one example of the human spirit with determination, respect and honor of volunteering!

Volunteering  ~ not only rewarding, but a lot of FUN too!
