There were some inquires made to borough council members this past week on how to run for office.  That was a great question which led to additions to the website.  The Borough Council and Mayor sections under Government were upgraded to show when the current members’ terms expire and how individuals can run for office.  The Residents Voting section received the same upgrade showing how to run for office.   This year three council seats will be on the ballot.  Individuals interested in running for office should check out the various sections soon since the May primary election is fast approaching.

The town of New Florence will be celebrating their 150th anniversary with a town-wide celebration on August 17, 2019. The New Florence Sesquicentennial Committee is planning a parade, car cruise, live music, Civil War Encampment, historical displays, pie eating and milk chugging contests, Corn Hole Tournament, fireworks and much more! Volunteers and/or financial donors are needed.

Our current funds are low and our planning time is very short. Therefore, we are reaching out to local businesses, organizations, and individuals for support. We would greatly appreciate any monetary donation(s) you could make and, for planning purposes, a reply by February 01, 2019 would be very helpful.  Please note that donations are tax deductible, and major contributors will be announced throughout the event.
