Tonight, we celebrate the light…

Tonight, members of the Jewish community will gather with family and friends to begin the celebration of Hanukkah.

Hanukkah is a holiday that celebrates miracles – the miraculous endurance of the Jewish people in the face of persecution and hardship. The story of the Festival of Lights teaches us that when we stand together united; we can overcome any obstacle.  May the Festival of Lights remind us all that even in darkness, we celebrate the light.

Best wishes and happy Hanukkah,
Shawn A. Raup-Konsavage
Mayor – Bernville Borough

Halloween is almost upon us and if your children are like most, then they are looking forward to getting outside in their costumes to trick or treat.  We are asking youths who are venturing out to use safety precautions and also asking residents to put on their porch lights if they plan to participate.  Trick-or-treat is Thursday, October 31, from 6 to 9 p.m.  Portions of Main Street will be closed, so please plan accordingly.    While Trick-or-treating can be a lot of fun there are also some dangers that come along with these few hours of candy-collecting. We put together a short list of things to be aware of as you head out this Halloween.

  • Travel in groups. Children should never go trick or treating by themselves, be sure to always travel in a group of trick or treaters. Having one adult per group is always a good idea too!
  • Make sure you can be seen. Put reflective tape on your costume and trick or treat bag so that you can easily be seen by vehicles.
  • Use the sidewalks whenever possible. When walking down the street, be sure to use the sidewalk to get to the next place. Also, be aware when crossing the road. Use a crosswalk when possible and be sure to look both ways.
  • Have a smart costume. Darker costumes are harder to see, so be sure to think about this when picking out your costume. Make sure that you are visible to vehicles that are driving on the road.
  • Check your candy. It is always good to play it safe and check all of the candy you collected before diving in. Check for any wrappers that are opened or tampered with and do not eat them. Also, be aware of home-baked sweets.
