Outstanding Turnout at 2015 Crossing Reenactments
George Washington and his troops once again successfully crossed the Delaware in December, continuing a decades-long tradition that is enjoyed by generations. Thanks to unseasonably warm weather, about 4,000 people lined the banks of the river for the December 13 crossing and the Christmas Day Crossing attracted more than 15,000 people, thanks in part to another unseasonably warm day. The 60-degree weather was a far cry from the cold weather and dangerous waters that Washington’s troops faced on Christmas in 1776.


Habitat For Humanity's ReStore Coming to Langhorne Shopping Center
ReStore will be opening in the Langhorne Shopping Center, 1137 Lincoln Highway, in Levittown in the Spring of 2016. Local businesses and residents in the community make donations to ReStore every day and these donations help fund the construction and rehab of homes for local low income families. Here you will find great deals on doors, windows, tools, cabinets, furniture and more, or please consider donating.


Three Newtown Organizations Receive Grant Money
Foundations Community Partnership recently distributed $152,000 in grants to Bucks County organizations, three of which were in Newtown.
-Bucks County Health Improvement Partnership (BCHIP) in Newtown will use the grant to enhance the integrated behavioral and medical health project at BCHIP’s free behavioral support clinic in Lower Bucks.

  • The Council Rock School District (Newtown) will use the grant to support their ACHIEVE program, which provides social skills/vocational training to transition age youth.
  • Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Newtown will provide equipment to expand their services for special needs families.
