Each year nominations are sought that demonstrate outstanding quality; innovation; range and value of appeal; community support; efficient use of funding for programs, special events, publications and promotions. Muhlenberg demonstrated these traits with two significant events in 2016. The first was the hosting of The Moving Wall; which is a scaled replica of the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial that stands in Washington DC. This event brought recognition and healing to those that gave the ultimate scarifies during this conflict and those that came home to ambivalent feelings after their time in Vietnam. The second award was for the RiverFest community event. RiverFest was a food and music festival held along the Schuylkill River at Jim Dietrich Park. In two days a crowd of over 14,000 people gather to hear music on two stages, enjoy some delicious food and visit with friends and family out at our local park. The setting of the trail and the back drop of the river made for a tranquil environment to enjoy some community spirit. The entire staff of the Township worked as a team for these honors. We want to share our successful moments with the community in which we proudly serve.
