William Bell Sr. Memorial Highway Dedication

Earlier this week, Warrington Township, members of the community and I joined the family of the late William Bell Sr. to honor his memory with a portion of Easton Rd. (611) dedicated in his name.

Fire Police Captain William Bell Sr. lost his life serving his community while directing traffic at an accident near Upper Barness Road.  In January 1964, it was reported that two vehicles were racing in the southband lanes and crested the hill just above the accident scene when they reportedly attempted to avoid the crash and struck Fire Police Captain Bell.

The dedicated stretch of roadway, a portion of Easton Road – from the intersection of Upper Barness Road and K street to the intersection of Park Rd. in Warrington Township will now be known as William Bell Sr Memorial Highway. 

Former State Rep. Todd Polinchock passed the legislation, House Bill 2822, to make this possible.  This memorial will serve in ensuring William Bell Sr.’s legacy and service will not be forgotten among our community.

Congratulations Eagle Scouts

Congratulations to Sanjay Nair, Joshua Sieto, and Niklas Skjeveland on earning the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest advancement rank available in the Boys Scouts of America.

Sanjay Nair and Joshua Sieto, both from Troop 6, held their Court of Honor this past weekend.  I was unable to attend, but my chief of staff Ryan Skoczylas was there to present both with a citation from the Senate of Pennsylvania for this tremendous honor.

For Sanjay’s Eagle Scout project, he built an outdoor science classroom for Unami Middle School and Justin planted trees along a trail in a local park for his project.

On Sunday, I attended the Court of Honor for Niklas Skjeveland of Troop 71. For his Eagle Scout project, Niklas constructed a bridge for the Heritage Conservancy at the Jackson Pond Preserve.

All three of these young men have shown tremendous work and effort on making our community a better place and I wish them continued success for their futures.
