Keep in mind..

‪We know PA state forests have some of the best leaf peeping 🍂👀 in the state and also are a favorite for hunters. Those who are in the woods during hunting seasons should use precaution.

We hope all that take to Penn’s Woods this fall have a safe and enjoyable season! Check hunting seasons at the Pennsylvania Game Commission. #PAFallFoliage #FallinPA‬

We are starting an e-newsletter for Parks and Recreation to keep residents more informed. If you would like to receive emails from us (maybe twice a month), please private message us here or email [email protected] to be added. We will send PDF flyers of all the upcoming events and programs.

If we started an indoor play-date series for little ones and parents/caretakers that had different activities setup, who would be interested? We are looking at Monday mornings from 10-11 am (so you have enough time to drop off any school-age/preschool children first). It would be a chance to break up stir craziness and meet new friends once its cold outside.

This was a PERFECT morning! 50 children and 16 adults, the Milton Hershey School houseparents and kiddos came to volunteer to plant around the gazebo and do some serious weeding outside. Meanwhile inside, at least 40 more kiddos built activity packs for terminally ill children stuck in local hospitals. A huge thank you goes not only to them, but our Township’s bookkeeper Soni and her family for helping. Fire Chief Tom was also kind enough to help finish watering and clean up. THANK YOU EVERYONE from the Parks and Recreation Department. #communityday❤️🌷

CALLING FOR VOLUNTEERS: Seeing the aftermath of the flooding as the water recedes, we would love some help. South Hanover has had 3 of the 7 parks completely under water. We are asking for anyone that is interested in volunteering to help clean up to please contact Jhane Kunkel. There is still more rain to come so lets hope it doesn’t create anymore damage for our residents and Township.

PennDot has opened the Grandview Rd/N Hanover St Bridge going into Hummelstown Borough. Please use caution as this road will get congested and allow plenty of time for your travel.

Also a reminder, please DO NOT move the barricades blocking off the flooded roadways. Even if you see that the water has receded. Roads and Bridges will need to be inspected and possibly repaired. Barricades and cones will be moved by the proper personnel.
