Bells Across Pennsylvania

NEWS RELEASE

Bells Across Pennsylvania

Sunday, May 3rd  at 7:00 p.m. 

The Office of Mayor of Castle Shannon Borough has issued a proclamation in support of “Bells Across Pennsylvania,” an initiative of the Pennsylvania State Mayors’ Association which will take place on May 3, 2020. The threefold purpose of the initiative is:

  • To recognize and honor first responders, healthcare workers, and employees of grocery stores, pharmacies and other life-sustaining businesses who have maintained essential services while at risk of infection from COVID-19;
  • To show solidarity with elected officials and residents of municipalities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, all of whom are fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines together; and
  • To demonstrate a collective resolve that Pennsylvanians will prevail over COVID-19 and work tirelessly to ensure that their businesses and civic life will thrive once again.

Mayors and other elected officials are being encouraged to hold whatever events “sheltering-in-place" will allow.  Then at 7:00 p.m., all Pennsylvanians and churches will be encouraged to ring bells for three minutes – one for each of the above purposes. 

Let's hear those bells!
