Save a spot on your summer calendar for the 3rd weekend in July. Great Bend Borough is having a birthday, its 150th.
The history of civilization at the Great Bend of the Susquehanna River in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania is a little confusing, since what is now Hallstead was called Great Bend Village until 1874. The neighboring boroughs, divided only by a river, were carved out of Great Bend Township, which was incorporated much earlier, in 1791, but called Willingborough until 1814. What is now Great Bend Borough was called Lodersville until it was incorporated in 1860 (or 1861, depending on your source). That’s what the little town will be celebrating this summer, under the leadership of the Great Bend Hose Company, the local fire company that has a long and distinguished history of its own.
The New Milford Borough Council held its reorganization meeting on Monday, January 4, welcoming two new members, Ken Carey and Penny Scarborough, who took the places of Scott Smith and Chris Allen, who did not seek re-election.
Incumbent, Teri Gulick, also took oath of office with the two newbies administered by Mayor Joseph Taylor, thus completing the members of the 2010 New Milford Borough Council.
