The Kulpsville Lions Club has disbanded. It served the residents of Towamencin Township and Beyond for more than six decades, collecting 25-thouand pairs of eyeglasses for the needy and serving up 100-thousand sausage links during their twice a year breakfasts to benefit the youth of the community. Former Kulpsville Lions Club member, Donna Law says there just isn’t any new blood in the organization.
“Part of it was because we have an aging group and it was pretty difficult for them to come out to all the meetings still. It also got to be a little bit costly and we a couple of young members who are now empty nesters because the children are off to college, Mom and Dad are traveling and getting a new respect for one another, if you will.”
The Kulpsville Lions are donating club artifacts to Towamencin Township for display at the municipal building and the police station.
W-B Homes will get its chance next month to convince Towamencin Township officials to rezone about twelve acres at Mainland and Wambold roads for a Townhome Community. The developer wants to build 48 units there, but can’t do that with the current light industrial zoning designation. Township Manager, Rob Ford says, the public hearing is still a few weeks off.
“Soon as we could do it would be the second week in May, which I believe is May 22nd because the law requires the municipality to notify property owners in the area that being rezoned.”
The developer says almost half of the site will be preserved as passive open space and walking trails connect the Townhome community with nearby commercial centers
