Fireworks will light up the summer sky again this July in Perkasie, thanks to support from Bucks County’s leading independent, mutual bank
PERKASIE, Pa. (June 12, 2019) – A Perkasie-area tradition will continue in 2019, thanks to support from Penn Community Bank, which again will sponsor the fireworks display at Pennridge Community Day.
Penn Community Bank has donated $6,000 to support the 47th Annual Pennridge Community Day, to be held on July 7 in Perkasie’s Lenape Park. The bank has donated money to support the event’s fireworks display for many years.
“For decades, Pennridge Community Day has drawn together families from across Bucks County for a free day of summer family fun,” said Penn Community Bank Chief Relationship Officer Todd R. Hurley, a longtime Perkasie resident. “We are proud to join other area businesses and community organizations to make this day possible.”
Hurley presented a check for the $6,000 donation to Paul Lorenz, president of GALCO Business Communications. As vice president and president of Perkasie Rotary, respectively, Hurley and Lorenz joined Betty Graver, executive director of Pennridge Chamber of Commerce, to save Pennridge Community Day when Realtor Tom Skiffington stepped down in 2018 after organizing the event for many years.
“Pennridge Community Day is a tradition that is too precious to lose,” said Lorenz. “We are grateful to Penn Community Bank for continuing to sponsor the fireworks display, to Tom Skiffington for organizing the event for so many years, and to the Pennridge Chamber and other businesses and organizations that have stepped forward to keep this wonderful event alive.”
Pennridge Community Day will be held in Perkasie’s Lenape Park on Sunday, July 7, and will begin at 12 p.m. and run through 6 p.m. Fireworks will begin at dusk; rain date for the event is July 14. For more information, visit www.pennridgecommunityday.org.
