Posted by on Sep 1, 2018 in News | Comments Off on WWI Monument Re-Dedication

We need your help for the re-dedication of the WWI memorial at the corner of Vine and Jefferson.  We ar trying to acquire information on the veterans that are listed on the monument.

We are working in conjunction with the Reading Historical Society for a re-dedication celebration to be held in June 2019.

Of particular interest are pictures and military records of these veterans to include in a book that will be available at the celebration.

Please contact us if you have something we can use.  We can make whatever arrangements with you to obtain copies.

Thank you in advance.

On March 21, 2018, Kidde recalled their dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms – model PI9010 (DC/battery powered) with the date code of 2016 Sep. 10 through 2017 Oct. 13 and model PI2010 (AC/hardwired) with the date code 2016 Sep. 10 through 2017 Oct. 13.
A yellow cap left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors and compromise the smoke alarm’s ability to detect smoke, posing a risk of consumers not being alerted to a fire in their home. Approximately 452,000 units were sold in the U.S.
