The first installment of panels in a "History Walk" can be found alongside a portion of the perimeter trail at Warminster Community Park. Warminster Department of Parks and Recreation credits Eagle Scout Candidate Sean Hyland with the installation of the park's newest feature. Volunteers from the township, the Craven Hall Historical Society and the Johnsville Science and Centrifuge Museum worked to research the information on the panels, which are posted on bright orange podiums around the perimeter of the park. Representatives from the Parks and Recreation department said over the next two years additional panels will be added.

“We couldn't be happier to be the new home to 300 new trees," Supervisor Mark McKee said.
Much of Warminster Community Park’s nearly three miles of walking trails are treeless, but that’s about to change starting this fall. At a ceremony on Tuesday, officials from Warminster Township and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society announced that 300 trees would be planted along the walking trails at the park, which is made up of 243 mostly treeless acres that were formerly part of the Johnsville Naval Air Warfare Center, as part of the Plant One Million program. “We couldn't be happier to be the new home to 300 new trees," township Supervisor Mark McKee said at the event. He added that the trees would make the park “more inviting.” Pennsylvania Horticultural Society staff and volunteers will begin planting the trees beginning in …

The Craven Hall Historical Society held its 16th annual fundraising marathon on Saturday. For the second year in a row, 91-year-old Albert Booth was there to participate.
You probably don’t expect to see a 91-year-old man running a marathon any time soon, but the family and fans of Albert Booth see it at least once every week. Turning 92 on Oct. 30, Booth, from Lebanon, has been participating in local races for over 30 years.

The race was organized by the Craven Hall Historical Society to raise awareness and funding for education of local area history. “Our race actually covers hollowed ground,” said Erik Fleischer, president of the historical society. The 3.1 mile course at Warminster Community Park rests upon the 1778 …

Husky rescue group holds fundraising dog hike and festival.
There was plenty of tail-waggin' going on at Warminster Park over the weekend. The Tails of The Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue, Inc. held its 9th Annual fundraising hike and festival. The group was founded in 2000 and started with only eight members. They have since grown to more than 60 active members and have placed more than 1,000 husky and husky mixes into adoptive homes.

She has fostered a total of 27 dogs to date for the group but couldn't part with Bailey. “The first dog is the hardest to give up,” said Baker. Baker explained the rewards of being a foster home, adding that if she never gave up her foster dogs, she wouldn't be able to save another. However, …
