We are in the second month of this unsettling time and I hope everyone is safe and well. For the most part Lansdowne has not been affected as much as some other towns, but that does not mean that some residents have not been affected by this terrible virus. For these residents our thoughts and prayers go out to them and their families. As Mayor, I want to thank our residents for following the recommendations of social distancing, wearing masks and staying home. It has made a difference; but now is not the time to let up. I urge you to continue to abide by these rules until we are sure this is past us. It’s not just good for our community in Lansdowne but also our neighboring communities. I know this is tough and unsettling, but we are in this challenge together and together we will see it through. Please know that the Borough is here for you. We are making sure our Police, Fire, sanitation and other vital borough services continue. I want to thank all the Borough employees and first responders for stepping up and making sure our residents are protected. Unfortunately, some borough events have been cancelled due to this pandemic and there will probably be more cancellations before this is over. I am sad to say that the Memorial Day Parade which is special and a tradition here in Lansdowne has been cancelled. For years the American Legion Post 65 and the LBPA have put on a great parade to honor our veterans who gave up their lives for our country. Because of what is going on and the uncertainty of how safe it would be going forward they decided to cancel the event. I understand their concerns and support them on their discussion. Just because there will not be a parade doesn’t mean we should not still show our support and gratitude for all these brave men and women. I urge all residents to show your support by flying our flag at your home on Memorial Day weekend and even before. We will do our part at the borough to show our thanks too.
When things get back to normal our local businesses are going to need our support more than ever. I ask everyone to think of them now and when they reopen. We need them to succeed so Lansdowne keeps moving forward. I know right now is a challenging time for everyone in so many ways and it will be for a while until we get back to some kind of normal. We will get there and when we do, I think we will appreciate more what we have moving forward. We are in this together as a community. Speaking of helping your community don’t forget to fill out your 2020 Census it’s important. Let’s all be Lansdowne strong and stay safe.
See you around town soon.
Mayor Tony Campuzano
