Upper Milford Township

Last night between the rain drops, Upper Milford Township, along with the UMYA, Congresswomen Susan Wilde, Rep. Justin Simmons, Senator Pat Browne honored Roselyn and Robert Parry for 53 years of community service to Upper Milford Township. Along with declarations of thanks from the above named offices, Upper Milford Township Supervisors have dedicated the pavilion at Lenape Park to the Parry's and their commitment of service. Through serving on the youth sports program board, coaching, running the concession stand, to the Recreation Committee, Historical Society, park care taking, and flower bend tending the Parry's have devoted a lot of time and energy into our community the last 53 years. Communities like ours are always made better by inspirational people like Robert and Roselyn. May they continue to be an inspiration to others through their service. Their community service goes well beyond the boarders of Upper Milford township, into Pennsburg with the Schwenkfelder Library and into Emmaus with the Garden Club. May we all learn the lesson of a better life through service to others. Thank you again for all you have done for our community.

Die Vorfahren von Patrick Donmoyer kamen aus der Pfalz, Baden-Württemberg, dem Elsass und der Schweiz. 1736 haben sie ihre Heimat verlassen, um in Amerika ein neues Leben zu beginnen. Eines der wichtigsten kulturellen Güter ist dabei bis heute erhalten geblieben: ihre Sprache. Patrick gehört zu den jüngsten Sprechern in seinem Umfeld. „Es ist schwer zu lernen, weil man nicht gerade viele Leute zum Reden hat. Aber ich habe vergleichsweise viele Leute in meiner Nachbarschaft, die diese Sprache sprechen. Und so kann ich Pennsylfornisch-Deitsch reden, wann immer ich möchte.“ The Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center Kutztown University of Pennsylvania #SWRHeimat
