For the past seven years, Vicki Tieche has compiled the monthly information to put on this township website as a volunteer. As of September 1, Vicki is retiring from this activity. Management of this website will then be totally done by the township who may decide to change things then, or at some time in the future.

Saturday July 9th turned out to be perfect for the 189 bicycle riders who turned out for Harlem Township Heritage’s (HTH) 6th annual Duncan’s Run Patch Ride. While most of the riders chose the mid length 60 mile route, 50 brave souls registered for the 75 mile route that took them via the back roads to Branstool Orchard in Utica where HTH had a rest stop (also a rest stop at the Condit Presbyterian Church). At the end of the ride, riders were treated to a multi-course lunch at the Beltz Retreat and music played by Arnett Howard. Riders are very complimentary of our ride and say we do everything right. They appreciate the low entry fee; low for them but enough for Harlem Township Heritage to raise several thousand dollars, which is invested in Harlem Township in free to the community attractions at Harlem Township Days – a win-win situation.

Found a dead bird? The Delaware General Health District wants to know about it because the West Nile virus has been detected in variety of bird species. Some infected birds, especially crows and jays, are known to get sick and die from the infection. Reporting and testing of dead birds is one way to check for the presence of West Nile virus in the environment. Some surveillance programs rely on citizens to report dead bird sightings to local authorities.

If you find a dead bird, please go to the Delaware General Health District’s website and report it on the form they have available or use this link: report form.
