So since you volunteer so much you'd obviously see that Teri didn't win the award, the EMSP did.Read More And since you volunteer so much you'd obviously know that the work that the EMSP does (that Teri leads) generates thousands of volunteer hours each year for the Emmaus business and residential community. It's clear that you have a personal problem with Teri and decided to try to smear her anonymously. Your pathetic attempt has been pointed out as such. Is there anything else you'd like to add? And no one believes you volunteer at all, stop making stuff up.

You don't know me! The EMSP is a joke and and obviously you are a joke. Yes Terri is a horribleRead More leader for a non-profit organization for the small businesses of emmaus. Name 5 substantial things emsp has done to help the small bussinesses in town! Nothing. The emsp and Terri only care about their own personal survival

1. Started the Farmers Market, brings thousands into Emmaus every Sunday. 2. Got funding,Read More contractor and deal for the Ritter Furniture building project. 3. Got funding for the Borough Master Plan - crucial because you have to have one in order to qualify for grants. 4. Published the Emmaus Community guide, and distributed over 25,000 copies. 5. Ran many festivals over the years, brings thousands of people into Emmaus. I know you by the way.

This is a shame. I've been visiting Jasper Park since kindergarten at Very Cruz School. The pipe isRead More probably in some kids' basement, taken as a prank or dare. Perhaps a 'no questions asked' if the item is returned will help the Chief to become whole again.

There is no value for it is beyond a price. This is ridiculous. Kids have nothing better to do? IRead More cannot imagine a grown adult committing this type of theft. For what end? If I would have done something like this and my Dad would have found out, and he would have, it would be extremely difficult to sit for quite a long time.

Circulation Day is also FREE! It is really based on the spiritual principle of FLOW--as you give,Read More so shall you receive. Items range from housewares, to toys, to linens, art, books and items that always surprise us. They are all items someone wanted at one point but are ready to release for someone else's good. There is no bartering with God and you cannot out give God. We welcome the community to come and find a treasure or something useful as we open ourselves to the flow of God's good.
