Discover Lansdale is looking forward to the upcoming Founders Day celebration, on August 29th, 2015.  The title of this year's celebration is Building a Borough, speaking of the Borough of Lansdale that we all enjoy and want to make a better place. 

During the course of this year's celebration we will have various activities going in and around the Borough, the Lansdale Police Station will be open for visitors to have tours, the new Borough Hall will be dedicated at 3 p.m., water battle and model trains at the Fairmount Fire Co., Lansdale Library open, Art Festival at Memorial Park, Health Expo, among many other activities. 

Rail fans will be able to climb over, under and through engines on display by SEPTA and the Pennsylvania Northeast Railroad in the area of the Lansdale Train Station and Railroad Plaza will be used as an activity area with musicians, food vendors, and kids activities from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Young rail fans will also enjoy a “Munchkin Railway” by the Reading Railroad Historical Museum located in the West Main Street parking lot at Main and Susquehanna Avenue.

Please bring your children out to the Family Fun time happening from 12-6 p.m. in the Century Plaza parking area on Green St.  The Philly Mobile Zipline is back, moon bounces, raceway and trampolines.
We cannot forget about the amazing last item on the schedule as always is...Fireworks at Penndale Middle School.  Put this down on your calendar for 9 p.m. on August 29th 2015.

We hope to see everyone out and about on August 29th, 2015, as we celebrate Building a Borough with Discover Lansdale and friends.  The Founders Day celebration would not happen without the amazing committee and volunteers that we have helping out on that day and building up to that day.

Longtime Lansdale Historical Society President Shearer to receive Lansdale Lifetime Achievement award

The biggest day of the year in Lansdale is rapidly approaching, and borough officials are planning to recognize the man who’s done more than any other to remember Lansdale’s previous 145 years.

Dick Shearer, Lansdale Historical Society president and former Reporter editor, has been named the borough’s Lansdale Lifetime Achievement Award winner for 2015.

“Dick’s an easy choice, and we’re so glad he’s always in the running every year. You’re hard-pressed to say anybody’s more deserving,” said Mary Fuller, president of borough nonprofit Discover Lansdale.

Discover Lansdale administers the award, given as part of its Founders Day festivities to local figures who have left a lasting impact on the community. Prior winners have been longtime Fairmount Fire Company Chief Jay Daveler in 2012, borough Parks and Recreation Director Carl Saldutti in 2013, and former North Penn High School Principal and Marching Knights Director Stephen Frederick in 2014 — a group Fuller said Shearer is more than qualified to join.

“Everyone could make a very strong argument to honor Mr. Shearer,” Fuller said, citing “first, his work life, and secondly his service to the community by keeping track of our history.”

Shearer originally hails from Sellersville and was raised in Perkasie, graduating from Pennridge High School in 1963 and Rider University in 1967. During high school and college Shearer worked as a part-time sportswriter for the Daily Intelligencer in Doylestown, and despite a stint in the U.S. Army in Vietnam during 1968-69 he worked as The Reporter’s sports editor from 1967-’71 and was named to numerous news management positions over the next three decades. In the mid-1990s Shearer joined the Lansdale Historical Society, which he has led as its president since 2002, and in that time he’s helped keep alive the memories of old Lansdale in countless ways: running monthly community programs that show photos and tell stories of various sites around town, collating print programs such as the “Back in Time” booklet featuring tales of the area’s past, and a sequel booklet now available, and developing a list of 10 local historic buildings whose architecture should be preserved.

He’ll receive the award at 3 p.m. on Founders Day, Aug. 29, just before the dedication of the new municipal complex.
