Restoring Homes in Bucks County
For more than 30 years, the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Bucks has been rehabiliting homes throughout the county. Qualified homeowners may receive zero-interest loans - loans that do not have to be repaid until the home is either sold, refinanced, or the deed is transferred. This program is a special advantage for those on fixed incomes. Qualified RDA-approved contractors provide the services for homeowners - ranging from heater installation to roofing and kitchen and bathroom repairs. According to the guidelines of this successful county program, the cost of the work should not exceed $15,000. To find out more, contact the Authority at 215-781-8711, or email at email@example.com, or visit their web site at www.bcrda.com.
Air Quality Index - Check it Daily
We now have a link to a web site that forecasts the air quality index on a daily basis. This is very important, expecially during the summertime, when working or exercising or playing in an unhealthy air environment can do us harm. To check the air quality foir today, simply click on this link www.airqualitypartnership.org.
Hero Support Flag Program
Lower Southampton's Hero Support Program has begun. This program will honor those service men and women along with their families who are deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf region. If you are aware of someone deployed in any of these areas please contact the township at the email address or phone number noted at the bottom of this page. The program consists of a service flag being displayed until the service man or woman returns. Once back from active duty, a permanent American flag will be installed with the name of the returning service person. This flag display is available to be seen in the general meeting room at the Lower South Municipal Building. The display and flags were donated by the Feasterville Business Association.

PLAYWICKI FARMS - 110 ACRES OF OUTDOOR PLEASURE
THE LABYRINTH AT PLAYWICKI
The Labyrinth was inspired by an ancient symbol for harmony and unity, the Vesica Pisces. Two symmetrical circles overlap forming an eye-shaped center enclosing the Common Ground shared by the
circles. Following the events of 9-11, designer Connie Fenty created this pattern to be walked for reflection and meditation.
Evidence of existing Labyrinth patterns date as far back as 1300 B.C. Although its history is mysterious, it is believed that the Labyrinth was used by many ancient cultures including: Greek, Peruvian, Native American and European. This pattern was chosen to represent a part of Playwicki Farm History when the Native Americans and the European settlers lived together in harmony.
The Labyrinth was completed in the spring of 2007. It was built largely by community volunteers with assistance from the Lower Southampton Public Works Department. Local businesses who contributed materials were: Fizzano Brothers Concrete Products, Castle Garden Center, Feeney's and The Brickman Group Ltd., with funding provided by the Playwicki Farm Foundation.
The Labyrinth is dedicated in memory of Sue McKeon, former Lower Southampton Township Manager, Supervisor and President of the Playwicki Farm Foundation, whose love of Playwicki Farm helped preserve the property for the community's enjoyment and made this Labyrinth possible.
