NEW FOR 2020 Drift Jam - July 18
DRIFT JAM is Muhlenberg Township’s newest summer event. This one of a kind experience for this area offers the joy of a lazy afternoon spent floating down the Schuylkill River from the Leesport Area in your kayak, canoe or tube to Jim Dietrich Park. At the end of the float you will exit at Jim Dietrich Park to enjoy a Clam Bake (additional food will be available) and a beverage to quench your thirst after a long afternoon on the river. There will be live music to keep the party going from 4 to 9PM. This is an open event, you don’t need to float to enjoy the after party. A limited amount of kayaks and canoes will be available for rental (you will have to provide your own tube). Registration for equipment and/or Clam Bake pre-orders will be available online at https://secure.rec1.com/PA/muhlenberg-township-pa/catalog from April 1st to July 3rd. Equipment rental will be provided by Blue Marsh Outdoors.

There are several senior groups in the Muhlenberg area. Many seniors belong to a few of these groups. We are looking to the future and wanted to start having a few meetings during the year where all clubs come together for fellowship. We are hoping to establish a foundation for a continuation of the groups through these consolidated meetings. These meetings will meet at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church at the corner of Tuckerton and Stoudts Ferry Bridge Rd. from 11AM to 2PM. Each meeting will consist of an informational speaker, then lunch followed by entertainment. The cost will be $10/person and pre-registration would be required at the Township Building or online. Please don’t forget to register if you want to attend.
