Girl Scout Troop No. 50476 Recognized by Mayor Ken LaSota for raising $1,000 to purchase a new bulletproof vest for HPD K-9 Officer Rocky.  Thank you!!!


Borough of Heidelberg

Mayoral Proclamation


A Proclamation OF THE MAYOR OF THE Borough of Heidelberg, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, recognizing Girl ScoUt Troop NO. 50476 For its efforts in raising funds to purchase a bullet proof vest for k-9 officer Rocky.


Whereas, the Girl Scouts of America has, since its inception in 1912 under the foresight and guidance of Juliette Gordon Low, strived to help its members grow, develop, and mature in ways that best advance them as stellar citizens of the Nation, stewards of the planet, and contributors to the communities that call them home, and;


Whereas,  among those numerous Girl Scout Troops across the country, Girl Scout Troop No. 50476 has consistently occupied a position among the most active, generous, and compassionate Troops in the Country, and;


Whereas, because Girl Scout Troop No. 50476 became aware that the Heidelberg Police Department was lacking funds to secure a bullet proof vest for K-9 Officer Rocky, Girl Scout Troop 50476 eagerly and enthusiastically undertook a major troop-wide project to raise monies to purchase a vest, and by means of several creative, imaginative and productive fundraising activities, raised in excess of one thousand dollars to help offset the cost of a vest, and;


Whereas,  properly outfitted with a bullet proof vest, Officer Rocky can now more safely and efficiently patrol the Borough of Heidelberg and better serve and protect her citizens, and;


Whereas, because it is all together fitting and proper to formally and publicly recognize Girl Scout Troop No. 50476 for its service to the Heidelberg Police Department, to K-9 Officer Rocky, and to the people of the Borough of Heidelberg.


Therefore, be it proclaimed,   that on behalf of a grateful citizenry, an appreciative Borough Council, a thankful Heidelberg Police Department, and a happy and well protected Officer Rocky, I hereby recognize and thank the Girl Scout Troop No. 50476 for its efforts in raising funds to help procure a bullet proof vest for Heidelberg K-9 Police Officer Rocky, and do hereby proclaim that Troop 50476 has more than lived up to the Girl Scout promise “To serve God and my Country, to help people at all times, and to live by the Girl Scout Law.”


Approved, Examined and Proclaimed by me this 16th Day of September, 2014.

Sample Heidelberg Military Banner

 Heidelberg to Recognize its Veterans through A

“Main Street” Banner Program


Heidelberg, PA – through a program presented by Mayor Ken LaSota the Borough of Heidelberg is offering an interesting opportunity to salute our brave men and women who are currently serving or those who have served in the military by creating and displaying a 24” x 36” military banner along the soon-to-be completed East Railroad (PA Route 50) Streetscape District.


The banners that will feature the name, rank and photograph of the local soldiers, sailors or marines, will be displayed during upcoming patriotic holidays such as Independence Day, Veterans Day and future Memorial Day; and they will be hung from the new decorative light pole along Route 50.  There is a $70 one-time cost to join the program.  Participants will receive one 24”x 36” Military Banner to be displayed by the Borough along Route 50, one 24”x 36” Military Banner or two 12”x 18” banners for personal display and web presence on the Heidelberg Military website at www.troopbanners.com/HeidelbergBorough   


A sample of what the banners will look like and the Heidelberg Military Banner Program Application can be found in the Borough Office, at the annual Memorial Day Ceremony on May 26th, 10AM at Heidelberg Park or at www.troopbanners.com/HeidelbergBorough   A good quality photograph electronically scanned to 600 dpi or higher is to be sent to hmunson@htmdesigns.com or included in hard copy with your application. 


The Military Banner Program was developed and is made possible by HTM Designs.  Heidelberg along with many other communities in southwestern Pennsylvania have partnered with HTM Designs to publicly recognize and pay tribute to our County’s service men and women.
