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

Our LABYRINTH

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.
