There was complete silence while David Tuck spoke to the student body of Morrisville High School on May 23rd. The entire audience was captivated and heartbroken for this Holocaust survivor from WWII. For over an hour and a half the humble and humorous gentleman told his story from the time of his birth to when he was released from one of the most infamous concentration camps where he had to lie about his age and become a mechanic in order to live.
Young scientists could be seen all over the Morrisville Intermediate/Senior High School cafeteria demonstrating their projects to family, friends and judges. Through the funding of Morrisville School District 21st Century Community Learning Centers and the PTO, the first Morrisville Science Fair was held recently. Thirty-two students in the third through sixth grades showed off their science experiments.
With an upcoming training session in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Master Naturalist program will prepare substantially more citizens to become volunteer leaders reaching out to their communities through natural resource conservation education, citizen science, and stewardship.

The Boy Scouts of America Bucks County Council’s Playwicki District recently challenged the Troops and Packs in the district to give back to their communities by participating in the district’s first annual Spring Clean Up.
Some of the units performed a service that has been a tradition for their group. As they have done for over 10 years, Pack 99, which is chartered by the Newtown Grant Home Owners Association Masters Board, cleaned up the roadside along a stretch of Route 413/Durham Road that passes by Newtown Grant. Eight Webelo I Cub Scouts from Den 11 collected over 10 bags of debris.
