While Dublin will observe the 100th anniversary of its founding with a weekend celebration in September, Hayes wants to see something more permanent left behind That’s why he’s personally spearheading the Mayor’s “Race for the Clock” to raise funds for the purchase and installation of a town clock.
“After the popcorn is cleaned up, the last float leaves, and the musicians pack up their instruments, we want to memorialize our centennial celebration for the next 100 years,” said Hayes.
To finance the project, the borough is selling commemorative bricks that will be placed at the base of the clock, which will be located on borough-owned property at Main Street and Middle/Maple Avenues. Two brick sizes are available: 6 inches by 12 inches ($150) or 6 inches by 6 inches ($75). Either size can be personalized with engraving.
“This is a special opportunity to have your family’s name or business name forever be a part of the borough’s fabric,” said Hayes.
Brick order forms are available online at the borough’s website (www.dublinborough.org)
Scheduled for Friday, September 7 through Sunday, September 9, the borough’s 100th Anniversary celebration will feature several family-oriented activities including a 5K run/Walk, the “Decades of Dublin” parade, live music by The Philadelphia Funk Authority, Antique and Muscle car shows, a pancake breakfast, and a spectacular fireworks.
