50th Anniversary Open House Postponed until Friday, September 11
from 3 to 7pm Due to Forecasted Heavy Rainfall

Marvin A. Anders, long-time NPWA board member, to be honored with lobby dedication and ribbon cutting

Lansdale, Pa—September 9, 2015—Due to forecasted heavy rainfall and thunderstorms for Thursday, North Penn Water Authority (NPWA) is postponing the 50th Anniversary Open House event until Friday, September 11, 2015 from 3 pm to 7 pm at their Operations Center located at 300 Forty Foot Road in Towamencin.  NPWA has planned many outdoor activities and demonstrations and wants to ensure a successful and safe event and apologizes for any inconvenience this may pose for their customers and the community.

In honor of 50 years serving the community, NPWA invites the public to tour the Operations Center, view highlights of the past 50 years and see demonstrations related to the NPWA water system, like valve turning, leak detection, how a fire hydrant works and how customer meters are read. This family-friendly event will include light refreshments, hot dogs, soft pretzels, popcorn, finger sandwiches, and an ice cream truck with various ice cream and water ice treats, to enjoy and a celebration cake will be cut to mark this momentous occasion.  A face painter and balloon sculptor will also be on site.

Every attendee will also receive a free Refill from the Tap water bottle, a stainless steel, double-walled insulated water bottle that will keep water cold for hours. Refill from the Tap is a new campaign aimed at reducing plastic waste from going into landfills while saving customers money.

At 5:30 pm, a number of local, state and federal elected officials will honor the Authority with certificates to mark the anniversary and Anthony J. Bellitto, Jr. PE, executive director of NPWA, will honor Marvin A. Anders, a long-serving NPWA board member for 40 years, with a lobby dedication and ribbon cutting. Anders joined the NPWA Board of Directors in 1975.  Before retiring, Anders was the chairman of Univest and worked at the bank for 47 years. Anders is also a staple in the North Penn and Souderton communities. He has served on the boards for Christopher Dock Mennonite High School and Lifepath in Sellersville, and has served on committees for Indian Creek Foundation, Penn View Christian School and Christopher Dock.  In addition to the NPWA Board, Anders continues to serve on the board of Penn Foundation.

 “This is a family-friendly event and we hope the community will join us in celebrating this milestone and see first-hand how far the water system has come over the last 50 years,” said Anthony J. Bellitto, Jr., P.E., executive director of NPWA. “We are also thrilled to honor Marvin A. Anders for his dedication to the Authority during such a momentous event. We are also looking forward to revealing our newly renovated lobby and the history of the Authority that will be displayed on the walls.”
