Watsontown Walks

Watsontown Borough is pleased to announce a contest that takes advantage of our brand new walking track by getting our residents outside and exercising this summer. The contest runs from July 1st to August 31st and the winner will be whoever logs the most miles during that time. And while we would love for you to try out the Borough’s ¼ mile track, walking anywhere in town will count towards your total. We’ll be on the “Honor System” and prizes will be awarded at the September 9th Council meeting. Tracking forms are available at the Borough office and on the Borough’s website at watsontownpa.info. All forms must be turned in by 5:00 PM on September 5th. Please contact the Borough office to enter
