Pay a Parking Ticket, Learn About History

A display about the lives of 20 Radnor residents who died in World War I is currently at the Radnor Township building.

 

If you need to go to the Radnor Township municipal building to pay a parking ticket or apply for a permit, spend a few extra minutes learning about some of the Radnor residents who gave their lives in World World I.

A display in the atrium of the building shows the work that a class of St. Katharine of Siena School students did earlier this year as part of the local organization, Saving Hallowed Ground, which aims to restore and save America’s war monuments.

The display will be up until Veterans Day, November 11.

"Twenty WWI soldiers are now brought back to life," said Wayne's Marty Costello, Commander of Delaware County for the American Legion and a founder of Saving Hallowed Ground.

The students, Costello and Eugene Hough, a monument restorer and a founder of Saving Hallowed Ground, were recognized by Radnor's Board of Commissioners on Monday, Oct. 8 for their efforts.

"The hope is that we can set example for other municipalities across the country," said Hough. "Having students get involved early on in life, they will become more involved and committed citizens."
