The borough announced recently that nominations are now open for the award. The recipient need not be a resident of the Borough, but their service has directly impacted Lansdale over an extended period of years.

 Lansdale Borough

Lansdale Council President Mary Fuller announced the award nominations were open at the recent council session.

“We look for candidates who have had an impact on the lives of Lansdale Borough residents. Doesn’t mean they had to live in the borough, but certainly had to make an impact for 25 or more years — not necessarily in the same role, but as a body of work,” she said.

The brightest and most influential winner will be honored at August’s Founders Day celebrations.

According to The Reporter, each year, a committee that includes prior winners helps determine the lifetime award, given by town nonprofit Discover Lansdale.

Past recipients include longtime fire chief Jay Daveler in 2012; borough Parks and Recreation Director Carl Saldutti in 2013; North Penn High School principal and Marching Knights band leader Stephen Frederick in 2014; longtime editor of The Reporter and Lansdale Historical Society President Dick Shearer in 2015; business owner and former Lansdale Business Association head Margie Booz in 2016; North Penn Boys and Girls Club CEO Bob Kreamer in 2017; Lansdale Cemetery caretaker Richard Stricker in 2018; Frank and Georgette Koehler, owners of Koehler’s Jewelers and Diamond Merchants, in 2019; Ray Walton of the four-generation heating oil company Clyde S. Walton Inc. in 2021; and ‘Pastor Sue’ Bertolette of St. John’s United Church of Christ in 2023.
