“Catawissa Dreaming”: Making Catawissa the place people want to hang their hats

The Catawissa Borough Economic Development Committee invites all current and former borough residents to complete an online survey designed to learn what residents want from their Borough in terms of making Catawissa a “place people want to hang their hats.” It is your chance to share your vision and ‘dreams’ for Catawissa — what the town has meant to you in the past, what it means now, and what you’d like like it to become in the future.

You can complete the survey online at http://bit.ly/catawissadream . The survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and will remain open for at least a month.

Thank you

Catawissa Borough Council would like to thank the Catawissa VFW for the generous donation they made to help offset the cost of the window replacement project at the Community Center, which is currently undergoing renovations. Their thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.
