Perkasie Borough will take part in “Bells Across Pennsylvania Day” in support of first responders, health-care workers and essential employees, and their ongoing efforts during the coronavirus pandemic. On May 3, area residents and churches are asked to ring bells at 7 p.m. for three minutes, with each minute representing one of the following principles:
• To recognize and honor first responders, health-care workers, and employees of grocery stores, pharmacies and other life-sustaining businesses who have maintained essential services while at risk of infection from COVID-19;
• To show solidarity with elected officials and residents of municipalities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, all of whom are fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines together; and
• To demonstrate a collective resolve that Pennsylvanians will prevail over COVID-19 and work tirelessly to ensure that their businesses and civic life will thrive once again.
“Bells Across Pennsylvania Day” is an initiative of the Pennsylvania State Mayors’ Association.
