On Monday, 8:00AM. there will be a flag lowering/raising ceremony in front of the 7 flag poles of the Northampton Township building located at 55 Township Rd, Richboro.

Included in this ceremony will be a wreath laying by the families of our two Northampton soldiers who were killed in action. They were Army PFC Bobby Dembowski, Jr. and Army Master Sgt. Ken Elwell. We will never forget Bobby and Ken and the service they gave while paying the ultimate price, Bobby Dembowski 6 years ago on May 24, 2007 and Ken Elwell, almost 2 years ago on July 17, 2011.
