Properties of Merit 2013

The 7th Annual Properties of Merit awards were presented on November 13 at a reception held at McCoole's Arts and Events Place. Properties of Merit was created for owners to show pride in their houses and downtown businessees. Where other cities and towns have had to cancel similar programs, Quakertown has thrived thanks to the tireless efforts of the committee members: Jann Paulovitz, Missy Rose, Lynn Kraft, and Nancy Buckner. Quakertown Alive! would also like to thank First Savings for recognizing the importance of this program and acting as the major exclusive sponsor for Properties of Merit once again.
