Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver attended UGI’s ceremonial groundbreaking at the Riverside Borough Hall in May for the company’s largest Growth Extension Tariff (GET Gas) expansion project. In total, the GET Gas project will provide natural gas service to more than 600 homes. Riverside is the first “unserved” area that benefited from GET Gas in Northeast Pennsylvania, and UGI will invest more than $3 million to serve the residents of Riverside over the life of the project.

It was an honor for Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver to recognize Haven Ministry for recently celebrating its 25th anniversary. Haven Ministry opened its doors in April 1991. Approximately two years earlier, concerned citizens from various churches realized that there was a growing number of area residents who found themselves unable to provide the basic necessities of food and shelter. The group formed a committee to look for solutions. With contributions and support from individuals, churches and grants, the committee was able to establish Haven Ministry. Haven Ministry purchased a building and supplies to care for its neighbors by providing emergency shelter, nurturing and advocacy for individuals and families in need in the Central Susquehanna Valley area. Throughout its laudable history, Haven Ministry has made inestimable contributions to the welfare of society through a sense of fellowship through its programs, which are designed to enhance the quality of life for all.
