The Feasterville Business Association is hosting the annual event Saturday morning.
The Feasterville Business Association invites families to come out Saturday morning at 10 a.m. to Russell Elliot Memorial Park and participate in the annual Easter Egg Hunt. With dozens of plastic eggs dumped on the ground, it's really more of a scramble than a hunt, but semantics does not get in the way of the fun time. "It's great to watch the kids run around after the eggs," said Matthew Gilbert, director of the Lower Southampton Department of Parks and Recreation. "It's even better when the parents jump in." If the forecasts are correct, it looks like the weather will hold out long enough for the hunt. According to the National Weather Service, the Lower Southampton area will see temperatures in the 40s with a high of 49, but no rain …

Township board of supervisors thanked the firefighters and EMTs for their dedication to the volunteer services.
When a house on the 100 block of Orchard Lane caught fire last Christmas, three members of the Trevose Fire Co. were called to work their way past the thick smoke and rescue an elderly man trapped on the second floor. Because of their successful efforts to carry the resident out of the house and into safety, firefighters Brian Armstrong, Chris Doster and Tim Doster were awarded lifesaving medals by Lower Southampton Fire Marshal William Oettinger at Wednesday evening's board of supervisors meeting.

Patch's Tom Sofield marks his final day.
June 1, 2011: Levittown Woman Rescued From Cliff At Tyler State Park - Weeks after starting with Patch.com in Bucks County, that was my first byline on the newly minted Levittown Patch. It was the start of the just over 540 stories I’ve covered for the site up until today. Thursday marks my last day at Patch.com. (This time it’s not a fake out like the last time when I moved to a new position in December.) I have truly enjoyed being out in the community and learning issues and meeting the people over the past two years and especially over the past six months I’ve served as the site's lead reporter. From covering a local sweets shop to middle-of-the-night police news - my time at Patch has been a wild ride. One I’ll never forget. I’d like …
