At the May 22, 2019 New Hope Borough Council meeting, the New Hope Borough Junior Council Seniors were honored by the Board of State Association of Boroughs with the Distinguished Junior Council Person Awards, as well as Certificates of Recognition by State Rep Wendi Thomas.
Bucks County's first ever Junior Council of New Hope Borough is a collection of students from New Hope-Solebury High School that work together to improve aspects of the local community. The Junior Council’s efforts in the past year have been focusing on reduction of carbon footprint and creating a more sustainable community.
