Historic Mount Joy Square - Mr. Christian volunteered his services to the Mount Joy Borough Community by donating his professional services to create this revitalization plan.
Vest Pocket Park, Mount Joy - Mr. Christian also completed plans for a vest pocket park which has been constructed in Mount Joy Borough at the intersection of Barbara and Main Streets. Mr. Christian’s interest in revitalizing the many intriguing Boroughs of Lancaster County has motivated him to volunteer his time to beautify his own. His efforts earned him a “Certificate of Appreciation” from the Mayor of Mount Joy Borough for his “community volunteerism and outstanding leadership” as well as his “quality efforts and unselfish service.”
Rotary Park, Mount Joy – Mr. Christian donated his services to fully design and provide construction administration and observations services for the new Rotary Park in Mount Joy Borough as part of his position as co-chair of the Rotary Club of Mount Joy's community service project to honor the 2005 Centennial Celebration of Rotary International. The park consists of two soccer fields, two baseball fields and other site amenities. Other project duties include organizing fund-raising opportunities, grant writing for additional funds, coordinating sub-consultants, etc. He received a Paul Harris Fellow Award for his generous in-kind contribution of professional services.
Mount Joy American Legion/VFW Veterans’ Memorial, Mount Joy – Mr. Christian donated his services to completely design and administer bids for a Veterans’ Memorial Garden on behalf of the American Legion Post 185 and the Mount Joy VFW Post 5752. The memorial garden features a circular walkway, benches, the American flag, flags for the five service branches and various relocated and new memorial monuments. The circular pathway is broken and a cross monument will ultimately be displayed to symbolize those Mount Joy Veterans who have not returned from their time of service, contributing the ultimate sacrifice so that we may all enjoy our freedoms.
