It has occurred to me that all Martians do not have the opportunity to donate to our website fund/operations. You could do so by mailing a check to me marked in the memo website fund. My address is located on the contact page on this site.

I am continuing a good relationship with Mayor Gregg Hartung of Mars PA. He likes to include us in some of the city functions as best he can, I rode in a car in the Fourth of July Parade and what an honor that was.
It is great news that the Borough of Mars will be awarded a $1 million grant from the RACP funds of the state of PA. It was released on the state awards webpage yesterday. It appeared in the Butler Eagle, the basic information, associated with the grant process. The official letter with details has not been received yet. A big thanks to Senator Scott Hutchinson who championed this project for us in Harrisburg. The County Commissioners and Planning Department for their support. A special thanks to NASA who we collaborate with and all the fine people locally who have been important supporters all along the way. There is much more to work to do! This is a major break through for a non-traditional approach to revitalizing our downtown for families and their children. Pictured here is Senator Hutchinson and Mayor Hartung on the caboose at the Mars Historical Society at the end of the "Walk Through Tour" of the town on Wednesday before the grant award was announced.
