The 35th annual Upper Dublin Medals Program was as spectacular as the inaugural event in 1985. There were 180+ attendees at the community-wide program, held at Manufacturers’ Golf & Country Club, to honor the 2019 Upper Dublin Medal recipients, student finalists, previous medal winners and event sponsors. When community partners work cooperatively and indefatigably to honor their citizens, educators, students, and business or non-profit organizations, the foundation of values, respect and excellence is bolstered.

Deepest appreciation goes to event sponsors, including: BET Investments, Platinum sponsor; Sal Paone Builders, Silver; George’s Market at Dreshertown and Temple University Ambler, Bronze; Ambler Area YMCA; Boles, Smyth Associates; and Timoney Knox, LLP, Friends. Thanks also to Kirkland Printing for donating the keepsake program booklets and to Ambler Flower Shop for supplying boutonnieres for the honorees. Sincere appreciation to The Ambler Gazette for articles about the five medalists and announcements of the event.

The program presenters, Upper Dublin Township, Upper Dublin School District, the Fort Washington Business Alliance, and the Upper Dublin Education Foundation, which benefits from event proceeds, gives credit to a caring community that continues to support this prestigious program, unique to Upper Dublin.
