CELEBRATING OUR 50th ANNIVERSARY!
Hello everyone. On August 21, 2023, we celebrated 50 years of service to our community! We have accomplished so much in the past 50 years and we are very, very proud of our continued commitment to provide comprehensive behavioral treatment options, education and support to the individuals and families of Bucks County.
One of the many ways we are acknowledging and celebrating this major milestone is with a new slogan! In May, we initiated a contest, looking to our creative, innovative and talented staff, to help us to come up with a new slogan to use for the next 50 years that will reflect our commitment to growth and expansion in the community.
PMHC employees responded and submitted twenty-one (21) different slogans to consider. The PMHC Re-Branding Committee voted and our new slogan submitted by Anitra, is:
Your Stepping Stone to a Brighter Tomorrow
The Re-Branding Committee chose their top three selections, and the following three employees, who submitted those top three slogans, received prizes for their efforts. They are:
Our next step is to work with a marketing firm to design a new logo for the agency. Stay tuned for more exciting news, as we prepare for the next 50 years of dedicated services to our community.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO US!
PMHC celebrates the Employees for all their hard work and dedication throughout the year with a Summer Party. The Summer Party was held in July at the Administration offices on Cabot Blvd. Food, music, games & prizes and a chance to socialize with colleagues made for a wonderful afternoon. A caricaturist drew portraits for anyone who wanted one done. A fun and enjoyable time was had by all.
“To keep the lights on” has been the words used by Walter Gordon to describe the primary job of the PMHC Board of Directors. Mr. Gordon or “Walt” has been doing that, and so much more, in the 39 years that he has been an active member of the Board and 18 of those years as Board President.
Walt has been a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of Penndel Mental Health Center. He has been steadfast in not only making sure that the lights stay on, but also ensuring that we uphold our Mission and give the best and most professional behavioral health and intellectual disabilities treatment, services and supports to the Lower Bucks County community.
It is with appreciation and admiration to Walt’s 39 years of service to our Agency that we acknowledge his decision to step down as Board President.
And so, at the Annual meeting on April 12th – for the first time since 2004 – a new Board President was voted in. We welcome William Massinger as Board President and say a heartfelt Thank You to Walt Gordon for his many dedicated years of service.
We will continue to keep the lights on.
In an effort to move the agency forward, we are introducing Juneteenth as a holiday acknowledged and celebrated by Penndel Mental Health Center.
Juneteenth (officially Juneteenth National Independence Day) commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. It is also often observed for celebrating African-American culture. Juneteenth’s commemoration is on the anniversary date of the June 19, 1865, announcement proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas, which was the last state of the Confederacy with institutional slavery.
Juneteenth is celebrated on June 19th, therefore, the agency will be closed in observance of Juneteenth on Monday, June 20th.
In addition, we will host in house celebrations on holidays such as Martin Luther King Day and Veterans Day.
We, as an Agency, try every day to make lives better for our clients, our employees and each other. Our efforts are not always overtly visible and we may not always succeed, but we will always commit to trying.
