The Lukens Family
As many of you may already know, a devastating house fire on December 13th in Schwenksville destroyed the Lukens family home and claimed the lives of their 2 young sons.  As the family copes with this tragic loss, several relief funds have been established for those wishing to provide charitable support to the Lukens Family. 

  • The Montgomery County Sherrif’s Office has set up a fund.  Checks can be made payable the “Lukens Family Fund” and mailed to: Lukens Family Fund, c/o Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Box 311, Norristown, PA  19404.
  • TD Bank Account: Those wishing to donate can send checks to any TD Bank branch made out to the Lukens Family Fund.
  • Organized by a family friend, the following GoFundMe page is accepting donations: https://www.gofundme.com/lukensfamilyfund.

Although Lower Frederick Township was not directly involved in setting up any of these relief efforts and makes no representations regarding them, we will attempt to keep you updated on any future endeavors to support the Lukens family.



In an effort to correct the problem of speeding in Lower Frederick Township, our Police Department has been conducting speed studies in various locations throughout the township.  These studies have shown some serious speeding in areas where the department cannot effectively set up enforcement efforts.  A copy of the speed study can be viewed via the following link: Spring Mount Traffic Study, 2017

Pennsylvania is the only state in the nation that doesn’t give local law enforcement the authority to use radar to enforce speed limits.  Lower Frederick Township Police Department and Supervisors support the efforts of Senator Bob Mensch to pass Senate Bill 251 which would permit municipal police departments to use Radar for speed detection.  In Lower Frederick Township this would allow enforcement in areas where methods currently available are not effective.  It is expected that speed limits could then be properly enforced with the hope of substantially reducing average speeds.  Additionally, SB 251 would place a revenue cap on the amount of money a municipality may keep from speeding tickets (20% of their municipal budget) and outline calibration standards for the use of RADAR.

We urge residents to contact Senator Mensch so that he and other members of the Pennsylvania Senate see as many people as possible supporting this effort.  Please click on the following link and fill in the response box to show your support of Radar for traffic safety in Lower Frederick Township. 


Some sample wording is provided below if you would like to use it:

“Senator Mensch,
I’d like to urge you to Vote to pass SB 251 to allow municipal police departments to use radar.  In Lower Frederick Township we have a number of areas where our local police cannot use traditional means of enforcement due to sight clearance issues and such.  Radar would assist our police department greatly in these areas where we have speeding issues due to drivers cutting through the township on their way to and from Harleysville, Schwenksville, PA turnpike, etc.”
