Millerstown Community Success INC. (a 501c3 nonprofit) has launched a new initiative called Project MOVE (Millerstown Offering Volunteer Efforts). The Project was developed to assist families in the Millerstown Community with beautification efforts in and around their homes. Individuals may need support because of age, illness, disability or economic circumstances, and MCSI decided to expand its focus on beautification to help its homeowners.

Their first project will involve painting the home of a family who is currently dealing with an illness. Much volunteer work has gone into this effort, and a group of local volunteers met at the home on recently to ready it for painting. It is hoped that Project MOVE can become an ongoing program for citizens in Millerstown. Watch for a printable application form in the near future.

Millerstown Community Success, Inc. - MCSI
In August, 2003, discussions began to take place regarding the appearance of our town square and the approaches into town, as well. Local resident Curt Black saw a need and a purpose for both visual and physical improvements, and with only a few phone calls, got a strong response from other townspeople. Many meetings have taken place at Borough Hall since that time, and the following ideas have been or will be implemented. First of all, this very website was discussed and approved before the Borough Council at their November 2003 meeting.
In the first step necessary to begin the mission, new officers were voted on and installed at the January 2004 meeting. This is due to state and federal regulations pertaining to non-profit organizations seeking to obtain grants and funding for community projects and improvements. The present committee now consists of the following volunteers :
Kathy Magill, President
Teresa Hunker, Vice-President
Sherry Black, Treasurer
Wendy Sweger, Secretary
Board of Directors ...
Curt Black, Vicki Shea, Ellie Switzer, Audrey Kerr, Donna Showers, Harold & Olga Brookhart.
Committee Chairs - Funding- Curt Black, Beautification- Ellie Switzer, Winter Fest- Donna Showers
Supporting Members ... Mid Savercool, Krista Donbaugh, Annette Levan, Bob Finicle.
The purpose of this organization is to beautify and revitalize the borough of Millerstown while preserving its historical significance.
Millerstown is a small rural community in northeastern Perry County. It is the oldest planned community in the county and at one time had the most stone buildings in the state of Pennsylvania. The surrounding area is agriculture based land and the borough is home to people employed in the town and surrounding areas, including Harrisburg and Lewistown.
We are asking you to support our endeavors. We realize that we will need to meet our goals and objectives without burdening the citizens of Millerstown. Your support, either personally, financially, technically, or politically will be greatly appreciated.
