Subject: Resolution – Commemorating the 200th Anniversary of Stroud Township

In the near future, we will be introducing a resolution celebrating and commemorating the 200th anniversary of Stroud Township, Monroe County.

Stroud Township was formed on January 22, 1817, and was named after Jacob Stroud, an early settler. In 1840, Stroud Township had an estimated population of 1,206 residents. It was the early colonists’ commitment to education and faith as well as the area’s continuous development in industry and tourism that led to significant growth. According to the most recent United States census, Stroud Township now boasts of a population of 19,213 proud and faithful residents.

On Sunday, January 22, 2017, members of Stroud Township’s Bicentennial Committee and officials from the Brodhead Creek Conservation District, the Brodhead Creek Regional Authority, the Pocono Arts Council and the Monroe County Historical Association collectively invited residents to an open house for the purpose of commemorating the bicentennial since the founding of Stroud Township.

Therefore, in the spirit of celebrating this extraordinary milestone, we ask that our colleagues please join us as co-sponsors of this commemorative resolution.
