Glenn Walbert Honored For 30 years Service to Hanover

From Secret Agent 104 - On Tuesday night, Glenn R. Walbert, participated in his last Hanover Township Board of Supervisors meeting. First elected in 1986, Glenn served the last 10 years as the Board’s Vice Chairman.

In attendance was representatives from Senator Toomey, Congressman Dent and PA Representative Marcia Hahn all who recognized Glenn and presented him with proclamations and citations. PA Senator Mario Scavello attended and presented Glenn with a Citation from the Senate of Pennsylvania. Offering public input was former Township Engineer Jim Birdsall, Police Chief Roy Seiple and Supervisor-elect Michael Prendeville. Warm applause followed each one of the presentations and comments from those in attendance.

Chairman John N. Diacogiannis then asked those on the dais for their input. Warm thoughts were offered by Supervisors Jack Nagle, Mark Tanczos, Steve Salvesen and Diacogiannis. Salvesen and Diacogiannis were both members of the Board when Glenn was elected in 1986.

Solicitor James Broughal, Engineer Brien Kocher, Director of Administration Ryan Kish and Manager Jay Finnigan also offered comments. All spoke of Glenn’s commitment to the residents and business community in Hanover. Common descriptives used by everyone throughout the evening were ethics, honesty, tireless and professionalism.

Solicitor Broughal summed up everyone’s thoughts when he commented, “Over the years you may have had many equals, but there was no one that could beat you.”

After Glenn was showered with acolytes, proclamations and citations Chairman Diacogiannis passed the gavel to Glenn and allowed him to preside as Chairman for his last meeting. Also in attendance for his last meeting was Glenn’s wife Karen. They recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
