Would you like to become an event contributor or volunteer? Let’s see what we can do together. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Borough Building during business hours.
Bullock-Pens Park: Preserving Nature for Generations
Open dawn to dusk 365 days a year. Free to all.
Bullock-Pens Park is the home of Churchill’s own Nature Sanctuary. The borough, along with a dedicated group of individuals, have maintained this wooded hillside retreat with a tranquil natural setting for you to enjoy. Grab your sneakers--or hiking boots or snowshoes—and rediscover this hidden gem. Explore the invigorating one-mile loop trail (200 foot ascent, steep and/or gradual trail) though the woods in any season. Leashed dogs are welcome. Join us in working to improve and preserve this hidden sanctuary. Find out what’s happening at www.Facebook.com/FONSABPP.
Bullock-Pens Park including all other recreation and open space components with proposed passive or active greenways and trails are in the Borough of Churchill's Comprehensive Plan.
History Initiative: Tales of Churchill
Do you have old documents, photos, newspaper articles, or scrapbooks about living in our community over the years, especially before 2000? Maybe you have old Women’s Club papers, memories of Churchill Schools, or record of famous visitors? Please consider donating them for our historical perspective. We’d love to add to our online history of the borough, which is available in the NOTES SECTION of FACEBOOK.COM/CHURCHILLREC. We will be happy to return the originals back to you. Thank you so much for preserving memories for all to enjoy! To contribute: contact the Borough Office and tell us you’d like to contribute for Diana’s History Project. Or use email@example.com. Or post it yourself (items so submitted will be subject to editing for clarity and promotional content).
