Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Tom and Karen Burns leading an army of motivated and persistent citizens, Beavertown won $10,000 in the Reader's Digest "We Hear You America" campaign for 2012. The borough council received the payment from Reader's Digest, and will be using it for some improvements to the borough building as well as giving some back to the community throughout the summer.
