Locals are moving closer to restarting the hands of time.
A sign erected at Miller Meadow at the intersection of York and Horsham roads in Hatboro shows the status of fundraising for the borough's 200-year-old clock, which sits atop borough hall.
Hatboro was awarded a $25,000 grant to cover half of the estimated costs of restoring and preserving the circa 1812 clock. The Millbrook Society has spearheaded collection efforts to obtain the matching 50 percent of the cost.
Donations can be mailed to Millbrook Society Clock Fund, P.O. Box 506, Hatboro PA 19040.
