BLACKLICK TWP., Oct. 7 – Joined by community members and local officials, state Rep. Frank Burns today held a ceremony to designate a bridge on state Route 71 over Coal Pit Run in Twin Rocks as the Lanzendorfer Brothers Bridge. “It is a tremendous honor to be here today, to dedicate this bridge in honor of the Lanzendorfer brothers, who have given so much to their nation and their community,” Burns said. “They are an incredible example of what it means to put service over self and to give back to your community and nation. I sincerely hope their example will encourage future generations to do the same.” The Lanzendorfer brothers, eight in all, served their nation during World War II, the Korean War and in peace time. They also served their communities in a variety of public positions, including police chief, postmaster and tax collector, and have been described by Blacklick Township officials as “pillars of the community.” EDITORS NOTE: Photos from today’s dedication may be found here.
