My name is Tammie Dailey and I have been serving as the Mayor of Shiremanstown since April 2016. Prior to being appointed Mayor, I had served on the Borough Council for over 10 years. I have had the pleasure of living in the Borough since November 2002 with my husband Ed. Shiremanstown is a great place to live, providing its residents with a small town feel while being close to shopping, outstanding restaurants and world-class healthcare facilities. We are a part of the Mechanicsburg School District which provides our children with an excellent education. We also have access to several superb private schools in the area. Public transportation adds to the overall appeal of our centralized location, providing transportation to Harrisburg and other locations.
Shiremanstown is a small town that welcomes businesses to be a part of our community. We are in the process of introducing two-hour parking limitations in front of a few of our businesses to help make it easier for their clients to find parking in the borough.
Discover Shiremanstown- walk through town and take time to appreciate our Memorial and Manor Parks. Enjoy all that the Borough of Shiremanstown has to offer. I am convinced that one day you will be just as proud as we are to live here.
My vision for Shiremanstown has always been to make it a place where families want to live, raise their children and retire. We are served by the Mechanicsburg School District and have many opportunities for post-secondary education, including Penn State Capital Campus, Harrisburg Area Community College, Central Pennsylvania College and Dickinson School of Law to name a few.
We are fortunate to have several outstanding medical facilities close by, including Pinnacle Health System, Penn State Hershey Medical Center, and Holy Spirit Hospital. They offer full emergency and surgical capabilities, private rooms, and rehabilitation services.
Our borough is home to four churches to meet the spiritual needs of our residents: Bible Baptist Church, First Church of God, Saint John’s Lutheran Church and United Methodist Church, all of whom open their doors and their hearts to those who seek a place to worship.
The Shiremanstown Historical Society (“SHS”) is an active group in our town. They provide us with a wealth of history while making our town a more beautiful place to live. Last year SHS was able to collect donations from local businesses and not-for-profit groups and use those donations to purchase the Christmas wreaths that adorned the lamp posts in the Borough this past holiday season. They are hoping to collect more donations this year to add more wreaths for the next Christmas season. SHS did not stop with wreaths; they have also purchased flags and a solar powered town clock that will be placed in front of our fire house. Please check their website for a listing of events.
We have a great Parks and Recreation Department that plans and sponsors numerous Borough events, including our Easter Egg Hunt, Movie Night in the Park, a Borough picnic at Manor Park (with free hotdogs), our Halloween Party and our Christmas Tree Lighting. These events provide Borough residents the opportunity to get together and to make new friends.
The Borough, SHS and the Parks and Recreation Department are always looking for people to assist with community activities. Please consider becoming a volunteer. Your time and effort will go a long way to keeping our Borough a great place to live.
