Some in this Pa. community don’t want a casino. Will it matter? Ron Southwick, PennLive · June 4, 2019 at 6:00 am For Michele King, the tornado that struck the Morgantown area last week revealed the true nature of the community. The tornado hammered Caernarvon Township and Morgantown in Berks County, damaging several homes. Neighbors from surrounding communities in the Twin Valley area reached out to lend a hand. “That’s who we are,” King said. King relishes the tight-knit community. She and a number of neighbors worry that Penn National Gaming’s plans to build a casino in the Morgantown area will do lasting damage to the community. Penn National is seeking approval to build a $111 million casino in Caernarvon, just off the Pennsylvania Turnpike and about 12 miles from the company’s headquarters in Wyomissing.
