SUPPORT THE HAVERFORD CIVIC ASSOCIATION

HAVERFORD CIVIC ASSOCIATION

 ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

 Each year at this time, we reach out to our Haverford neighbors and business owners and ask that they join, or renew their membership in, the Haverford Civic Association (“HCA”).  The HCA is a not-for-profit organization that promotes community strength, acts as a liaison between residents and government, manages neighborhood beautification, celebrates our open space, supports local festivities and provides a voice to the Federation of Civic Associations.  The HCA board is comprised of Haverford residents who serve voluntarily and meet monthly (July and August excepted).

This past year, HCA met with local residents or business owners in seven matters before the township, planted and maintained Haverford Station Road (which received a horticultural award) maintained the planters at the Haverford train station, assisted in the promotion of Sharpe Park and Bird Sanctuary with the Garden Workers,  sponsored the Second Annual “Art in Sharpe Park,” installed and maintained the seasonal “snowflakes” along Lancaster Avenue and acted on key matters brought before the Lower Merion Federation of Civic Associations.

HCA typically holds an annual gathering in Sharpe Park in September of each year.  Due to scheduling conflicts, holiday schedules and daylight savings time, a suitable date was not found.  As such, Twilight in the Park will not be held this year.

We do offer an alternative.  We are very pleased to announce that John Fry, the president of Drexel University and a resident of Haverford, will address the HCA on November 20, 2012.  Mr. Fry will give a very informative presentation followed by a question and answer session.  We invite all Haverford residents and business owners to attend this most interesting event.  Admission is complimentary.

As an added bonus, you will also be able to meet and greet three township commissioners affiliated with HCA, Steven K. Lindner of Ward 4 (south of Montgomery Ave), Cheryl B. Gelber, Esq. of Ward 5 (East of Grays Lane) and V. Scott Zelov of Ward 10 (west of Grays Lane).

Please consider a new or renewal membership in the Haverford Civic Association.  Your contribution is our sole source of funding.  Help us support community betterment and foster good will and a spirit of cooperation within Haverford.

Once again, PLEASE JOIN HCA and spread the word………

 November 20, 2012 from 7:45 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

John Fry, president of Drexel University,

will address the Haverford Civic Association at the Merion Cricket Club, Montgomery Avenue, Haverford

Ardmore fire chief Tom Hayden is still in intensive care at the University of Pennsylvania following the Friday evening fire in which he rescued a 102 year-old woman from a kitchen fire in her Villanova home.

Hayden arrived first at the fire in the 2200 block of North Ridge Lane and brought the woman out of the smoke filled home. Hayden suffered smoke inhalation and was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Firefighters from Merion Fire Company of Ardmore thanked the community for all the offers of assistance, prayers and kind wishes on their website. The firefighters said Chief Hayden is expected to make a complete recovery.

Lower Merion Deputy Fire Marshal Jim McCoy said the woman was released from the hospital on Saturday and is home with her family.
