2012 Aston Township Calendar

Coming soon, the 2012 Aston Township Calendar!!!  This year the distribution of the calendars are being handled differently from previous years, due to complaints that residents were not receiving them in their mail.  This year we are pleased to announce that throughout the month of January the Public Works Department, along with other members of the township, have committed to hand deliver the calendars to the residents.  If you have not received your calendar by Tuesday, January 31, 2012, please feel free to contact George Needles at the Aston Township Administrative Office, by phone at (610) 494-1636 or by email:  gneedles1@astontownship.net.  He will be glad to get you a copy.

Winter Is Here

Winter is here and the Public Works Department would like to remind you to stay safe.  During and immediately after a winter storm, the easiest way for us to keep the roads clear and drivable is for you to stay off them until we get them cleared.  If you do need to drive during a storm please exercise extreme caution. 

Snow removal and winter storms can be tough on everyone.  Please don’t forget your neighbors.  If you are able, make sure you offer them help.  Always check in on your elderly neighbors to make sure they are okay.  Cooperation and lending a helping hand go a long way in making a great community.

2011 Tree Lighting and Fun Festival

2011 Tree Lighting & Winter Fun Festival

2011 Tree Lighting & Winter Fun Festival

The 2011 Tree Lighting was a huge success thanks to the extra efforts of the Citizen’s Advisory Committee and the donation of time and resources from local businesses and residents! This year’s event was expanded to include Free family friendly game and activities, snacks, and a visit from Santa. The Library also added to the fun by inviting Mr. Malcom to read The Polar Express.

Perhaps most significantly, the event was moved to a Friday evening, which organizers suspect encouraged a much greater turnout than in years past. Thanks to all who donated their time and resources to make this event so successful. We look forward the new Tree Lighting and Winter Fun Festival format to be used again in 2012!

Police Urge Safety Precautions

Aston Police

Due to recent thefts from vehicles and homes, Aston police are advising residents to avoid keeping valuables in parked vehicles or to lock valuables in the trunk. The most common items stolen from vehicles are purses, wallets, and electronic equipment, like laptop computers and GPS units.

Break-ins have occurred both day and night, often targeting unlocked cars or homes.

As a precaution, residents should keep vehicle windows closed and doors locked, while the doors and windows of the house should be locked, as well.

Whenever possible, park vehicles in a well-lit area, and keep the outside of your home illuminated.

Residents should immediately report any suspicious persons and/or vehicles in their neighborhood by dialing 911.
