Aston Children have a Hopping Good Time at Annual Easter Egg Hunt!

Chilly weather did not deter hundreds of children from attending and enjoying the Aston Township Easter Egg Hunt, which took place March 28 on the grounds of the community center.

Carrying baskets and bags of all sizes, children were separated into age groups and had a wonderful time collecting brightly colored Easter eggs.

Following the hunt, participants ventured into the gymnasium where they were served refreshments and were given the opportunity to have their pictures taken with the Easter Bunny.

This past President’s Day (February 13th-15th, 2015), IceWorks hosted a youth ice hockey tournament featuring 93 teams competing in 17 different divisions. The IceWorks President’s Day Tournament is just one of  about a dozen large-scale national tournaments offered throughout the year at IceWorks.

Teams come from all over the country to play hockey in Aston, PA, in fact the San Jose Jr. Sharks 18uAA team traveled all the way from the west coast just to compete in this year’s President’s Day Tournament. This their first IceWorks tournament and for many of the players, their first hockey experience in Pennsylvania. I had the privilege of following this team throughout the tournament to hear about their exciting experiences and get taste of their west coast hockey style. For many of them it was their first time ever seeing real snow! Five players from the team have been featured below to tell about their experiences of the weekend and their unique background.
