The Aston Township Historical Society will host Nancy Webster, Delaware County historian and professor, on Thursday September12th at 7 PM at the Aston Township Building on Pennell Road. She will kick off the year’s celebration of Aston’s 325th anniversary as a township with a talk on the early settlement of “Ashton” and what daily life was like here for the first generation of settlers. Did they pay taxes? Were there Native Americans here? What activities occupied those first families? Nancy herself is a descendant of the Dutton family, whose early home is in Aston and whose name is on a prominent local road . Ms. Webster has taught at Neumann and Drexel Universities and currently teaches at Swarthmore College. Come hear the former regional planner describe the life of the very first Astonians! Free and open to the public.
The PA Department of Environmental Protection’s West Nile Virus control program will conduct an Ultra Low Volume (ULV) mosquito adulticide spray in portions of Aston Township, Brookhaven Borough, Chester Heights Borough, Chester Township and Upland Borough in Delaware County. Residential and recreational areas within this treatment area will be sprayed to control adult mosquitoes. This is a result of high trap counts and the identification of positive mosquito pools in the area.
Operations will take place in the evening hours of Thursday, September 19, 2013 provided that weather and environmental conditions remain suitable for the operation. If weather conditions or other unexpected events cancel or delay this spray operation, then a rain date is scheduled for the following night. The PA Department of Environmental Protection will perform the work using truck mounted spraying equipment with the business license BU2626 visible on the equipment. The product used will be Duet applied at a rate of 1.23 ounces per acre. This product is designed to provide quick knockdown and effective control of adult mosquitoes. Treatment will commence at approximately 20:00 and conclude by 23:00 hours.
The below links have more information about the spraying:
