Sister Anne McCafferty, SND, spent 11 years as a chaplain at the Fair Aces Geriatric Center in Middletown, and was so moved by her experiences with the elderly and infirm that she decided to share them in a book titled “Blessings: Reflections of a Chaplain to the Elderly.”
Now retired, Sr. Anne uses her book to honor the lives of the Fair Acres residents and staff to whom she ministered and worked in an atmosphere that she describes as “compassionate and loving.” Read more

More than 100 volunteers gathered on May 2 for the first annual Aston Township Clean-Up Day. Supplied with trash bags and gloves, the volunteers headed to 10 sites throughout the township to pick-up debris and brush.
The brain-child of Aston 2nd Ward Commissioner Carol Graham, the event was a long time coming. For many years, Graham joined with the Chester Ridley Creek Watershed (CRC) and a few volunteers to clean the west branch of the Chester Creek. As the number of volunteers increased, so did the sites, which included Poore and Fisher Parks.
Aston Commissioners, during the April 15 meeting, presented a proclamation to township residents Darren J. Sereikis and Stephen F. Taylor for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.
Darren is the son of Michael and Cindy Sereikis and is a senior at Sun Valley High School. He is a member of Scout troop #292 and passed his Eagle Scout Court of Honor on January 28. Read more
