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.

Street Cleaning Underway – 2nd Ward – Starting Wed.

Please keep the curb sides clear of vehicles. After the long and fierce winter of 2014-15 our Public Works Department is hard at work cleaning the remains of our roadway treatments.

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.
