Aston Hosts Delaware County Council: Resolutions Presented to the Aston Lions, Lioness, Leo’s and the Aston Rebels Ice Hockey Team.
Aston Commissioners and residents welcomed members of Delaware County Council to the township on Wednesday, September 30. Delaware County Council held its meeting in the commissioners meeting room where they were greeted by a packed, enthusiastic audience.
Delaware County Council Chairman Mario Civera, Jr. expressed appreciation to the Aston Board of Commissioners for inviting them to meet in in the township.
“We are delighted to be here in Aston this evening,” Civera said. “And we are grateful for the warm welcome.”
Following official business, council recognized the Aston Township Lions, Lionesses and Leo organizations, as well as the new Aston Rebels Ice Hockey Team.
Council member John McBlain read a resolution recognizing the Lions Club. McBlain congratulated the organization for championing youth initiatives and strengthening the local community.
“Since 1948 the Lions, along with the Lioness and Leos have raised nearly $750,000, which has benefited organizations such as little league baseball, termite football, scouts, bands, and local libraries,” McBlain said. “They have also provided funding for the blind and deaf, drug awareness programs, memorial funds, and so much more… Thanks to the dedication of all of you, our community is a better place. Not only are you helping the community, you are setting the foundation for good citizenship for our youth. Organizations like yours are the heart and soul of our county and enhance the lives of so many residents.”
Several members of the Aston Lions, Lioness and Leos were on hand for the presentation. The official resolution was gratefully accepted by Mike Petrillo, president of the Aston Lions, and Harriet Reynolds, President of the Aston Lioness Club.
Council member Mike Culp presented a resolution to the coaches and members of the Aston Rebels Ice Hockey Team. A Tier II Junior hockey team, the Rebels play in the Eastern division of the North American Hockey League, which consists of 24 teams in 14 states across North America. They will be playing their home games at the Ice Works Skating Complex.
“This is the Aston Rebels first year playing in Aston, “Culp said. “The team recently relocated from Rio Grande, Texas where they were known as the Rio Grande Killer Bees. A majority of the players are from various states and a few of the players are from Canada and Europe… We’d like to officially welcome the team to Delaware County and present a resolution to you in recognition of your accomplishments and display of sportsmanship.”
Aston Rebels head coach Joe Coombs and Assistant coach Josh Brown were on-hand to accept the resolution on behalf of the team.
