Here in Aston Township we believe that to truly benefit the community we need to offer programs for residents of all ages. That being said, Senior Community Services has released the Spring 2013 course offerings from the Center for Life Learning. These programs are designed and offered for individuals ages 50 and over. The areas of study offered for the spring include: Art & Design, Driver Education, Literature, Fitness, Health and Wellness, and Senior Topics. In Aston Township the classes are held at the Community Center. If you are interested in finding out more information about the classes click on the link below for a registration form, or visit Senior Community Services at the website www.scs-delco.org.
The 2011 Tree Lighting was a huge success thanks to the extra efforts of the Citizen’s Advisory Committee and the donation of time and resources from local businesses and residents! This year’s event was expanded to include Free family friendly game and activities, snacks, and a visit from Santa. The Library also added to the fun by inviting Mr. Malcom to read The Polar Express.
Perhaps most significantly, the event was moved to a Friday evening, which organizers suspect encouraged a much greater turnout than in years past. Thanks to all who donated their time and resources to make this event so successful. We look forward the new Tree Lighting and Winter Fun Festival format to be used again in 2012!
