Aston Township Welcomes the Holidays With Tree Lighting and Indoor Winter Festival

tree-lighting-20More than 500 Aston residents attended the township’s annual tree lighting and winter festival, which took place December 2 at the community center.

Prior to the lighting of the township Christmas tree, songs of the season were performed followed by Santa Claus’ arrival, riding high above an Aston Township fire truck.

The winter festival, which was held inside the community center gymnasium, was organized by the township recreation committee and featured a magician, arts and crafts, ornament making, pictures with Santa Claus, and visits by several Disney Princesses including Belle, Cinderella and Snow White.

Upon entering, children received a goody bag filled with a brightly decorated cookie, and other items.

Refreshments included pretzels in the shape of a candy cane, hot chocolate, cookies, lemonade, and water.

The winter festival committee was chaired by Kit Spayd and included Alma Carroll, Florence Fisher, 2nd Ward Commissioner Carol Graham, and a countless number of volunteers.

A Letter From Aston Township Fire Marshal Tom Morgan

linda-laneAston Township has new signs on major roads as you enter our town that say “A Community that Cares”. Late Tuesday evening, November 15, 2016, and in the days that followed, we personified that little public relations snippet more than you can imagine.  Let me tell you about it.

Pennsylvania State Rep. Leanne Krueger-Braneky, D-161, last week, presented Aston Township commissioners with a check in the amount of $882,525, on behalf of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  The grant funds will be used for watershed restoration at Newsome Park, and roundabouts at Donnelly Avenue and McIntrye Drive.  The Newsome Park project will include improvements to a walking path and picnic areas, implementation of storm water management controls, planting native vegetation, and re-establishing two existing ponds to alleviate area flooding.  The funds will also address traffic concerns by adding roundabouts on Donnelly Avenue at the site of the Community Center and at McIntrye Drive located near Neumann University.  Krueger-Braneky praised commissioners and township officials for the presentation they provided on the projects.  “It was very easy to advocate for these proposals because the township did such good work with the presentations,” Krueger-Braneky said. “I look forward to working with the Board of Commissioners, new Township Manager and residents of Aston.”
