Fall Fest a Success!

Tuesday, October 21, 2014   On October 19th the Ladies Auxiliary had the first Fall Fest fundraiser to benefit the fire company. Initiated by Lady Janie Boyle, venders of all kinds rented spaces, inside and outside, to sell their goods on a very chilly and windy Sunday morning. Everything from food trucks to jewelry to fall decorations were for sale,

Lady Krisi Lavaique donated her talent to do face painting for the kids (and some adults) while Lady Lisa Parks and  Firefighter Jeremy Leaver provided music for the day.

A moonbounce was on location to also entertain the kids. The Ladies Auxiliary would like to thank all those who helped make yet another fundraiser a success!!

     Guests of the tournament included Lori Markusfield from Crozer Hospital, Councilman David White, Commissioner Sheri Zuppo, and Jack Whelen. Katherine Scott from Channel 6 ABC news also stopped by to say a few words. Dan Breeze and Chase Frost were honorary Captains. As Chase was unable to attend this year, Dan threw out the first pitch.

The Ridley U8 Little League team was also honored for their Mid-Atlantic Championship where they went 15-0 in three tournaments. They were handed their plaques by Katherine Scott.
