McClinton welcomes over 300 constituents to Delaware County Community Day

YEADON, May 7 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton welcomed more than 300 constituents for a family-friendly day of fun and entertainment during her Delaware County Community Day.

“Thankfully, the weather held out, and it turned out to be a great day to celebrate our community and empower neighbors with resources,” McClinton said. “Whether in my office or on Church Lane, I always love to talk with my constituents and hear about the issues that are impacting their lives. It’s great to host events such as Delaware County Community Day, which provide a relaxed environment where we can all connect.” 

The event featured 35 vendors that provided community resources, giveaways, and tips on healthy living; entertainment by Evelyn Graves Ministries, Royal Excellence Step Team, Feet of Faith Dance Company, Soul on Demand Band, and local youth rappers, singers and poets; children’s activities including bouncy houses, face painting and dancing; and free food.

McClinton said she wanted to thank AETNA as the prime sponsor of the event, and to JEVS at Home, Mercy Health System, Lowes, Fresh Grocer and Philadelphia Water Ice Company for partnering with her to make this event possible.

“I am thrilled that we were able to provide this event for the over 300 neighbors who attended. I cannot thank the vendors, sponsors and staff enough. They went above and beyond to make this event truly all about the community,” McClinton said.
