An Eventful May across the 191stLegislative District
You know what they say, “April showers bring May flowers.” In our case – a month’s worth of April planning has blossomed into several May and early June events that will better connect neighbors with a host of state and local resources.
To start, my office is continuing its weekly mobile constituent office hours EVERY Thursday at the Yeadon Public Library, 809 Longacre Blvd., from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.Neighbors can also visit the Darby Borough Recreation Center, 1022 Ridge Ave., every first Tuesday of the month from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.for our Darby Borough office hours. Additional mobile constituent office hours will take place this summer across the district.
Please join us Friday, May 5 in front of my district office, 52 S. 60th St., to participate in our annual Curbside Resource Fair, where we will be handing out produce to families in need of fresh, locally grown food. This is a biweekly event that will change locations. We could bring a resource fair to your block, too! But our office needs your help. If interested, blcok captain can contact m office at 215-748-6712 for mor information.
Note: Produce will only be distributed at the May 5 event.
On May 20, neighbors can join us for Southwest Community Day at the Francis J. Myers Recreation Center, 5801 Kingsessing Ave, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thanks to a partnership with the Francis J. Myers Advisory Council and Councilmember Kenyatta Johnson, residents will be able to enjoy sports-related activities, great food and refreshments, and access to state and local resources.
Lastly, our Family Fun Day: Health and Wellness Fair is scheduled for June 3! Cohosted by the Black Brain Campaign, this community fair will take place at the Yeadon Community Park, 401-523 S. Union Ave, in Yeadon. Those in attendance can enjoy food and dessert trucks, hopscotch, tug-a-war, double-dutch and more! Mental health, diabetes, breast cancer, heart disease, dental, and prostate cancer information and related material also will be available. Additional information regarding this event is available at www.theblackbraincampaign.org.
This is only the beginning, neighbors! My office plans to host and promote more events catered to the needs of our residents throughout the summer. As always, feel free to contact my office at 215-748-6712 for help with any and all state-related issues. That includes Property Tax/Rent Rebate issues, PACE and PACENET, grant opportunities and more!
