THANKS! Movie Night in Paddock Park had a great turnout and was a success, thanks in large part to the Haverford Township Civic Council who loaned us and set up a massive 20 foot screen. We’d also like to thank Nolan Painting for sending a representative to hand out free popcorn to attendees. Lastly, much thanks to the handful of volunteers who helped by giving their time to prepare, set up, sell concessions and clean up.

Neighborhood Alert: Suspicious activity was reported in the Paddock Farms Neighborhood on Monday 9/12. The Havertown Community Page on Facebook reported two attempted break-ins in the Lynnewood Section (area between Lawrence Road and Manoa Shopping Center). The resulting conversation brought attention to a suspicious man riding a bike throughout the Paddock Farms Neighborhood at both 11:15am and 4:30pm. The individual was reportedly riding slowly and looking up driveways and now appears to be a person of interest by Haverford Township Police Department in connection with an attempted break-in at Grasslyn and Colfax. All of this highlights the need to report suspicious activity. If you see something, say something. Please call 911 to report and The HTPD will be notified. Always be sure to lock your house and car and close your garage door.
