Play Ground Equiptment Update from The Paddock Park Improvement Group

E-mail sent by Webmaster Webmaster - Master Account, Sunday, May 20th, 2018 @ 8:05pm

**A Message from The Paddock Park Improvement Group **

The Paddock Park Improvement Group is proud to announce that new playground equipment is on order for our beloved park. While our group does has a general focus to enhance the play area, the replacement of the toddler playset became a top priority after its sudden removal in November 2017 due to a rotting foundation. Working closely with Haverford Township officials and the park crew, as well as with the support of Commissioners Siegel and McCloskey, our group advocated for the playset’s replacement using available funding. A thorough (but longer than expected) evaluation period resulted in the choice of Playworld Systems’ 3-slide/climber/tunnel set designed for 2-5 year olds. Our group led the evaluation, timed the purchase to take advantage of a sale and negotiated $0 freight costs that allowed us to include a see-saw, balance beam/walking stumps and a “cozy cocoon” with the purchase. The new equipment will elevate our park to another level, while blending with the color scheme of our existing play structures.

The equipment is on order with a timeline for delivery in the next 5-7 weeks, however the install will occur in September. The install estimate is set for September primarily because the Township-certified installer leads the parks crew, which stays continually busy throughout the grass-mowing season. Outsourcing the installation is cost-prohibitive, with an estimate of over $12K to install. Furthermore, a community build is not an option as: 1) a certified installer would be required (and not available) 2) the materials are metal and plastic (as opposed to a wood structure) and 3) there is a liability-factor that we wish to avoid. Additionally, with camps set to begin in June, a construction zone in the park would be a hazard. Overall, this is great news that Paddock Park will have awesome new equipment while the fantastic late-summer/early fall weather is in place! Much thanks to the Improvement Group members, Township officials, Commissioners and vendors for their collaboration, insights and patience throughout this process. We look forward to this and many other enhancements in the future as we build a better Paddock Park! Follow us on Facebook (join our group) and please contact us to get involved. We will continue to provide updates on this and upcoming group initiatives.

As a side note, the Township will address the merry-go-round destroyed by a fallen tree in a separate budgetary request.

The Weekend! Reminder: Tuesday's New Leadership Org Meeting

E-mail sent by Webmaster Webmaster - Master Account, Friday, February 24th, 2017 @ 8:57am

Happy Friday Paddock Farms Neighbors,

The weekend and warm weather is upon us!

Please remember that our PFCA New Leadership Organizational Meeting is 8pm on Tuesday the 28th at the Nolan Painting office on W. Hillcrest. The PFCA is an invaluable asset to our neighborhood and its continued existence is helpful for us all. Tuesday’s meeting will gather individuals interested in supporting the PFCA in any way possible. Ideally 4-5 individuals (or couples) will take on the leadership roles. The time commitment for anyone involved is minimal. The outgoing board will continually help with the transition. Beyond leadership roles, there are other important functions that may interest you, including, but not limited to:

>>Communications – Website, Newsletters (4-5/year), Social Media, Correspondence

>>Finance – oversee bank account, issue checks/payments as needed

>>Event Coordinators – take the lead on one specific event; Main Events/Activities: Egg Hunt, Yard Sale, 4th of July, Movie Night, Oktoberfest

It’s vital that we have a solid turnout to ensure the sustained success of the PFCA.

Thank you all for your support!

Best,

PFCA Board

NEW LEADERSHIP MEETING

Interested leaders, volunteers, helping hands, etc. please attend!

Tuesday, February 28th @ 8pm
Nolan Painting Office, 181 W. Hillcrest Ave

---------------------------------------------------------------

New leadership is being sought for our 25+ year old civic association that maintains a well-connected neighborhood, brings joy to young and old, serves our community, enhances our park and elevates our home values. The current leadership has been in place for 3 years and it is time to pass the torch. We’ll need 4-5 individuals (or couples) to take over. Documentation, repeatable processes and funding are all in place. Time commitment is minimal, as the board typically meets 4 times per year. Transitional help will certainly be provided throughout. The main events are the Egg Hunt, 4th of July and Oktoberfest. Small-scale events and activites are also on the schedule. Whether you can join the board, want to help with a specific event or want to learn how you can be involved, please come out on Tuesday, February 28th at 8pm. It’s important that this meeting is well-attended. Without new leadership, 2017 PFCA events and activities will not happen. FYI: Paddock Park has a separate Improvement Committee that works under the PFCA. This meeting is not to discuss issues.

YOUR SUPPORT IS CRITICAL!

Food Bank Donations are VERY LIGHT! Please donate this weekend!

E-mail sent by Webmaster Webmaster - Master Account, Friday, November 18th, 2016 @ 11:07am

Hello Paddock Farms Neighbors,

As we head into the final days of our food bank donation drive we want to report that collections are very light. We have just 3 bags of donations collected compared to the 80 bags we collected last year. Please donate to our cause this year if you can! We understand there are many charities and organizations asking for donations (especially this time of year), however it’s surprising to see this much of a decline for our own efforts. Our donations go to the Hope Food Bank located at the Hope United Methodist Church on Steel Road in Havertown. They open their doors just once a month to hungry families and individuals right here in town. All are welcome. Many factors lead folks to reach out to food banks for assistance—continuing financial challenges, unexpected job loss or illness can contribute to their need. Betty Druce (610-637-3857 or druceb@comcast.net) offers up her home as the collection point for our food drive.  

DROP OFF ALL THIS WEEKEND! 
Friday, Saturday, Sunday
128 Charles Drive, Havertown
*you can knock or leave your donation by the garage door

What is needed?

Items urgently needed: paper towels, bathroom tissue, toothbrushes w/ caps, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, laundry and dishwashing detergent, coffee, juices, jelly, condiments, canned chicken, potatoes, fruit, chili, canned pasta meals, canned soups.

Low supply items: pancake syrup, baked beans, canned soups (no tomato), cereal (no oatmeal), pasta sauces, pasta (not spaghetti), rice, mac and cheese. Cash donations are also accepted. No glass when possible.

Thank you for your support!!!

All the best,
PFCA

Oktoberfest is Sunday at 3pm! Reminders, schedule of activities, do you love donuts?

E-mail sent by Webmaster Webmaster - Master Account, Friday, October 28th, 2016 @ 11:17am

Hello Paddock Farms Neighbors,

Oktoberfest in Paddock Park is this Sunday, October 30th from 3-4:30pm! Join us for our last neighborhood gathering of 2016. We have a fun, festive afternoon planned featuring a costume parade led by our friends at Oakmont Fire Company. In the park, DJ Joe provides the soundtrack as we give away free cider and treats, invite you to our pumpkin decorating station, host a candy scramble and mix-a-six beer exchange and new this year...a donut eating contest!!! This won’t be about quantity, it’ll be about skill, as the donut will hang from a string and you can’t use your hands. Thanks to our local Krispy Kreme for donating a few dozen donuts to pull this off.

We still have a few volunteer openings. Please give 30 minutes of your time to make sure our event is a success! Sign up for an open slot here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a48a5ab23a4f85-oktoberfest1 Thanks to those that stepped up to help!

A few things to remember to bring to the park on Sunday:
Bag for candy
Small pumpkin to decorate
Six pack of beer for mix-a-six exchange

Schedule of activities:

2:30 - Set up in the park
2:45 - Gather in Merrybrook Circle (Colfax and Merrybrook) for costume parade
3:00 - Parade starts; led by Oakmont Fire Co
3:00 - Shack open, free snacks and drinks
3:20 - Donut eating contest (groups: 6 and under, 7 & up, adults)
3:35 - Candy Scramble (done in waves, 0-3, 4-6, 7 & up)
4:00 - Mix-a-Six beer exchange

We’re proud to continue this tradition and look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!
