Good Morning Paddock Farms Neighbors,
Much thanks to all who helped make last Saturday’s Egg Hunt in the Park a great success. We had a solid crew of volunteers to help prep the area, place eggs and clean up. It made a world of difference to have many helping hands this year. A special thanks goes to the residents of The Quadrangle, who again filled over 1500 eggs. Our community sponsors this year included Rita’s Water Ice of Havertown, Testa’s Bakery, Koffmeyers Cookies and Ice Cream and ACME Markets. Please show your support for these local businesses that support the PFCA. We’d also like to thank our musical duo “Under the Oak” (Maggie and Adam), who added a fantastic soundtrack to the event. You can catch them next at the New Leaf Club in Rosemont on April 23rd at 8pm.

Hello Paddock Farms Neighbors,
Happy Easter Weekend—join us Saturday morning in Paddock Park for the Annual Egg Hunt! We are featuring live children’s music from local duo Maggie and Adam. They’ll begin playing around 10:40am, so arrive a little earlier than normal to enjoy their full performance. Please be sure your child brings their own basket. The Egg Hunt will start shortly after 11am. We’ll stagger the start times of the age groups by a few minutes with 0-3 up first, followed by 4-6, then 7 and up. It’s over in a flash, so please arrive early. Much thanks to Testa’s Bakery and Koffmeyers, who so kindly donated cookies to munch on at the pavilion. The temperature should be a little over 50 and sunny at 11am. We hope to see everyone Saturday in the Park!

Hello Paddock Farms Neighbors,
We can’t decide if Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction was accurate--we’ve had subzero temps and summer-like sunny days in February. What we do know is the PFCA returns with another year full of fun events and activities, including the concert in Paddock Park on June 18th. This email features important event announcements and something we need you to take action on: a 2 minute anonymous survey. Thanks in advance for your feedback!
The new PFCA event calendar kicks off with the great EGG HUNT in Paddock Park on Saturday, March 26th at 11am. Music and free cookies accompany the frantic search for the rare golden eggs amongst the candy-filled ones. Bring your own basket and arrive early--the hunt is over in a flash! Helping hands are needed to drop the hundreds of eggs. We’ll meet at the pavilion at 10:30am. To volunteer, please provide your name on our simple online webpage: http://goo.gl/forms/YDl5hSGtkK We will also need a volunteer to wear the bunny costume for the last 15-20 of the event.
SURVEY SAYS...! The PFCA has some important questions to ask you and we need your answers! Cast your vote and state your opinions and ideas. The results of this brief, 4 question survey will guide critical decisions for the future of the PFCA as considerations are being discussed for holding the 4th of July celebration a week early, Paddock Park improvement ideas are requested, and support for future events and activities is needed. CLICK THE LINK TO TAKE THE 2 MINUTE SURVEY: http://goo.gl/forms/0MXxExi2np Responses are due by March 13th.
DUES DRIVE KICKOFF: The PFCA is supported by annual dues and volunteers. The 2016 PFCA Dues Drive officially kicks off today!
