DELCO ALERT - April 19, 2022

Delco Alert April 19, 2022

Hi, this is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with some important updates for our Upper Darby community:

I am hosting a Pet Expo this Saturday, April 23rd from 10am-12pm at Kent Dog Park. Upper Darby Township provided funding for up to 100 free rabies vaccinations which are available by pre-registering. Please call 610-734-7625 to register your pet. The Bywood Animal Hospital will be administering shots and there will be other vendors as well. The forecast looks good and we hope to see you there. 

There are multiple events this weekend in celebration of Earth Day and Arbor Day. On Saturday, Habitat for Humanity is leading two events in our township as part of their “Rock The Block” program: building a community garden at the Prayer Chapel Church on Hampden and Locust and planting residential trees throughout the township with the UD Tree Tenders. The program runs from 9 am to 1 pm.

Also on Saturday, at 1:30pm, there will be a dedication of the Native Tree Nursery at Naylors Run Park.  This project is a collaboration of the Shade Tree Commission, the Tree Tenders and the township Parks Division.  The nursery is dedicated to Clyde and Gisela Hunt, longtime residents and active volunteers who have planted hundreds of trees here in Upper Darby.  

On Sunday, members of the Shade Tree Commission, the Tree Tenders and the township are getting together again to plant trees along the newly constructed Darby Creek Trail. Planting will begin at 1:30 and participants will meet at Bloomfield and Rosemont Avenues. We could use some extra hands.  The link to sign up is on the township website homepage.

There will be an Identity Theft Protection event held at Beverly Hills Middle School on Wednesday, April 27th from 5-7:30pm. Each resident is allowed two boxes or bags of papers to be shredded on site. Acceptable material includes legal documents, bank & credit card statements, check books, as well as tax and medical records. There will also be a Drug Take Back Van from the Delaware County DA’s Office on site. 

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer wishing you a good afternoon.
