Delco Alert - 6/16/22

Hi Everyone,

My Recreation Committee, with the support of local historians, has organized a tour of the Underground Railroad Walking Trail here in Upper Darby in honor of Juneteenth. On Saturday, June 18th from 9am-11am you can join your neighbors for a walk to three Underground Railroad sites and hear from local experts at each site on its importance to the anti-slavery movement in Upper Darby.  This event is free and children are welcome! You can learn more about the event by visiting our website, 

Upper Darby Township will be hosting a free fireworks display for Independence Day on Friday, July 1st. The event will take place at the Upper Darby High School baseball field at 9:30 pm. Please come out and enjoy the fireworks!

Community Action Agency of Delaware County has very recently announced a new program called “Beat The Heat” which is part of their Weatherization Works program.  If you are a Delaware County resident, homeowner or renter, and qualify for LIHEAP assistance, you are eligible for a free air conditioning unit.  Please contact Community Action at 610.521.8770 for more information or go to the Community Action website,  

Work has begun on the renovations to the 2nd Ward Playground.  Renovations include a walking path, new playground equipment, a pavilion, new lighting and cameras.  The basketball courts are still open and the site work is expected to be completed in the next six weeks.

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer wishing you a great weekend and a happy Father’s Day!
