Join your neighbors on Thursday, May 24 as our community comes together to make “Angels in Motion” blessing bags. The bags will be given to an organization to distribute to the homeless and addicted.
What you can do:
Come to Bon Air Fire Company on Thursday, May 24 at 7 p.m.
What to bring:
Yourself! And if you could help us out by bringing ANY of the following supplies as a donation, even better:
- Gallon-size plastic bags (Ziploc style)
- Pop tarts
- Drink boxes, capri suns, yoo hoo, kool aid, etc.
- Single-serve apple sauces
- Single-serve pudding
- Single-serve fruit cups
- Candy (no chocolate!)
- Cereal bars (i.e. Nutri Grain bars)
- Granola bars
- Single servings of peanut butter or Nutella
- Rice krispie treats
- Most importantly: a note of encouragement
- Also needed: 18” plastic bags with handles. Can be purchased at A.C. Moore, HomeGoods for $1.
Angels in Motion started with one woman’s efforts to rescue her child from the disease of addiction. While searching the streets of Kensington (a neighborhood in Philadelphia), for her son, Carol Rostucher saw that many other children and loved ones were suffering and lost as well. Carol began to open her heart to the streets and spread her love where it was needed the most. Her efforts included treating each person as an individual and offering her genuine compassion and understanding, and providing “blessing bags” which contain food, snacks, clothing, hygiene products and resource information to obtain help when they are ready.

We love Steel Field and Hilltop Park – and we can make it better! Our civic association – working with neighbors, the township, and Hilltop Little League – will be working to add new benches and landscaping to the park. But first, we have to raise the money! Let’s buy some shirts!
Mens, womens and youth sizes are available. Choose the Next Level Tri-Blend T-shirt for men’s and youth sizes. Click on the other shirt – the Bella Ladies Tri-Blend T-shirt – for the women’s cut.

Terry will be sharing insights and stories about a number of local historic properties, including the Original Manoa School. The school, located at 510 South Eagle Road, is now being remodeled as a home.
Terry will also share stories about other historical properties right in our neighborhood!
This will be a fun gathering and a good chance to connect with your neighbors – we hope to see you there!
With our apologies, we must cancel this weekend’s trunk or treat event.

And what a lineup: Matt Santry with Meghan Cary!
From full-time social worker to full-time musician, Matt Santry has made the unlikely transition from playing music for Autistic children to rocking audiences of loyal fans. Santry credits the years he spent working one-on-one with children with disabilities as a contributing factor to his ability to successfully create a connection with his current audiences.
Since 2006, Santry has performed over 500 live shows in venues from Los Angeles to New York and has been quickly grabbing nationwide attention. His latest release, “Fall” is available on iTunes and Spotify.
Matt has also launched an online live concert series “Musicians House Calls Online” to bring the experience of his concerts to those who may be too get out to a show. Matt was recently featured on CBS3 in Philadelphia.
Meghan Cary didn’t mean to be a musician. When her fiancé unexpectedly died, she picked up his guitar, figured out how to play it, and wrote her debut, earning her Billboard Magazine’s Critic’s Choice for Best Newcomer. “I wrote my grief into song and sang my way out of the abyss. I keep making music to help others connect with their own stories and find their joy.”
Known for her unabashed willingness to connect with her audience, Cary brings listeners to their feet and at times to tears with high-energy tunes, masterful storytelling, and deeply personal lyrics that resonate universally. After pushing pause on performing to raise two children, Cary launched back onto the scene at Philly Folk Fest and was awarded a coveted Emerging Artist Showcase slot at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Cary’s smoky voice, emotional singing, and vulnerable writing garner favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge, Shawn Colvin, and even Bruce Springsteen.
