Do you remember when swimming in Chester Creek in Aston looked like this?
The public is invited to
Aston Township Historical Society's quarterly meeting and talk
MONDAY, Febuary 11, 2013, 7PM
at the ASTON TOWNSHIP COMMUNITY CENTER ON South Concord Road.
March is Women's History Month and we are honoring 2 local women who have made history in helping women with breast cancer. Kristin Dudley, a graduate of Sun Valley High School and Drexel University, has created fashion friendly compression sleeves to relieve lymph-edema. Lymph-endema is a serious side affect of breast cancer surgery. This has led Kristin to start a business called LympaDIVA. Also speaking is local businesswoman (co-owner of IceWorks), Olympic Figure Skating Coach and motivational speaker, Uschi Keszler. Uschi's own bouts with cancer led her to found Pennies In Action. It is a charitable organization that raises money to fund the cancer vaccine trials that is a cure. The vaccine is in the 2nd trial and is hugely successful.
Please join us in as these women take us on their fascinating, exciting and timely journey.
Also September, 2013 marks the 20TH anniversary of the formation of Aston Township Historical Society. Special displays and speaking engagements will occur throughout this special year.
