American Flag Project

Hey Mayfair!

If you donated to our American Flag project, when you get a minute today, take a walk or ride on over to Rowland avenue - anywhere between Rhawn and Frankford - and take a moment to feel that neighborhood pride that YOU contributed to!

Last night after several hours of work, volunteers of the community finished installing the remaining flags along Rowland avenue.

Feel free to take pride not only in your neighborhood and your country, but also in knowing that this project was NOT at all funded with your tax dollars, and was instead completely funded by YOU through passing the hat, and taking donations - Much like many of other projects that take place in Mayfair!

In order to extend the life of the flags, they will remain in place until shortly after Veterans Day, and will then be taken down and stored until next Spring. If you missed the opportunity to donate to this project, we are still taking donations through the Mayfair Civic Association as we will be needing funds to replace them as necessary.

On behalf of the Mayfair Civic Association, I would like to thank the entire Mayfair Civic Association board for making this dream a reality, I'd like to thank Ken Stevens and Home Depot of Bustleton avenue / Leo Mall for helping us secure our flags, and most importantly, I'd like to thank each and every one in our community who donated to this project.

Thank you!

Donny Smith

May Fair Cancelled and Run Still On

Unfortunately due to tomorrow's weather forecast, we have CANCELED the 2016 Mayfair May-Fair
We waited until the very last minute to make this decision hoping for a shift in the weather, however unfortunately it doesn't look like Mother Nature isn't going to give up.
The GOOD NEWS is that we will be combining several of the vendors and entertainment from our Mayfair May-Fair to our very first Mayfair Night Market, scheduled for Thursday June 2nd starting at 5pm right at Cottman and Frankford!
Please put the date and time on your calendars now, and stay tuned for more details as they become available!
