Mayfair is a vibrant Northeast Philadelphia neighborhood, home to a variety of stores, pubs and restaurants and the proud host of community events all year long. The Civic Association consists of volunteer citizens focused on the betterment of their Community.
Our General meetings are held the 3rd Monday of March, May, September and November and the 4th Monday of January at 7PM at the Mayfair Community Center, St. Vincent St. and Battersby St.
A NEW playground, the Methadone Clinic, the May-Fair, Pennypack Concerts, the Parade, Membership Drive, Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony - where to begin? I'll touch on a few and let others chime in on the rest.
Our Mayfair May-Fair was a huge success this year and it continues to get better and better each year! Thanks again to all who participated and helped to make this years Fair a fabulous family fun filled day! We're already planning next years Fair, so if you've got any suggestions or would like to help out, please feel free to send em on over or sign up!
The Pennypack Concerts have been absolutely amazing! Well over 1000+ people attend these shows every week and they're consistently trouble free and run flawlessly (as long as Mother Nature lets it - haha). The Mayfair Civic and Business Associations attend these shows every week under our red tent and we observe families come to these shows, enjoy themselves, and donate their hard earned money to keep these shows going. Once the concert is over, they collect themselves including their trash, and leave peacefully. It sounds so simple, but it really speaks volumes for the people of Mayfair. Thank you!
As I'm sure most of you know, Pennypack was flooded out during hurricane Irene, and the trailer and it's contents were a total loss. Sound equipment, lights, tables, etc. it's all gone. Donations are seriously needed to replace these things. Please go to Pennypack.org to make your donation. You can even use payal! The entire board at Pennypack Thanks You for your support!
The Mayfair tee shirts are selling like HOT CAKES! You can pick yours up at any of the Pennypack Concerts, or they're available at BellaLisa Hair Studio right on Cottman avenue (3530).
They make great Christmas presents!
Speaking of ...
So become a member, encourage your neighbor to do so, get involved, and help us keep Mayfair a GREAT place to live, work, and play!
Meetings for the Holmesburg/Mayfair Thanksgiving Parade are already underway! This years theme is "Bringing Music to Mayfair" and we've selected Ed Kelly as this years Grand Marshall as not only has he been so active in and around Mayfair, but he's also the guy who (with his own finances), built the stage in Pennypack that we all enjoy during the concerts. Several local bands have already signed up to play in this years parade. We're also adding something new to the parade to include even MORE Holmesburg/Mayfair residents! This year, we're allowing anyone who wants to, to build their own float and run it up the ave on parade day! Floats must be family oriented and within size requirements. If you're interested in getting involved in this years parade, or building a float and entering it in the parade, shoot us an email and we'll set you up.
The Mayfair Civic Association membership is growing, however we'd like EVERYONE in Mayfair to get involved! For those of you who have not yet signed up, please go to our website and download and mail in the application, or they're also available at BellaLisa. Dues can be paid there as well.
