            The Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”) is excited to announce the formation of the Mayfair Clean UP Committee headed by Mayfair residents:  James Ortlieb and Anna Stacey. MCA President Joe DeFelice is very excited about the potential of this group to help maintain a cleaner Mayfair for all residents to enjoy!  The goal of this committee is to organize volunteer clean-up efforts in the Mayfair area with the help of local organizations like CLIP (the Community Life Improvement Program). DeFelice credited Jim Berghaier and the Mayfair CDC for maintaining the Avenue for years but realizes it is also time for residents and business owners to step and take charge of the look of their community. 
The MCA met on May 12, 2012, at which DeFelice named Ortlieb Chair of the newly established committee.  DeFelice stated, “Jim Ortlieb is known in the community as someone who takes pride in his neighborhood and we welcome him as a superb addition to the growing list of Committee Chairs of the Mayfair Civic Association.”  Ortlieb thanked the MCA and added “It is up to the residents of Mayfair to keep the area clean and litter free…I believe this will enhance the quality of life for our residents and increase civic pride in Mayfair.”
The first major clean-up initiative is slated for Saturday, June 30, 2012 at 9:00 am.  This effort will span Frankford Avenue, on both sides, from Welsh Road to Harbison Avenue, a Forty (40) block area, as well as the 3400/3500/4000 blocks of Cottman Avenue and the rear lots behind the odd side of 3400 Cottman Ave. “It is our goal to completely clean the whole corridor and with sufficient volunteers, we will achieve that goal” says Ortlieb who also thanked the Mayfair Business Association for their support, CLIP for providing supplies and Mayfair Shop N Bag for supplying refreshments.  This formation of the Mayfair Clean Up Committee helps to accentuate the many positive things that continue to happen in Mayfair and is just another reason that Mayfair is a great place to live, work and play.***********************
