A Thanksgiving Message from the MCA

Hey Mayfair,

As we approach Thanksgiving, I paused for a minute last night to think of all of the things that I have to be thankful for. Aside from my family, my friends, my health, my country, and my faith, I am also thankful to live in a community that comes together time and time again to put in the hard work needed to raise funds, to celebrate, and most importantly, to have fun!

I'm very happy to report that working together with the Holmesburg Civic Association, we were able to raise over 2 thousand dollars at the Beef n Beer last Friday night! The money raised will be used to continue to fight the ongoing battle to stop the opening of the Methadone Clinic. I'm thankful for everyone who attended, to everyone who helped put the event together, and to those of you who donated prizes to for the raffle. It was a GREAT night - Thank You!

I'm thankful that despite some chilly weather, we were able to come together as a community and march down the avenue for the 37th time last Sunday! I'm thankful for everyone who participated in the parade, for the volunteers who worked countless hours to put the parade together, to everyone who attended the parade, and most importantly, to the sponsors of the parade who without their support and belief in our neighborhood, the parade would not exist - Thank You!

I'm thankful to everyone who is a Member of the Mayfair Civic Association, who share a common belief in our neighborhood and want to continue to see it do well and thrive! I am especially thankful for the officers of the Civic who believe in me and work so well together to accomplish our goals - Thank You!

I'm also thankful for having such a great relationship and being a part of other organizations in Mayfair. Well run organizations like the Mayfair Business Association, Mayfair Town Watch, the Mayfair / Holmesburg Thanksgiving Parade Committee, the Mayfair Community Development Corporation, and Pennypack Music Festival. Every organization that I am a part of or work with shares a common goal of not only improving our neighborhood, but also making it an awesome place to visit, and great place to live!

Please keep your neighborhood in mind tomorrow night as you too are going down the list of things to be thankful for.

Thank You!

Methadone Clinic Update


It has come to our attention that The Healing Way has won the decision of the Stay last week, and they are now legally able to begin moving into and operating as a medical facility at Frankford and Decatur.

Is the court's ruling a disappointment? Yes

Are we now out of options? NO!!!!

We still have an appeal to be heard, and The Healing Way has yet to be granted a license to dispense Methadone from the State.

These are still TWO very big obstacles in their path!

 Now is not the time to throw in the towel - Now is the time to come together as a community and fight!


 On Friday, November 22, 2013, we are hosting a Beef n Beer at the Parish Pub (formerly Caspers) at 3530 Cottman avenue to offset the legal costs associated with fighting this battle.

 The Beef n Beer is from 7pm to 10pm, and tickets are $30 per person. It includes well drinks, domestic draft beer, $1 domestic bottles, as well as food and live entertainment. We will also have raffle items and a 50/50.

 It sickens me to ask my neighbors to once again reach into their pockets to fight this ongoing battle, however the thought of having a Methadone Clinic within footsteps of an elementary school, a church, a daycare, and a library sickens me even more.

Make no mistake about it, if we run out of funds to fight this battle in court, we have essentially given up.

Simply put, we MUST do this!

 If you are unable to attend the Beef n Beer, please donate via the Mayfair Civic Association website (mayfaircivicassociation.com) and hit the 'Donate' button, or send your donation directly to our legal team marked 'Attention Methadone Clinic' to:

Obermayer, Rebmann, Maxwell and Hippel, One Penn Center, 19th Floor, 1617 John F. Kennedy Blvd., Philadelphia, PA 19103-1895

 You can also drop off your check or money order to State Representative Kevin Boyle's office located at 7518 Frankford avenue.

Thank You!
