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!
Donny Smith
