CLARKS SUMMIT — The cold and dreary days of winter are here for a while longer, but the Abington Heights Civic League is already thinking spring.
Our third annual Cheers to Spring wine festival will take place on April 27. This is a popular fundraiser held by the Abington Heights Civic League. More details to come, but save the date.
The final drawing for the January calendar was held on the last day of the month. Our members worked to fill the entire month with fabulous prizes that delighted the winners. We hope to do another calendar in the months ahead.
The funds raised from these two events will be added to our yearly donation made to various causes within the community.
The Abington Heights Civic League sponsored the Create-a-Card event at the Abington Community Library Saturday, Jan. 26. The supplies were provided and all ages were invited to use their talents to create cards that will be distributed to patients at our local hospitals and nursing homes. This event was a great success and will brighten the days of many.
In another first, since 1970, the Abington Heights Civic League has offered vision screenings in the Abington Heights School District for all registering kindergartners. The children also receive coloring books from the Pennsylvania Association of the Blind to promote healthy eye care. The screenings will be held in May.
“A Night of Empowerment” with local author Shya Gibbons to be held at the Abington Community Library has been rescheduled for Thursday, Feb. 28 from 6-7:30 p.m. There will be a book signing and light reception after the program, which is sponsored by the Abington Heights Civic League.
New members are always welcome. Meetings are held the first Monday of each month, September through June, at 7 p.m., in Abington Heights Civic League’s clubhouse, 115 Colburn Ave. For more information, call 570-587-3101.
