During the Fall of 2018 Chapter members and friends had the opportunity to enjoy a visit to the The Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the high fashion exhibit, hear the festive sounds of the Philly Pops Christmas Concert and to experience the timeless classic The Nutcracker performed by the Brandywine Ballet Company.

PASR Delaware County Chapter volunteers lead by John DellaGuardia, chair of the Social Services Memorial Honor Fund repacked, tagged, and delivered Poinsettia to our members in retirement communities and nursing facilities. Our members look forward to this event each year and appreciate the efforts of our Chapter in sharing holiday wishes.
Our PASR Delaware County Chapter held it’s Fall Luncheon at the Granite Farms Estates on November 1, 2018 featuring a Celebration of Service. Awards were given to individuals that provide service to our Chapter and to the greater community. Their acts of service and volunteerism exemplifies our motto - To serve not to be served.
The awardees are listed below with the title of their award.
In keeping with the theme of service and giving and the efforts of our Community Services Committee, attendees brought donations of non-perishable food for the Bernardine Center and warm clothing items for Kozy Kidz.
In 2018 PASR established the Fred A. McKillop Award honoring the memory of former PASR longtime lobbyist Fred A. McKillop. This award was given to Steve Kupsov, immediate past president of the PASR Delaware County Chapter. Steve received the award at the PASR 2018 Leadership Conference for his longtime work and advocacy in promoting the PASR legislative positions and for educating members about the importance to actively advocate with legislators for the welfare of public school retirees. Steve is the chair of our Chapter Legislative & L/PEC Committee. Information on the efforts of the Committee can be found on our L/PEC page.
