In July members of our Chapter and friends enjoyed a luncheon buffet and show at the Candlelight Theatre in Arden Delaware. The show Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? was both poignant and funny. For more RECREO trip information check out http://www.delcopasr.org/recreo-trips.html .
The Delaware County Chapter of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (PASR) marks the 80th anniversary celebration of PASR by donating 80+ books to the Bernardine Center in Chester Pennsylvania. The mission of the Bernardine Center is to provide a helping hand to low-income Chester area residents. The book donation will be used as part of the family education programs offered by the Center. Chapter volunteers helped label each book with a bookplate commemorating the 80th Anniversary of PASR.
This Spring, members enjoyed two RECREO events a day at the Phillies Game at Citizens Bank Park and a trip to the Museum of the American Revolution. Immediately after the Phillies vs. Giants game seniors were invited down on on the field for the Seniors Stroll the Bases event and to top off the day the Phillies won!
During the visit to the Museum of the American Revolution members got to explore the dynamic story of the American Revolution through its collection of Revolutionary era artifacts, dioramas, films, & interactive exhibits. Learn about the entire period from colonial unrest to the Treaty of Paris. A special treat was seeing the multimedia show of George Washington’s Tent.
