Anniversary Celebration

Huge Thanks from Little Ivyland


We’d like to thank everyone who helped make our 150th Anniversary Celebration event a big success. At the risk of leaving anybody out this includes all our great sponsors, all the people that made personal donations, everyone that bought Ivyland merchandise on our fundraising website, our awesome 150th Celebration Committee members and the great volunteers who all gave their time to help before during and after the event. Our event participants, exhibitors and performers, too. We also don’t want to forget our fire police and police force for manning the barricades and keeping us all safe. And of course, a big thanks to all who came to the celebration from the borough and neighboring communities – we appreciate you ignoring the rain. Your patience paid off with a beautiful afternoon and evening for the history books. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

The Christmas Card Exchange is here.  No postage necessary, just drop off cards to be exchanged within the borough at one of the drop off houses and we will hand them out. If anyone would be willing to help us hand out cards, it would be appreciated. Just let Sal DiPaolo or me know. Spread the word since not everyone is on social media and it;s too tight a schedule to get out a flier.

There are even ways to have a presence at our event, too.  Check out our 150th Event Sponsorship Opportunities.  Then contact us at ivyland150@ivylandborough.org or call Geff Rapp 215.570.7979.

Individual residents, former Ivylanders and neighbors can help support the event with donations of any size.  Follow the Donate link here or above to make a contribution securely online.  Or send a check to Ivyland Heritage Association, 991 Pennsylvania Ave, Ivyland PA 18974.

Volunteer

We need volunteers for the 150th Event Day!

Our big 150th Anniversary Celebration is fast approaching and we really need some volunteers to help – especially on event day Saturday June 24th.   We have all kinds of things that need a helping hand – some require some physical arms and legs and some don’t.  So really anybody can be of help.  Sign up here or email us at ivyland150@ivylandborough.org and let us know how you can help.
