Cheltenham Township honors Mary Washington, longtime crossing guard, and Arcadia University, Ray Miller for Glenside sign restoration

The Cheltenham Township Board of Commissioners took time during their November 15 meeting to honor Mary Washington, a crossing guard for the Township for 46 years, on her retirement.

Her sons attended the meeting to accept the framed resolution on her behalf.

“She is the matriarch of probably 150 collective years of public service, just from her family alone over the last 50 years. Quite inspiring, and thank you very much,” commissioner Ann Rappoport said.

The Board also presented community service awards to Arcadia University for their restoration of the Glenside sign at Limekiln Pike and S Easton Road.

“These awards are recognizing the hard work of the Glenside side at the corner of Limekiln and Easton Road. It’s a gateway to our community and symbols the connection between Arcadia University and the Township,” commissioner Matt Areman said.

Ray Miller of R&R Voice and Data was presented with an award for his donation to Arcadia University to make the beautification possible.

“It was a team effort all-around,” Areman said.

In related news, the Township renewed a Facility Usage Agreement between Cheltenham Township and Salus University for the Indoor Pickleball Program from December 11 to April 6, 2024.

“They’ve been good partners with us and we thank them for offering their facilities,” commissioner Brad Pransky said.
