Lawncrest has a lot on its plate

Mem­bers of the Lawn­crest Com­munity As­so­ci­ation last week wel­comed of­fi­cials from the 2nd Po­lice Dis­trict and the city man­aging dir­ect­or’s of­fice.

The group also ob­served a mo­ment of si­lence for former heavy­weight box­ing cham­pi­on Smokin’ Joe Fra­zi­er.

Al­though fam­il­ies haven’t even sat down for Thanks­giv­ing din­ner, it’s not too early to think about the Lawn­crest 4th of Ju­ly cel­eb­ra­tion. To vo­lun­teer, call 215-651-8470.
