Our volunteers in action​


Special Thanks to PECO
for their continued work in installing the remaining ground plaques into the MoH Grove.
We are moving closer to having all the recipients' names represented.​

Thank you Gerry McConnell, AOH, Delaware County Kelly Division 1, for demonstrating the process of attaching a name plate to a ground stake.​


Today 15 members of the Chester County, Delaware County, Montgomery County and Maryland AOH answered the AOH call.
They attached 250 recipients name tags to ground stakes in 1 1/2 hours.
Thank you all so much.


Fall Cleanup

About 15 folks showed up for our wet and dreary cleanup this morning. Thanks to Davids Drive 831 for the trailer & truck, Joe Sullivan for his truck and Ed Hennessey and daughter April for the making 2 trips to the compost site for us.
The rest of the crew worked on edging the new roadway with soil. Thanks to Elaine Matt for handling the gatehouse.
We got a lot accomplished today. Thanks to all.

Special thanks to the Peco Gas Operators for their volunteer day in the Grove in November. They installed 200+ ground plaques into their appropriate acres. Thank you again PECO!
