2014 SABA Easter Egg Hunt

04/12/2014 11:00 am

SABA is happy to announce this year's Easter Egg Hunt at Normandy Park:

Saturday April 12 at 11:00 (rain date April 19)

Bring your eager egg hunters (age 1-9), dressed to parade, baskets or bags, and a camera for photo ops with the Bunny.

See you there!! Wear an Easter Bonnet or Bunny ears, if you dare!

Also, can you possibly help out? We are looking for families to:
- tack posters on telephone poles around the neighborhood to announce the event (we have the supplies)
- be "Egg Guards"... you or your children (7 or over) come to the event at 10:30 prompt to lay out the eggs and then guard them against poaching.

Please send a reply if you can assist, we'd appreciate it (comments @sabanews.org).

SABA 4th of July Event 2013

07/04/2013 10:00 am
07/04/2013 1:00 pm

The annual South Ardmore Independence Day celebration will take place on Thursday, July 4th!

Bring your children, nieces, nephews, grandkids, and of course, your neighbors.
Our event begins with a parade of bikes, strollers and wagons decked out in red, white and blue.

We will depart from Chestnutwold Elementary at 10am, led by fire trucks from the Merion and Oakmont Fire Companies.
From the school we will proceed up Belmont Avenue, turning right on Pont Reading and then left on Morris, before continuing to Elwell Field at the intersection of Ardmore and Morris Avenues.

There, kids can participate in field events, compete in the “best-decorated” contest, get temporary tattoos, and play with plastic gimp string. If you’re hot, get wet under The Big Splash! If you’re hungry, hot dogs, pretzels, baked goods, and cold drinks will be available for purchase.
