The Sycamore Street Community Association (SSCA) and McCaffrey’s Markets will present the SSCA Newtown Community Leadership Award to long-time Sycamore Street resident Vincent A. Lombardi during a special event Thursday.
The “Sycamore Under the Stars” community cocktail reception will be held Thursday from 7 to 10 p.m. at Goodnoe’s Corner.
The event will feature a tent on the street with food and dancing. Point Blank will play music and refreshments will be provided by Sycamore Street restaurants, including the Green Parrot, The Saloon, Sycamore Grill and Sweet Pea.
Lombardi is the president emeritus of the SSCA and former chairman of the Sycamore Street Reconstruction Committee, which oversaw the planning, design and reconstruction of Sycamore Street. He is also a former Newtown Township Supervisor, Planning Commission member and Newtown Township Historic Architectural Review Board member.
"Without Vince’s leadership and vision for Sycamore Street, our town-center would not be what it is today," said SSCA President Shawn Ward. "He truly provided the leadership necessary to make this vision a reality and give us street of which we all are proud.”
The title sponsor for this inaugural event is Newtown newcomer Jim McCaffrey and McCaffrey’s Markets. Other sponsors include Pennoni Associates Engineers & Consultants, Conner & Associates, Bill Marsh Ford, Leck Waste Services, Newtown Rental Center, Goodnoe’s Corner/US Realty, Tyrol Insurance, the Green Parrot, Burns Auto Repair, First Federal Banks of Bucks County and McMahon Associates.
Proceeds from the event will benefit American Flag maintenance along the Street and to assist the association’s mission to preserve and promote the Sycamore Street town-center.
Admission is $75 per person and valet parking will be provided. For more information, contact the Sycamore Street Community Association at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Ward at 215-355-3350.
