New Year Luminarias
Since 2008, Plush Mills has supported Strath Haven High School’s A Better Chance (ABC) program by taking part in the First Night Luminaria fundraiser. ABC provides educational opportunities in the country’s top public and private schools for talented, disadvantaged students. Longtime Plush Mills resident Ken Wright led the effort, aided by neighbors Roberta Pacini, Jerry Murphy, Bill Eisele, Tom Fileccia and Dick Kirchner. Together, they assembled 350 Luminaria!
Six Strath Haven students arrived at 5:00 to place the bags and light the candles. Afterwards, residents treated the students to hot cocoa, cookies, and popcorn.
