Encouraging Civic Engagement
6th Annual Abington Town Hall
Topic: “Collaboration for Innovation”
Date: Wednesday, May 25th, 2016
Place: Penn State Abington, Sutherland Building
Time: 6:30-7:00pm refreshments
7:00-8:30pm meeting/presentations and discussion
Please join your local community for the 6th Annual Abington Town Hall. Our topic this year is “Collaboration for Innovation.”
At the Town Hall, you will have the opportunity to hear representatives from the major civic organizations in Abington discuss how they are collaborating across the community to bring innovative solutions that improve the quality of life for Abington residents. Organizations represented will include Penn State Abington, Abington-Jefferson Health and the Abington School District. Local, state and federal governmental representatives will also participate, including elected officials.
You will be invited to ask questions and learn how you can get involved in areas of the community where you have interest.
Much of the progress Abington has made on economic, educational and environmental factors is tracked through the STAR Communities Rating System™, which will also be introduced at the Town Hall. Although Abington Township is only a year into this program, we are close to achieving a 3 STAR rating. Only 48 communities in the US have achieved this status, and there are none in the local Philadelphia area.
We invite you to join your neighbors and community leaders to hear about these new initiatives and learn how you can help.
RMCA White Paper 2:
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are in Demand
College degrees are very expensive and do not always lead to employment. However, some degrees are more likely to lead to success (and repaying student loans) than others. Pharmacology, nursing, transportation sciences, treatment therapies, chemical and electrical engineering, medical technologies, construction services, management information systems and medical assisting technologies are best.
Abington is one the largest townships in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. RMCA pays close attention to proposals that may impact our safety and property rights and proactively works to improve the community as a whole. The organization collaborates with other groups to maximum our impact. Learn more about local municipal government and schools on the RMCA web site.
The 2012 Abington Traffic Summit was productive

RMCA Past President Paul Aloe mourned
Paul E. Aloe, 87, a civic leader and businessman, died Monday, April 7, 2014, of sepsis at Abington Memorial Hospital. A resident of Abington for 57 years, Mr. Aloe was one of the founders of the Abington Township Republican Organization and served as its chairman in the 1970s.
He was a former president of the Rydal-Meadowbrook Civic Association. He helped create the association's Julie Greenbaum Memorial Award, which recognizes the community service of high school seniors through college scholarship money.
"He inspired and mentored many generations of civic leaders and fought for many civic causes in Abington," said his son, Paul H. Mr. Aloe had owned a small business, E. Hubschman & Sons Inc., a tannery at Orianna and Willow Streets in Philadelphia, founded by his wife's family. Click here to see his full obituary >
