The Remembrance Poppy was inspired by a poem, and is worn to this day, to commemorate those who have died in war since 1921.Here is the poem, In Flanders Field, written by a Canadian physician John McCrae: In Flanders fields the poppies blow     Between the crosses, row on row,   That mark our place; and in the sky   The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,   Loved and were loved, and now we lie       In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw   The torch; be yours to hold it high.   If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow       In Flanders fields (thank you wikipedia)

Aldan real estate activity gets off to a bit of a slow start in 2011. Aldan PA is one of the smaller boroughs in Delaware County PA and is known as the Community of Homes. It is just 6 miles west of Philadelphia and currently has approximately 1500 residential properties with just over 4000 residents. Founded in 1893, Aldan has always focused on the success and lifestyle of its residents and has traditionally had few businesses. With excellent transportation links to the surrounding area, Aldan is today served by both the the SEPTA 102 Trolley Line and the SEPTA Media/Elwyn Regional Rail Line (formerly R3 Line) as well as the local SEPTA bus lines.  These provide quick and easy access to downtown Philadelphia. Real estate activity in the borough peaked in 2004 when there were 91 complet...

Welcome to Aldan Borough Pennsylvania.  Today we are visiting the Aldan PA SEPTA 102 Trolley Line Station located in the center of Aldan at the intersection of Woodlawn Avenue and Providence Rd.  Aldan Borough Pa is located just south of Clifton Heights, east of Upper Darby and Springfield, north of Collingdale and Sharon Hill, and generally west of Lansdowne and Darby. The SEPTA 102 Line runs from the 69th Street Terminal to Sharon Hill.  This station is just two stops south of where it crosses the SEPTA R3 Regional Rail Line which runs from Center City out to Media/Elwyn.  This line runs down the center of Woodlawn Ave through the center of Aldan and does not have any designated parking although street parking is available.  There is some additional parking adjacent to the R3 Station....

Reginald Rose's classic courtroom drama "Twelve Angry Men" opens this weekend at Colonial Playhouse in Aldan, PA.  For those of you not familiar with it, "Twelve Angry Men" tells the story of a jury faced to reconsider its nearly unanimous decision during a murder trial, when one juror begins to try to persuade the other members not to convict based on reasonable doubt.  The arguments get heated and the exchanges force all the jurors to confront their own prejudices, in order to render a fair decision. The play runs on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 PM, and Sunday afternoons at 2 PM through November 22.  The shows stars local Delaware County residents and includes a theatre debut from Pennsylvania Mortgage Broker, Oliver Chamberlain as the guard.  Colonial Playhouse is a community th...
