We would like to showcase Yeadon as a place where we welcome residents from other countries who have reached that milestone. We would also be proud of seeing how many various indigenous countries we have that make up our new melting pot.

Madelyn Kieh, a Yeadonite and Penn Wood High School Freshman, is Pennsylvania’s State Finalist in the “DOODLE 4 GOOGLE” competition!
What is Doodle 4 Google??
The Google logo at www.google.com changes into something different each day. Google refers to them as “doodles.” Google holds an annual “Doodle 4 Google” contest where students may submit a doodle of a specific theme selected by the company. This year’s contest theme was “What inspires me?”
Madelyn Kieh submitted the winning doodle for the State of Pennsylvania. Madelyn’s doodle shows how her sister Marilyn, who is also her guardian, inspired her to develop her artistic talents as a young girl. Google selected winners from 53 states and territories.
Madelyn’s doodle was selected over hundreds of other submissions from Pennsylvania and now advances to the National level. Four National Finalists and one National Winner will be selected. All will have their doodles featured on the Doodle 4 Google gallery. National Finalists will receive a $5,000 college scholarship, trip to Google Headquarters in California, Google hardware, and “fun Googley swag.” The National Winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, $50,000 technology package for their school, in addition to the other prizes that also will be won by the Finalists.
A two-week voting period begins TODAY – Monday, May 7th and ends Friday – May 18th. Vote for Madelyn’s Doodle in the Grades 8-9 Category at https://doodles.google.com/d4g/vote.html so she can win a National prize. Her drawing/portrait is featured below.

On Saturday, April 21, 2018 a much needed facelift was given to a main corridor that leads into Yeadon. Volunteers from both Yeadon and Philadelphia collaborated and cleaned up the area of Church Lane at Allen Drive to 70th and Cobbs Creek. This particular area has been an eyesore for a very long time so volunteers from both municipalities worked hand in hand in accomplishing this amazing goal. The area has been eradicated of tons of trash. A big thank you to ALL of the individuals who made it happen. This was not done by one person alone but by everyone collectively. The results speak volumes. Great job to all!
Congratulations to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and all the runner ups for participating in Chief Paparo’s Kids Police Patch design contest! The top 3 designs will be included in whole or in part of the new patch. The new police patch will be on every Yeadon Police Officer’s uniform. The finished product will be presented at Yeadon’s Annual Flag day on June 9th.
