Mike Bobby, John Duffy and Steve Phillips keep watch on Fox Chase
They are the eyes and ears of the Fox Chase community. Since 1995 The Fox Chase Town Watch has patrolled the streets of Fox Chase, alerting police to incidents and making note of ongoing problems that need police attention. Steve Phillips, current president of the Watch, has been a member since 1995. Membership is open to residents 18 years and older.
Members receive training, but rule No. 1 is to remember as a member you are not a law enforcement officer. Phillips became involved after the death of Eddie Polec, “Witnessing the death of Ed Polec has been my motivation for the last 17 years. I said to myself, this will not happen again, and that is why I do this.” continue reading »

On Saturday, Jeanes Hospital and the Katie Elise Lambert Foundation will host a Butterfly Release to honor deceased loved ones, especially those who died in household accidents. In addition to safety information, products and tip, children’s entertainment will include Chippy the Clown and facepainting.
There will only be 100 butterflies on hand for the event, so those who’d like to participate should call in advance, though the event is open to the public.
Katie Elise Lambert was an area toddler who died when a large dresser fell on her in 2005. Her family set up the foundation to educate people about household dangers. For more information about the event and the Katie Elise Lamber Foundation, visit the Web site to download the flyer.
