Food Truck Friday July 22: Twisted Elegance

On Friday, July 22 we will be hosting the Twisted Elegance Food Truck.

Maybe you have been lucky enough to get some of their food at the YMCA Block Parties (before they sell out – and they always do!) They are working on the final menu for the night – but we can expect to see some of their most popular items: Philly Cheesesteak Eggrolls, Chicken Parm Eggrolls, Meatball Sliders, Short Rib Grilled Cheese, Tacos, sandwiches, and more!

Their Facebook page (full of 5-star reviews) describes Twisted Elegance: Our goal is to provide a unique experience where we bring the restaurant to you. We are committed to scratch cooking utilizing local and sustainable foods. We are here as the flavor of the community!

The truck will be at Hilltop/Stewart Field starting around 5:00 p.m.

Check them out online here!

What are we missing? Our members! Membership is way down since COVID-19 hit. PLEASE consider joining and supporting the group with your $15 donation now. Two easy ways to join:

Food Truck Fridays are Back June 10

The AMAZING food from Philly Hots! is coming to Hilltop/Steel Feild/Stewart Field! They will be in the lot off Steel Road.
Stop by and bring your appetite, but don’t wait long because once the food is gone, so are they! Setup should be done by 4:30 p.m.
Check out their menu online here: https://www.phillyhots.com/
At home or in the office, their fresh made sandwiches and meal prep kits are the brainchild of Food Network Star “Big Chef” Tom Pizzica. Everything is made fresh and from scratch and locally sourced when possible.

Volunteers Needed!

Our Civic Association needs more volunteers! All our events are run by a core group of 3-4 volunteers with a handful of others helping at events. Please consider adding your name as a “possible volunteer” and help carry on our great traditions!

Our Civic Association continues to work with the Township on revitalizing Richland Park (on West Chester Pike between Tip’s and Rita’s.)
 
The new playground equipment we selected should be installed by the end of September. The basketball court should be painted in October but the painters need to wait for the equipment to be installed to do their work.

Food Truck Friday a Success!

Thanks to everyone who made our first Food Truck Friday a success! The Red Brick Pizza Truck SOLD OUT and had to stop taking orders sometime the day before they arrived.

They apologized for the issues with the order pickup system, but at least we all had amazing weather to enjoy!

Look for future events like this!

Sweatshirts Raise $820 For Our Parks!

WOW!

$820! 

That’s how much we raised by selling 61 sweatshirts as part of our latest campaign for our parks! 

Thank you to everyone who helped make this a success – I hope you love your sweatshirt!

Food Truck Fridays: Red Stone Pizza March 26

We’re excited to bring the Red Stone Pizza Truck to Hilltop on Friday, March 26. They offer amazing wood-fired pizza – and even have some gluten-free options.

How it will work: about one week prior to the event, we’ll provide a link for you to place your order, make payment, and select your pickup timeslot. To help with social distancing, we’ll be spacing pickups every 15 minutes and they will have your food bagged and ready when you arrive.

The truck will be parked at Hilltop/Steel Field (the lot off Steel Road.)

We ask that you place all orders as soon as possible to help us better prep, and they will only accept orders until 10:00am the day of your delivery.

Check out their awesome menu items here!

We’re always looking for new events for our members – if this works out we’ll set up more Food Truck Fridays! 

Hilltop Sweatshirts For Sale!

Our Civic Association is selling Hilltop Sweatshirts as part of a fundraiser for our parks!
 
These super-comfortable sweatshirts are only $35 – and the more we sell, the more landscaping we will be able to add to our parks.
 
We worked with the vendor to pick a not-too-heavy, comfortable sweatshirt that comes in youth and adult sizes! This is the Hanes Eco Blend – partially made from soft recycled materials – so it’s good for us AND the earth!
 
You can have the sweatshirt delivered directly to you for a small fee, or pick it up on Kate Stickel’s porch (Concord Ave) once they are in, for free!
 
The deadline to order is March 9 – don’t miss out!
