|Media's Best Band - The Broozers at Media's 5 Mile Race|
I heard from one business on State Street that Friday night was one of their biggest nights of the year. That's great news and shows how important it is to properly market this town throughout the year. I'd also like to thank the great folks at County Beverage for the ice and beer they provided for a party I had. I know you can get beer and supplies cheaper, but the delivery they provided was more than worth the price and I'm glad I can help them out.
Ok, let's GO!
Thanks to everyone who tweeted at: #media5miler over the course of the race. That's some pretty interesting feedback, with cool pictures coming in throughout the day. As an added take away, the live Twitter feed on the right side of this site has been updated to cover businesses and really, all things media.
|Best Breakfast in Town!|
Next Sunday, Media's Best Breakfast at the Media VFW
The last Sunday of every month, the Media VFW hosts the best homemade breakfast in town. Last month they had a record turn-out, so get there early. If you'd like to volunteer, let me know. I'll be there and they can always use the help. Breakfast is served 8:30am till 11:30am.
Fireworks in Media
There haven't been fireworks in Media since they last had a show in Glen Providence Park back in 1986. Most of the municipalities in the county have done away with the tradition, but there are still a few. Delcotimes.com usually has a listing of where you can watch them, so I'll keep an eye out to share.
I saw at Costco last week specials where you can buy an arsenal of fireworks for $150. Any more, it looks like residents have taken pyrotechnic displays into their own hands. I don't know what the ordinance on block firework parties are, but perhaps Media borough should just let people know what that entails.
Fourth of July vs. Bastille Day
Ok, this comes up every year, so let's just address it now. Media doesn't have a Fourth of July parade, despite the displeasure to quite a few. Almost on queue, someone will come up to me on the street and assertively point this out to me and continue to complain we have Bastille Day celebration. I don't mind Bastille Day, in fact I was in St. Tropez last year to see France's version of this holiday. The point is, I don't think this day diminishes the Fourth of July. That's not going to go over well with some, but if someone wants to step up and plan something for this town during the 4th, let me know, there are plenty who will help.
In the meantime, Media's VFW will have a big BBQ in celebration of Independence Day.
Scooters on State Street, but not on sidewalks
At some point the borough should consider adequate motorcycle and scooter parking on State Street, but in the meantime, you aren't allowed to park a registered vehicle on the sidewalk.....and that includes scooters. The Media Police will ticket, so now you know.
