Springfield Sun - - NEWS - For The Am­bler Gazette

The Am­bler Men­non­ite Church has pre­sented Kelly Kreamer-cur­tis, di­rec­tor of the Wis­sahickon Val­ley Boys & Girls Club, with a check for $1,400.

The money was raised April 1 from ticket sales for a din­ner held at the church lo­cated in Am­bler. The Am­bler Men­non­ite Church is also home to the Wis­sahickon Val­ley Boys & Girls Club’s free home­work pro­gram, Pro­ject Learn, which serves more than 40 stu­dents ev­ery week­day.

The church’s Penn­syl­va­nia Dutch Din­ner fea­tured de­li­cious foods in­clud­ing chicken pot pie, coleslaw, ap­ple­sauce, and shoofly pie, and is a pop­u­lar an­nual tra­di­tion in Am­bler.

“Am­bler Men­non­ite Church has pro­vided us with a home for the past four years,” said Robert K. Kreamer, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club. “Our stu­dents and staff want to thank ev­ery­one at the church for all they do to make our home­work pro­gram a suc­cess ev­ery day, and for this gen­er­ous do­na­tion.”
