Dear Friends and Neighbors of Cedar Park,
Once again, Cedar Park Neighbors, in cooperation with area churches and other nonprofit organizations, will prepare and distribute food baskets for those in need during the holiday season.
In 2014, we were able to reach 140 families (over 600 people). As a continuation of this successful event, we need your financial help and support! Please click here for our donation campaign page on MemberPlanet.
Please consider a suggested donation in the amount of $36. Support at this amount will help us feed two families and foster our commitment to “neighbors helping neighbors.” For your convenience, we have also included payment options to join or renew annual membership with Cedar Park Neighbors as well as an “any amount” option.
We will be packing and distributing the baskets on Saturday, December 19, 2015 from 8:30am -10:30am at Renewal Presbyterian Church, located on the corner of 47th and Cedar Ave. All volunteers are most welcome! Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions. We thank you in advance for your support!

2015 Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund Recipients with CPN Scholarship Committee Members
Six young Cedar Park residents’ return to school will be a little bit easier this fall thanks to the Cedar Park Neighbors’ Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund. In addition to scholarships of over $1,000 each for educational expenses, the students will also receive mentoring, care packages, and networking opportunities from the fund throughout school year.
New to the Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fund are two incoming college freshmen. Abdoulaye Dia is a 2015 graduate of the Charter High School for Architecture and Design (CHAD), and will be attending Denison University. Dante Gibbons, also a 2015 CHAD graduate, will be attending Penn State University to study Geosciences.
Returning scholarship recipients include Ainye Clarke, who is entering her second year studying Psychology at Rosemont College. Andrew Kulasegram-Wilson is in his third year at Drexel University where he studies Engineering. Danielle Little attends Columbia College in Chicago, and is beginning her second year studying Arts Management with a Business and Entrepreneurship Major. Dung Nguyen is in her final year at Temple University’s School of Pharmacy.
These scholarships are possible through the generous support of the donors to the Gary Bronson Memorial College Scholarship Fundraiser. Major sponsors of the April 2015 event were the Fleming Family Fund, Gregg & Rachel Mohrmann, Philadelphia Federal Credit Union, and Fred Wolfe Jr. We thank those sponsors and all who contributed to making the event a huge success.
Cedar Park Neighbors is extremely proud of these active and dynamic students and their accomplishments. Please join us in congratulating these young members of our Cedar Park community, and wishing them the best in their studies.

This year, hundreds of friends and neighbors attended each of the Cedar Park Neighbors’ Live Jazz Fridays with sponsorship, crowd donations, and beautiful weather permitting a total of 11 amazing summer concerts. A particular pleasure was seeing so many familiar faces from Jazz seasons’ past, and watching as new faces became familiar, returning week after week. For two concerts in July, professional photographer and Cedar Park Neighbors’ board member JJ Tiziou was on hand to capture the sheer joy of these evenings. In gratitude to all who attended and made this season possible, we now share some of these beautiful images. Please join us again in Cedar Park in 2016!
