All proceeds from last week's event go toward Eat'n Park's Caring for Kids campaign.
Angela Weaver of Canonsburg confirmed: The "Tips for Tots" event that took place at the McMurray Eat'n Park was a success last week—exceeding its fundraising goal of $1,000. Santa and Smiley (the company's mascot) were there for the kids, and Weaver (a server at the restaurant) herself spent time in "jail" to raise "bail" for the campaign—and the event even included a familiar face serving customers. Canonsburg's own Mayor David H. Rhome volunteered as guest server—and Weaver said she was very impressed with his skills!

Scott Blasey of The Clarks will be performing locally Dec. 12 to help the McMurray Eat'n Park raise funds for the campaign—and all money raised benefits local children's hospitals.
Sure, the baskets that Eat’n Park stores raffle off for the company’s annual Care for Kids campaign raises thousands of dollars, and then there’s the Tips for Tots event—one where servers donate 100 percent of their tips to the cause. That cause—children’s hospitals across the region—caused one local woman working at the Eat’n Park in McMurray to step up her fundraising game. Angela Weaver, of Canonsburg, said she is spearheading efforts at the location to help it land in the top 10 fundraisers in the corporation this year. That’s why she not only is participating in the Tips for Tots event (scheduled at the McMurray location from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow—Wednesday), but she will also spend time in jail for it. Yes, Weaver said, the …

This sign outside the Muse Volunteer Fire Department is one of the latest community tributes to a longtime retiring police officer.
Blue ribbons and thank you notes keep cropping up across Cecil Township as a tribute to retiring long-time Cecil police Sgt. Tom Weaver. Members of the Muse Volunteer Fire Department recently posted a thank you message on the sign outside their department—one of many tokens of appreciation seen in the township. Weaver's daughter, Angela, spearheaded the Sergeant Weaver Blue Ribbon Tribute. "So many blue ribbons appearing and I LOVE it!!" Angela Weaver wrote on the event's Facebook page this week. "We still have time until the 18th so please keep putting those blue ribbons out there, lets fill the whole township!! Love you all, thanks!!" For more information on the tribute, to add a photo to our online scrap book for Sgt. Weaver or to leave…

The longtime member of the Cecil Township Police Department is retiring—read how you can be part of his daughter's tribute to him.
I got a text message late last night telling me I had to check out the Facebook page of a friend who is trying to honor her father—who just happens to be a retiring veteran police sergeant with Cecil Township. I was struck by Angela Weaver’s idea—the Sergeant Weaver Blue Ribbon Tribute—and was inspired to think of how we at Canon-McMillan Patch could show our gratitude for her dad’s years of service protecting the community. But I’m getting ahead of myself (as I usually do). And besides, this is Angela’s story, anyway. So I will let her tell it. Here’s what she wrote on the Sergeant Weaver Blue Ribbon Tribute page: “Hello Cecil Twp! I need your help to honor a wonderful man, my father—Tom Weaver. You probably know him as Sergeant Tom …
