Communities across Pennsylvania have been "kicking butts out of parks" with the Young Lungs at Play initiative.

Young Lungs at Play is a health initiative funded by the PA Department of Health to promote clean air and bring awareness of the harm tobacco use can have on young children.

On Wednesday, March 21, 2012 at 7:30 PM, during the regular Township Council meeting, Upper Darby Township will be recognized for it's leadership in supporting this program.

For those smokers struggling to quit, Crozer Keystone and Ches Penn Health System are offering free smoking cessation groups in the Township.  Currently there is a session at Sellers Memorial Library, (76 South State Road) and a future session scheduled Thursday, Sept 27 at 5 the Municipal Branch Library (501 Bywood Avenue).

Council meetings are held the third Wednesday monthly at the Upper Darby Municipal Building, 100 Garrett Road.
