Feasterville Business Association’s 15th Annual
Project Blue Light Holiday Tree Lighting
Location: Lower Southampton Township Library
Thursday, December 10th 2015 at 6:00pm
Members of the Feasterville Business Assication (FBA) will join with community leaders, government officials and clergy in the FBA’s 15th Annual Project Blue Light Holiday Tree Lighting. The event pays tribute to fallen Police Officers during the Holiday period. Project Blue Light was started in 1989 by Dolly Craig to honor the memory of her late son-in-law, Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Gleason, killed in the line of duty in 1986. Several years ago Craig sent her Holiday Blue Light message to Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. (COPS) saying she was placing two blue lights in her window during the Holiday period, one in memory of Gleason and one remembering his wife, Pam, who was killed in an automobile accident in 1988. Craig is now deceased but her idea is her legacy. Project Blue Light has grown in a national program and burns bright in the hearts of 10,000 surviving famalies who comprise COPS, a national non-profit organization that assists families of officers killed in the line of duty they rebuild their lives.
