Two years ago, while having dinner with his wife Christine, HPED Vice President Don Kelly had an idea to create a First Wednesday Dining Club for Haverford Township restaurants. 

"I realized if we want our local restaurants to succeed, we need to encourage people to patronize them during the slow times," explained Kelly.   The club was an immediate hit with residents and restaurants alike, and now boasts a mailing list of close to 100!

Kelly arranges a prix fix dinner for 25-40 residents with 2-3 selections as well as a chance to meet the owner or chef during the dinner.  It is a great way to try new restaurants, support local businesses, and build a sense of community.

Now that the club has tried many of the restaurants in the Township, HPED will offer it every other month in 2017.  We will go to some of restaurants we haven't tried yet, and go back to some of our favorites!
