BLUE LIGHT HOLIDAY TREE LIGHTING
Members of the Feasterville Business Association take time out to pose with government officials and clergy following their 16th annual blue light holiday tree lighting paying tribute to fallen police officers. Picture from left are, Deacon Eric Umlie, of the Assumption BVM Catholic Church in Feasterville, PA., Michael J. Hughes, FBA event chairperson, Lower Southampton Township Supervisor Joseph McFadden, William Wiegman, Jr., president of the FBA and former Lower Southampton Township chief of police, and Rev. Herb Phillips, retired from the Trevose Methodist Church. Project Blue Light was started in 1989 by Dolly Craig to honor the memory of her late son-in-law, 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 (COPS) saying she was placing two blue lights in her window during the holiday season, 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 into a national program and burns bright in the hearts of 10,000 surviving families of officers killed in the line of duty as they rebuild their lives. Now in its 67th anniversary year, the mission of the Feasterville Business Association is to foster and encourage growth and progress for the betterment of the community.
