Chester County Briefly: January 11
Stephanie Nolan Deviney, a partner at Fox Rothschild’s Exton office, was named chair of the Arthritis Foundation’s Eastern Pennsylvania Leadership Board.
The Arthritis Foundation works with families to conquer everyday battles through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science, and community connections.
Deviney has been a committed member of the Arthritis Foundation for years. Last year, she chaired the “Commitment to a Cure” event, and this year, she chaired the “Bone Bash,” which raised funds for arthritis research and advocacy.
In her new role, she will be tasked with leading a powerful and committed community of volunteers, and ensuring the Arthritis Foundation’s strategic plan and mission is carried out.
Friends Association for the Care & Protection of Children
Close to 100 volunteers from Chester County will serve the homeless families living in the Friends Association Emergency Family Shelter on the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“MLK Day of Service kicks off the new year with a dedication to community service,” said Catherine Friedman, the association’s Executive Director. “For Friends Association, the volunteerism and donations allow us a fresh start for the year, reminding the families we serve that they are a part of a community that cares.”
The Friends Association is the oldest child-welfare serving organization in the state.
“It is not only rich in history, but the shelter meets a critical need for the most vulnerable in our community,” said Jill Laufenberg, the association’s Volunteer Coordinator.
Kevin Mengel, owner of FASTSIGNS franchise locations in Exton and King of Prussia, has been selected to serve on the FASTSIGNS National Advertising Council for FASTSIGNS International, the leading sign, graphic, and visual communications franchisor of more than 675 independently owned and operated locations.
As a member of the council, Mengel works with FASTSIGNS International to provide strategic guidance in the development of marketing and advertising initiatives designed to benefit the FASTSIGNS franchise network.
“I’m pleased to be a part of the Ad Council because I understand the power of branding and marketing,” he said.
Both of Mengel’s franchises have been recognized for their performance and sales volume. In 2017, Mengel – along with his wife, Carrie, and son, Chris – received the FASTSIGNS Heart of the Company Award. It honored them for their generosity and selfless contributions to help FASTSIGNS franchisees suffering personal or business hardship.
