Monthly meetings on the fourth Tuesday of every month with the exception of July, August are a great way to stay informed. Meetings include reports from our Township Commissioners and discussion of issues effecting Gladwyne and the broader Township.
We publish a newsletter twice a year updating the entire community on events, issues and accomplishments.

The GCA also sponsors the following annual community events:
Gladwyne Clean-Up Day
This event is supported by our local businesses and organizations. Volunteers meet at the Gladwyne Superfresh for assignments and supplies. Hoagies and soft drinks are provided. Volunteers are always needed.
Gladwyne Memorial Day Parade & Block Party
This commemorative day is sponsored by the Gladwyne Civic Association and held in the heart of the village. The parade assembles at 11:00 a.m. behind the Gladwyne Park. Children are invited to decorate their bikes, wagons, strollers and walk or ride in the parade. The parade begins at noon followed by a ceremony honoring our veterans. Food, fun and entertainment fill the block party and many wear red, white and blue for this very special day. Volunteers are always needed.
Tree and Menorah Lighting Ceremony
This new and exciting event is co-sponsored with the Gladwyne Firehouse. The community gathers to watch the Menorah and tree light up, we sing carols, eat and drink great food prepared by our local businesses, and fun gifts for kids are handed out! Usually in December between 5pm on a Sunday. All residents, dogs and families should come join us to sing and have fun!
