The word “angel” can have many meanings, but it is always a reflection of something good and positive. Whether referring to a special person in our lives, an individual who has performed a good deed, or someone blessed with a special talent or gift, we all use the word “angel” in a complimentary and positive way.

Young or old, everyone can be someone’s angel. You’re an angel as a small child to your family, and when you help out a friend or neighbor in need. Even better, you’re an angel when you reach out to comfort a stranger. You’re an angel when you volunteer to help others who may not be as fortunate as you.

Angel Park – a new all-inclusive playground and amphitheater facility in Perry Hall has a very real and personal meaning to members of our community. The name was purposely chosen to represent a vision of an ideal setting for happiness and reflection. This name was selected to inspire support from the widest audience and to build the enthusiasm and momentum necessary to make it a reality.

Angel Park began from an idea that came to Kelli and Andy Szczybor after the loss of their baby boy, Ryan. From a sad origin, a bright and life affirming idea emerged – to build a place for laughter, activity and fun, for families and friends throughout the surrounding neighborhoods.

Kelli Szczybor, County Councilman David Marks, and Bill Paulshock will appear on Oak Crest Now on Tuesday, May 17th to discuss how the county has come together to make Angel Park happen and how you can help bring the park to life as well! The show will air at 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM, 7:00 PM, 9:00 PM, and 12:00 AM, and it will be available the following day at www.oakcresttv.com.
