They've got their costumes! Do you?

I love Halloween – Why? Well, it’s the precursor to the “holidays” and, in recent years, it has been the harbinger “of sleep...” that we will be reclaiming that hour of sleep we forfeited in the spring.  Besides the candy, it’s a seasonal invitation to let one’s creativity abound—thinking of the infinite number or character or costume possibilities.  Most fitting, I suppose that this is the season when two of our regions newest icons have been introduced:  “Gritty” representing the Philadelphia Flyers and “Squiggles” the new face of the Please Touch Museum.   

Whether you love ‘em or not, mascots have power – as Webster says… to bring them good luck.

So, this seems like the right moment to say that we at Dunleavy have a mascot and we’d like to introduce you to him… his name is Seamus O’Dunleavy


Seamus is small but he has mightily magical powers... he generously showers good luck on our team by bringing wonderful new organizations into our orbit every day.  

This month Seamus’s magic brought us Special Olympics Pennsylvania, Share Food Program, Philadelphia Aquatic Center, Wissahickon Valley Public Library, Neighborhood Gardens Trust and Washington Memorial Heritage.

Here’s to a happy Halloween and more magic from our favorite leprechaun Seamus (who some have observed looks like Gritty’s irish cousin)!
