Yardley Living - Best Version Media The exclusive monthly community magazine for residents of Yardley & Lower Makefield, PA. We share stories & content that bring people together and provide a unique way for local businesses to highlight their expertise and reach a highly engaged audience.
(1)

Our family has lived in Bucks County our entire lives. We moved to the Yardley area in 1999, and to our current home in LMT in 2011. In late 2016, we nearly relocated for career purposes. Then, we learned about Best Version Media, a very successful organization that has been bringing communities together through hyper-local publications for 10 years. With backgrounds in writing, marketing and media, and a deep love for this community, it seemed like a perfect match. After much planning and effort, Yardley Living was born! Our first issue mailed to homes in the Summer of '17. We look forward to our ongoing partnership with the Yardley Makefield Community, and perhaps we will be telling your story one day soon!

Mission: Our mission is to bring interesting, entertaining, and meaningful content to our neighbors each month, while helping readers make connections with one another and the sponsors who make this monthly publication possible.

See you starting at 11 AM for outdoor dining at Moish & Itzy’s. 🍽☕️🥗🥯

Good morning. The outdoor patio is ready for you to enjoy brunch and lunch today from 11am. It is Thursday 12/10/20.

We are looking forward to warm sun and 50-55 degrees today with less wind. It should climb to 60’s by Saturday.

It’s warm in the sun so we hope you can come join us for some safely distanced dining on the patio.

The heaters and fire pits are ready to blaze at each table.

Potato pancakes are ready for the holiday week! We’d love to see all of you get some fresh air and sun over the next few days.

Moish and Itzy's Deli Restaurant

🔥🔥🔥Outdoor seating with heaters & personal fire pits? Yes, please!

Good morning. It is Tuesday December 1, 2020. The patio is closed today as unfortunately we expect a day of heavy cloud cover and 40-45 degrees. However, under cover sidewalk cafe seating in front of the restaurant is available with heaters and personal fire pits today. Tomorrow seems to be looking like a wind chill in the 30’s so we will only have indoor very distanced dining as well as outdoor seating in the sidewalk cafe area outside the restaurant with heaters and personal fire pits.

Thursday looks to be SUNNY AND IN THE 50’s. 🙏🏻

We are planning the patio to be open open as we can enjoy the mix of the warmth of the sun and fresh air.
(You’ll all just close your eyes, and picture your eating outside in a gorgeous ski resort in Colorado!)

We have a few more snuggly blankets available for $12.99 and you are welcome to bring your own. Heaters and fire pits will be blazing!

Please support small local businesses today, and throughout the season.
11/28/2020

Please support small local businesses today, and throughout the season.

Support your community and shop small this the holiday season, we are here for you ❤️

11/28/2020

When you support small, locally owned businesses, nearly 70% stays inside the local community.

What Happens When You Shop Local

1. More of your money will be kept in your local economy

For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. What happens when you spend that same $100 at a national chain? Only $43 stays in the community.*

2. You embrace what makes your community unique

You wouldn’t want your house to look like everyone else’s in the U.S. So why would you want your community to look that way?

3. You create local jobs

Local businesses are better at creating higher-paying jobs for your neighbors. When you shop locally, you help create jobs for teachers, firemen, police officers, and many other essential professions.

4. You help the environment

Buying from a locally owned business conserves energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging.

5. You nurture community

Local business owners know you, and you know them. Studies have shown that local businesses donate to community causes at more than twice the rate of chains.

6. You conserve your tax dollars

Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money available to beautify your community. Also, spending locally instead of online ensures that your sales taxes are reinvested where they belong— in your community!

7. You create more choice

Locally owned businesses pick the items and products they sell based on what they know you like and want. Local businesses carry a wid­er array of unique products because they buy for their own individual markets.

8. You took advantage of their expertise

You are their friends and neighbors, and locally owned businesses have a vested interest in knowing how to serve you. They’re passionate about what they do. Why not take advantage of it?

9. You invested in entrepreneurship

Creativity and entrepreneurship are what the American economy is founded upon. Nurturing local business en­sures a strong community.

10. You made your community a destination

The more interesting and unique you community, the more we will attract new neighbors, visitors and guests. This benefits everyone!

A great cause! And a fun chance to smash a pie in someone’s face🤣 Dr Riesenberger has a great sense of humor and likes to give back, so bring a pie tin full or whipped cream and “pie him” to help feed the hungry.

Call the office to sign up Wednesday Nov. 18th at 5:00 and pie me in the face!! For everyone who brings a pie or tin full of whip cream to pie me I’ll donate $10 to the local food bank. Make sure you share and let us know if your coming. #pieinface #drriesenberger #yardleyorho

Girl Power! Our December issues are off to the printer, with a focus on young women in our community. In Yardley, a Girl Scout Troop took over, interviewing sponsors, writing articles, and taking photos. And in Newtown, we highlight the great work of Newtown Rock Softball and the way they bring joy to those in need around the holidays. Arriving in about 2 weeks! Much appreciation to the families that helped bring these issues to life, and the sponsors who make it possible each month.

Thank you, Jeff Bethman, for your support of this incredible program.

Proud to support this year the 2020 Shop with a Cop program with another donation of $1,000 Shop with a Cop is a national program pairing police officers with children to afford them a better holiday season. The program allows children to view police officers in a different atmosphere and promote positive relationships. The program’s participants are elementary students from the Council Rock School District. These children face life challenges such as a parent losing a job, homelessness, military deployment, economic shortcomings, and other hardships.

The Shop with a Cop program is funded solely through the generosity of our local community’s residents and businesses. Each child is allotted a $150 gift card to purchase gifts for themselves and their family members. Volunteers from the community assist with gift wrapping, hosting, and registration. The Newtown Township, Newtown Borough Northampton Township and Upper Makefield Township police officers volunteer their own time to support the program.

Our Family Story

We met while taking a video course at the Community College, married in ‘88, built careers, and had kids later in life. In 2016, Heather was part of a layoff. A new opportunity came quickly, but required a move. It was hard to imagine leaving family, friends and community. We were also concerned a move would disrupt progress for our son with autism.

We found Best Version Media (BVM) created neighborhood publications in upscale communities across the US & Canada. Per Wikipedia, Lower Makefield is a Top 100 community for discretionary income. BVM planned to bring a publication here, knowing it would help local businesses target effectively. They needed a team to work in the community, develop content, find stories, and support sponsors. With backgrounds in marketing, media, video and content, it was a perfect match.

After much planning and effort, Yardley Living was born!

Our first issue mailed to homes in the Summer of '17 featuring the Mongiello Family, Yardley residents making a difference with their advocacy, while bringing hope to families facing ALS and other terminal illnesses. Since then, we’ve profiled dozens of Yardley and LMT residents and local businesses.
