Birthday Lawn Bandit partners with Alpha Bravo Canine for fundraiser �On April 17, Nicky Christopher is seeking donations for the nonprofit that provides service puppies to veterans By Samantha Bambino The Times

In just one year, 12-year-old Nicky Christopher has gained unprecedented notoriety in his Lower Makefield community and beyond. Belovedly known as the “Birthday Lawn Bandit,” the Pennwood middle schooler sneakily “raids” the lawns of locals, intricately decorating the space with balloons, massive cardboard cupcakes and more to help them enjoy their big day. Each person receives a loot bag that’s personalized based on their interests. Nicky, who was diagnosed on the spectrum in first grade, launched the initiative in 2020 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With so many of his friends’ birthday parties canceled, Nicky wanted to do something special for them. “It started with a raid for a friend, putting up signs,” Nicky told The Times in a recent Zoom interview. “And then it became more public to cheer up people.” Since in-person learning has resumed, Nicky’s raids are limited to weekends for the most part. To date, the young entrepreneur has raided the lawns of over 300 people, including classmates, graduating high school seniors and a woman celebrating her 100th birthday. He was featured on Action News, and was honored by Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick on the U.S. House floor. Neither he nor his mom/secretary Sara Christopher envisioned the project becoming so popular. “We were doing it for $10, just putting balloons out. We were looking SOURCE: SARA CHRISTOPHER to just cheer up the community. A lot of people were really depressed.

Shelter is Thursday, April 8, at 6 p.m. Due to social distancing concerns, this event will be held virtually. Last year, the shelter provided a temporary home to 352 Bucks County residents who were struggling with homelessness, with 111 of these shelter residents children under the age of 18. During this time, Family Service saw a 30-percent increase to its shelter waitlist and a 35-percent increase in costs due to necessary COVID-19 precautions. Shelter staff works with each resident to address issues that may have contributed to their current situation or may be barriers to their finding stable housing. Shelter residents are connected with health evaluations and referrals, counseling, case management, job search resources, transportation to appointments and interviews and more. The goal for each person entering the shelter is for them to leave with the keys to their own home at the end of their stay. To support these efforts, Family Service is inviting the community to join the virtual benefit kickoff, which will be simultaneously streamed on Zoom and Facebook Live on April 8, at 6 p.m. The event will showcase the work done at the shelter and stories of recent challenges and successes. Following the kickoff, the benefit will continue for the next two weeks with local individuals, busi-

BIRTHDAY➤ Continued from Page 1 everything that he was using was donated by the community or recycled.” Currently, a lawn raid costs $50. Nicky donates half of the proceeds to his favorite charity - Alpha Bravo Canine. The local nonprofit provides service dogs to area veterans suffering from PTSD at no charge. Nicky was introduced to the organization through his best friend, fellow Pennwood student Ben Ruepp, whose mother Tracy Ruepp serves as a puppy raising coordinator. On Saturday, April 17, which happens to be Nicky’s own 13th birthday, he is hosting a fundraiser for Alpha Bravo Canine at the Lower Makefield Township pool parking lot, located at 1100 Edgewood Road in Yardley, from noon to 3 p.m. Residents can stop by at any time. A slew of area businesses donated raffle baskets, which feature everything from a Glo Derma spa service and Kate Spade goodies, to a free 6-week class at Tail Waggers Academy. For a small fee, guests can receive a puppy kiss from an Alpha Bravo puppy in training. Nicky and Ben will also be making balloon animals. “What I like about this event is, we’ve been able to recruit other Pennsbury students,” said Sara. “Because Alpha Bravo Canine is a 501(c)(3), they can use these volunteer hours for the National Honor Society.” The fundraising goal is $10,000. According to Tracy, this would help Alpha Bravo Canine open its own ADA-compliant facility (it utilizes a shared share at the moment). Funds would also help it train more puppies, a process that costs at least $30,000. “That’s a huge help for us because, as a small nonprofit, we’ve been hit hard by COVID. Over the last year, we haven’t been able to hold our annual fundraiser,” said Tracy. Alpha Bravo Canine was established in 2015 with the mission of saving veteran lives. Statistics show that 20 veterans commit suicide every day due to PTSD-related issues. “The dog is trained to pick up on their movements and their breathing. We train the dogs to monitor breathing patterns for anxiety. It goes a long way to getting the veterans their life back. Some of them can’t leave the house because of their anxiety and PTSD, and they’re able to once they get a dog,” Tracy said, adding that many no longer need medication once they acquire a furry friend. “It gives the veterans anothApril 7, 2021

er purpose with the dog.” All Alpha Bravo animals begin training with a volunteer puppy raiser at around 8 weeks old. Puppy raisers take training classes at a Newtown facility and bring their tiny trainee everywhere with them - the grocery store, doctor’s office and even the Philadelphia Zoo. “They have to have every exposure. Anywhere they’d go with the veteran, they have to be able to work through all the distractions,” said Tracy. Veterans are supplied with a year’s worth of food, toys and treats. All they have to worry about is bonding with their puppy, who is typically 15 to 18 months old. Every puppy is named after a veteran who either took his own life or died in service. Tracy was nearly brought to tears while talking about Tristan, named after a puppy-raising family’s son who was killed in a roadside bombing in Iraq. For anyone who would like to donate but is unable to attend the April 17 fundraiser, they can do so from Alpha Bravo Canine’s Amazon wish list at amazon.com/ hz/wishlist/ls/1IQJO47CEJU6A or via Venmo @birthdaylawnbandit. Visit alphabravocanine.org for more information. The nonprofit will be accepting applications that day for veterans interested in a puppy, and locals interested in becoming a puppy raiser.

Pennsbury class of 2021 to enjoy outdoor prom �The arrival parade and hallway walk-through will remain; Falcon Field will feature carnival games and more By Samantha Bambino The Times

Countless hearts were shattered last year when the Pennsbury High School senior prom was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dubbed “best prom in America” by Reader’s Digest and Seventeen, the annual event never fails to be unforgettable for students, staff and volunteer parents alike. Teens arrive in classic cars and jaw-dropping floats in a nearly 3-hour parade, after which family and community members cheer them on as they walk the red carpet. From there, they explore the gymnasium, hallways and bathrooms, all lavishly decorated to suit a chosen theme. The night continues with the crowning of the prom king and queen, followed by celebrity entertainment. Past guests included Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D, and Drake Bell from Nickelodeon’s Drake and Josh. As the class of 2021 nears the end of its Pennsbury journey, the administration is making sure another group doesn’t miss out on prom - something students anticipate attending from the time they are a freshman. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, June 5, at the high school’s East Campus, and will have the theme “Hollywood Nights.” Restrictions surrounding COVID-19 are being implemented.

“We have met with multiple groups of students, including our large prom committee, to gather their ideas on how this could be a really exciting night that takes into account all proper health and safety precautions,” said PHS East Principal Reggie Meadows. “While dancing and a bigname performer are not part of the program, we believe we have developed an alternative plan that will satisfy many and leave a memorable mark in the minds and hearts of our graduating seniors.” Meadows shared that the altered prom will still include the traditional arrival parade, red carpet entrance and walk-through of the school hallways, which will feature hand-painted murals and 3D art by the prom committee, parents and loyal alumni. Formal attire is encouraged as usual. An outdoor, tented dinner will be provided by a local caterer. Attendees can enjoy a hypnotist show and performance by the Faculty Band - two other favorite traditions. This year’s rendition of the Faculty Band includes many names familiar to PHS seniors - John Sanders, Mark Cherepko, Jamie Rivera, Steve Myers, Evan Altieri, Jim Moyer and Scott Stout. Falcon Field will be transformed to allow seniors to gather safely in an outdoor setting. Carnival-style games, music, refreshments and the crowning of the 2021 prom

king and queen will be among the planned activities in that venue. “We also hope to record, live stream and post as much of the event as we can so that family members and friends who are unable to come as spectators can enjoy this year’s senior prom as much as possible,” said Meadows. More information will come in the following weeks regarding the arrival parade route and spectator locations. Additionally, since they didn’t get to attend their own prom, students from the class of 2020 are invited as guests. According to Meadows, about 125 of last year’s graduating seniors expressed interest. •• The plans described are current as of this date. They may be modified based upon future orders by Gov. Tom Wolf for increased or reduced mitigation efforts.

Bensalem detective to appear on ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ ➤Chris McMullin, who has been pursuing acting for 20 years, plays a fire captain on the April 8 episode

By Samantha Bambino The Times

Chris McMullin, a detective with the Bensalem Police Criminal Investigations Division, never intended to be an actor. But a little over 20 years ago, he fell in love with being on camera. “It’s actually [director of public safety] Fred Harran’s fault,” McMullin told The Times. “Around 1998, the Bucks County DA’s office and the Network of Victim Assistance, they were putting together some training videos, how to properly testify in court, how to investigate crimes. They hired a production company and actors, but they wanted some real cops to play the police parts.” Harran asked McMullin, who was

28 at the time, if he’d be interested. “For a couple days, instead of going to work, I got to go to a film set. I was really hooked by it,” said McMullin. “The director encouraged me to pursue it. I started taking acting lessons, got headshots. I’ve been at it ever since.” Over the years, McMullin’s IMDB page has steadily grown. He briefly appeared in the 2011 film Limitless starring Bradley Cooper as well as Apple TV’s Servant. Now, at 51, McMullin landed a role on one of his all-time favorite shows - the popular crime drama series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. On Thursday, April 8, at 9 p.m. on NBC, viewers will see the Bensalem detective portray a FDNY captain on season 22, episode 10, which is entitled “Welcome to the Pedo Motel.” For McMullin, being able to add Law & Order to his resume has been a year in the making. After a successful audition in February 2020, production shut down indefinitely because of the COVID-19 pandemic. “When COVID canceled it, there was talk that maybe they were going to rewrite all of their episodes to make them COVID-oriented. I had always wanted to be on Law & Order since I started acting around 2000, 2001, and I joined SAG in 2003,” he said. “It was always a goal. I was so close and then COVID hit. So, I was really happy when I got the call that it was still on.” On the heels of playing back-toback cop characters, embracing his inner fireman was a nice change of pace. “In a perfect world, I’d like to try some other stuff like playing a lawyer, playing a victim, playing a bad guy,” said McMullin. “I’m gonna sound like a total nerd when I say this but I would love to be on Cobra Kai, although I’m never going to get a shot at it. That channels my inner

1980s nerd teenager.” Despite McMullin’s Law & Order appearance consisting of two scenes and two lines, it required him to travel to New York by train several times in one week. In addition to filming in Manhattan and Brooklyn, he was tasked with heading up three days prior for a COVID test. “It was a lot of running back and forth, but you’ve got to be in it to win,” he said. Since McMullin’s detective duties take precedence, there are some auditions and gigs he’s forced to pass on. “It’s tough. I might get a call at 3 p.m. on a Tuesday, ‘Can you be in New York tomorrow at 9 a.m. for an audition?’ And I may have court that day and I can’t get out of it. It’s very random and there’s a lot of variables and luck to whether or not I can make it work,” he said. “I was really determined to make this work when

they said it was back on again.” Being part of Law & Order is a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity, but McMullin wanted the job for a sentimental reason as well. “Law & Order was my grandmother’s favorite show,” he said. “Unfortunately, she’s no longer with us to see it, but she used to watch it religiously. I always wanted to be on it while she was still here.” Currently on the verge of retirement, McMullin hopes he can pursue acting on a more regular basis in the near future. “I don’t have any expectations that I would ever be an A-list superstar. I just want to work. I want to be a working actor,” he explained, adding that he even has some ideas for a screenplay. “In the meantime, I’m just going to keep at it and when I’m lucky enough to book a role, I’ll make the most out of it. It’s fun. It’s a good distraction.” •• April 7, 2021

Local golf enthusiasts are invited to swing for a good cause in June. On Friday, June 4, at the Northampton Valley Country Club in Richboro, the Miracle League of Northampton Township is hosting its first golf tournament. Proceeds from the event will benefit the organization, which provides athletic opportunities for people of all ages with physical and developmental disabilities. Initially, the mission of the tournament was to raise funds for improvements at

the Northampton Township Municipal Park playground. However, Miracle League was able to complete the $700,000 project of making the space handicap accessible prior to the event. “The purpose of the golf tournament now will be to sustain the organization moving forward. We’re hoping that what we can raise from this annual outing on a yearly basis will help cover the costs to provide the programs that Miracle League currently provides,” said Brian Damiani, who has been involved with Miracle League for 28 years as a coach and past president of the board of directors.

While the “National” division is competitive, “American” is for those who are a bit older or don’t have quick reflexes.

“We want to allow them to compete at a level that they’ll be successful at,” Damiani said. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, all Miracle League sports were canceled in 2020. According to Damiani, he and all of the participants are excited to get back on the field for baseball this month.
