People of Conshohocken - Caitlin Albany

People of Conshohocken – Caitlin Albany


by Brian Coll

This is part of our People of Conshohocken series…
We have close to 10,000 people in our borough, add in the residents of West Conshohocken, Plymouth, Whitemarsh and Lafayette Hill and we have a large community. Some of the people that will be featured will be well known in the area, some will have just moved into the area, some will have been here their entire lives. Some of them may be business owners, or people who walk around the area, or maybe work in the area. Maybe you know them, maybe you don’t. Everyone has a story. While we are only going to take their picture and maybe ask a question or two, we want to share these stories with you.

********************************************************************** I met Caitlin when she came to my shop (Coll’s Custom Framing) asking about a book. After talking for a minute or two about the books she thought one of them would make a good gift for her family. Of course we ask, oh, who is your family…. and she starts telling us about the Ruggiero’s. Well, we don’t need an introduction to the Ruggiero’s, there have been a number of great Ruggiero’s in this community for years and years. Her mom is Donna Ruggiero (born and raised in Conshy). Caitlin herself moved here about a year ago to be closer to cousins and family and recently started working in West Conshohocken. We talked a little more about her family including her Great Uncle Fran who was mayor here in Conshohocken, Her grandfather Dominic had a barber shop in the borough for years and years. And of course Mr. Fran Ruggiero who was a police officer as well as ran an undertaking business and is an all around good guy. Of course this wouldn’t be a People of Conshohocken if we just talked about her family, so let’s tell you a little bit about Caitlin….. Honestly, she was a pleasure to talk to because she is involved with the young adult group at Saint Matthews, loves walking to the local restaurants, works off those fun nights out by hitting Tone Zone a few times a week and she plays in the Conshy Sport and Social Leagues. She’s enjoying living in the Riverwalk community as well as the greater Conshohocken community. You might catch her at the Conshohocken Italian Bakery getting a cannoli for a treat or stopping by Scoop’s on a nice summer night. Guys…. I didn’t see a ring on her fingers and she seemed really cool. Caitlin, thanks for chatting with us, I hope the book was well received and enjoy Conshohocken.

Thank you to Dr. Brett Neal and the Neal Eye Group for thinking the People of Conshohocken series is kind of cool and sponsoring it.
