The key word here is merged. In the 1970's the parent branch was Branch 2812, made up of the Upper Darby, Havertown, Darby, Collingdale and Devon Post Offices.
Through the efforts of branch President Mario :Tabby: Taraborrelli and Director of Education John "Lew" Faber, merger talks began with the other area branches and as a
result, through the years and three more Presidents, Neil McGlade, Don Coughlin, James W. McCullough, Rhonda Massari our current President, what was Branch 2812 Upper
Darby grew to become branch 725 SE PA MERGED.
The senior office in our branch is the West Chester Post Office, its original Charter dates back to January, 1900, and it is from this Charter we celebrate our first hundred years.
Along with President Rhonda Massari our current Executive Board consists of Vice President Les Dillman, Director of Education Joe Pease, Treasurer Eric Jackson, Recording
Secretary Rick Murphy, Financial Secretary Beth Lloyd, Director of Health Benefits and MBA Gerry Gallagher, Director of Retirees Andy Kearney, Sergeant At Arms Tommy
Mullin, and Trustees William Mellon, Colleen Haynes and Barbara Kearney.
Our branch is now the fourth largest in Pennsylvania ( thanks to the vision of President Emeritus Don Coughlin ) and represents almost 1200 members from the follwing post
offices: Ardmore, Bala Cynwyd - Joe Pease, Broomall - Anthony Talon, Bryn Mawr - , Clifton Heights - Colleen Haynes , Coatesville - Keith Bailey, Chester - Dan Magee,
Darby-Maureen Acquarola, Gladwyne - , Glenolden / Folsom - Andy Kearney, Havertown / Wynnewood- Karen McPoyle, Kennett Square - Edward Donahue, Linwood / Marcus

As a result of our mergers with other branches, we have been able to maintain a full-time President and in conjunction with the NALC Business Agents, train over 13 advocates
to aid in facilitating the grievance process in our branch and other branches as well.
