Bonnie Nadley Silvestri

Bonnie Nadley Silvestri was born in Philadelphia and raised in the West Oak Lane section of the city.

Bonnie worked with Special Education for thirty years from 1978 to 2008. She helped children and teenagers who had various mental and physical disabilities. Her career was very challenging; yet very rewarding to her. She would often teach the students how to dance, and they loved it!

In September of 2010, she became the first Associate Member of this organization immediately after the new category was approved.

Bonnie was a dancer on the TV show from Reading, PA called "The BCTV Dance Party." (Berks County Television). She danced on the show from 2010 to 2013.

Bonnie is presently the Fan Club President for "The Dovells." Whenever possible, she joins The Dovells on stage to do the Bristol Stomp with them. They gave her the nickname "Bristol Stompin' Bonnie."

She is also the President of the "Larry Chance and The Earls Fan Club" and is an Administrator of the "Larry Chance and The Earls Fan Club Page" on Facebook.

Bonnie and her husband, Joe, reside in Delaware County. They are the proud parents and grandparents of two sons and four grandchildren.
