Beautification and Trees14 Apr 2008 08:29 am

If you’ve been interested in getting a tree in front of your house, please download the tree form and email it back by Saturday April 26th. The trees will be planted this coming Fall, but we need to gather all of the applications now. Read more on the Beautification page >>

Beautification and Cleanup and Event06 Apr 2008 01:14 pm

Thanks to all of you who came out on Saturday for the Philly Spring Cleanup. Over 65 volunteers joined our efforts, along with dozens of other people who cleaned their own stoops and blocks. I lost track of how many bags we collected, but the real proof of our success is how clean our streets are. I hope that the connections we made among our neighbors and the positive energy that was created both continue.

If you would like to get further involved in combatting trash and in promoting recycling, join the Passyunk Square Civic Association Trash and Recycling Committee which meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Police Station at 11th and Wharton at 7pm. Our next meeting is April 21st.

I know that unfortunately some trash bags are still out on corners and I will work with the City and/or Citizens Alliance to get them collected. Please email me at christineknapp@yahoo.com if you see uncollected bags so I can give them a complete list.

Thanks again!

Christine
