Beautification and Event23 Mar 2010 04:06 pm

Join us on April 10 at 9:00 am at Gold Star Park (on Wharton between 6th and 7th streets) to participate in the 3rd Annual Philly Spring Cleanup! Now that the snow has melted, errant litter is more visible than ever. Let’s give our neighborhood a fresh start by sprucing it up!

Passyunk Square Civic Association will be coordinating several projects during the day:
–       General street sweeping, with a focus on high-traffic areas like the 9th St business corridor
–       Flower planting at Jackson school
–       Tree bed maintenance at Capitolo Playground

In past years, we’ve removed hundreds of bags of litter from our streets, and this year should be no exception. But we can’t do it without you!Please RSVP today by emailing kalabno@gmail.com.  If you have access to a pickup truck or other large vehicle, we could use your help in picking up full bags from volunteers and bringing them back to collection sites at Columbus Square, Capitolo and Gold Star Park.

We look forward to seeing you then!

Logo guidelines. We ask that submissions include the phrase “Passyunk Square Civic Association” as well as the abbreviation “PSCA” within the design. We’d also like three different versions of the logo for use on our three main initiatives: anti-litter, education, and greening. Please send submissions to logo@passyunk.org. Please include your name, your preferred e-mail address, and your website if you have one. We will happily allow multiple submissions.

We ask logos be submitted as scalable vector graphics, EPS or Illustrator file format, and also as JPGs. Kindly outline any fonts.

The entry must be your original design, and not a copy that may be subject to copyright laws. That would be awful.
