Join the Friends of Washington Ave Green Kick Off meeting on November 30, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Southwark House at 101 Ellsworth Ave.

Washington Avenue Green began its life as City Pier 53. This historic pier has recently earned a new lease on life as the City’s first new green public space on the Delaware in decades! Washington Avenue Green, conveniently located along the riverfront recreational trail, also improves local wildlife habitats. Help generate ways to bring people to the park and get involved with this new resource!

It’s time to celebrate the holidays! Start off the holiday season with your neighbors and friends at the PSCA General Meeting on December 7 at 6:30 pm at the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center at Dickinson and Passyunk Avenue. Instead of a meeting we are having a pot luck party and silent auction to raise funds for the PSCA. So bring a neighbor, bring a favorite holiday dish, and come ready to bid on a few great items at our silent auction!
