On Tuesday, January 3, at 6:30pm the Passyunk Square Civic Association will host its monthly general membership meeting at the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center (East Passyunk Avenue and Dickinson Street). Whether you’re celebrating your first or fiftieth New Year as a Passyunk Square resident, make getting involved in your neighborhood one of your goals for 2012. Attending a general membership meeting is a great way to get started. You’ll find out the latest news for what’s going on in the neighborhood, meet some of your fellow Passyunk Square residents and hear from our featured presenter.

For this month we’ll have updates of upcoming zoning committee cases, development projects in the neighborhood, news from the town watch front and more!

From the Better-Late-Than-Never News Desk:

Congratulations to Dan Wallace and Alys Kirsh – two of our volunteers from the November 19th Tree Planting – who each won a pair of tickets to the Philadelphia Flyers vs. Carolina Hurricanes on November 21st at the Wachovia Center. Though the game didn’t quite turn out the way Flyers fans would have wanted it to, Dan and his guest and Alys and her guest had the opportunity to enjoy the spectacle from the cozy confines of the Mayor’s Box.

Special thanks to the City of Philadelphia for providing the Passyunk Square Civic Association with these tickets. The PSCA Board decided the best use of these tickets would be to recognize a couple of its many dedicated volunteers for their hard work. If any more of these great opportunities come our way (Sixers basketball is back, right?) we’ll be on the look out for more great volunteers to share with.

Columbus Square and Trash & Recycling29 Dec 2011 08:30 am

Your Christmas tree has treated you to another great holiday season, don’t return the favor by sending it to rot in some landfill. Treecycle it! On Saturday, January 7th from 10am to 4pm, you can bring your tree to Columbus Square park (corner of 13th and Reed streets) and have it turned into wood chips and mulch that will be used in local parks and gardens.

A $5 donation is suggested to cover the costs of the tree chipping. Please be sure to remove all decorations (they don’t make good mulch). Unfortunately, we can’t take early drop-offs so make your plans now to be there between 10am and 4pm. Please note that the City of Philadelphia does not recycle trees left at the curb.

Do you have a couple hours you can offer to help out with this event? We’re looking for a few good volunteers. Email if you’re interested.
