Gold Star Park03 Jun 2012 01:55 pm

Thursday, June 14 7pm – the first of 3 events this summer!

Music in the Park is BACK!  Performing in Gold Star Park will be Fisher & Maher (www.fishermaher.com). This duet has been providing entertainment throughout the Philadelphia area for over 30 years with their unique adaptation of traditional Irish music.  Although the music has its Irish roots, don’t let the word traditional fool you; their performance is anything but.  With an emphasis on audience participation, Danny Fisher and Andy Maher gear their presentation toward getting the crowd up singing and stomping their feet!

The South Philly Food Co-op will also be on hand conducting a seedling workshop activity, distributing information about the Co-op, answering questions, handing out membership applications, and accepting equity payments and new member-owners.

ACME Parking Lot

PSCA announces its 2nd Electronic Waste Collection Event in the ACME parking lot at East Passyunk Avenue and Reed St. Our first event was so successful that we’re having another! We have partnered with eForce Compliance, Philadelphia’s only R2 certified e-waste recycler, to give you another opportunity to responsibly recycle obsolete electronics.

Residents are encouraged to bring “anything with a plug.” All household electronics including computers, printers, microwaves, air-conditioners, metals and small appliances will be accepted. Please visit www.eforcecompliance.com for more information on accepted items.

We will provide a pick-up service for those residents that need assistance in transporting items to the ACME parking lot. Please email trash@passyunk.org by 6/20 if transportation assistance is needed.

This is your opportunity to clean out drawers, closets and basements, so please spread the word to friends and neighbors and join us for this great event.
