Beautification and Trees25 Oct 2012 12:11 pm

 

Our semiannual Street Tree Planting is being held on Saturday, November 10th at Capitolo Playground at 9th and Federal Streets.  This Fall’s event is going to be extra special, as the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will be culminating their “Home Runs For Trees” partnership with the Phillies prior to our event!  The Phillie Phanatic will be on hand, as well as some guest speakers that have yet to be named, but we really want our community to come out in full force to greet everyone and, afterwards, to help us plant 50 trees throughout the neighborhood!  Bring a camera, some gloves, and a shovel, and the faster we get the trees in the ground, the sooner we can celebrate afterwards! 

Speakers go on around 9:30am, we’ll start planting around 10am, and with enough people, we should be done around 1pm to enjoy food and drink specials at a nearby eatery to be determined soon.  Stay tuned for more details, but for now, save the date and tell your friends!!

Please email us at beautification@passyunk.org to let us know if you’ll be able to volunteer at the event.  It’s going to be a great day!
