The Philadelphia Tribute to the Last Waltz, held November 30th at the Trocadero Theatre, was a sold out success. The four producers of the event, Fergus Carey, Bryan Dilworth, Andrew Lipke, and Kevin Hanson gave a $5,300 check to the PSCA Education Committee to contribute to our neighborhood schools. The vast majority of the money will go to benefit the Jackson HOME Band, who performed at the event, with a portion also going to Kirkbride programming.

Beautification and Trees06 Jan 2014 08:56 pm

We know it’s the early days of official winter, but we’re already thinking about the Spring and plans to care for the trees in our neighborhood. If you are already a Tree Tender, or are interested in getting involved in our Pruning Club, let us know at beautifiation@passyunk.org and we’ll keep you posted on our upcoming activities.

If you’d like to learn more about tree care over the winter, PHS is offering two ways to become a certified Tree Tender: an 8 week “Lunch and Learn” series Jan 8- Feburary 26 or two-part regular training on Saturday Jan 25 and Feb. 1. More information and registration details are available at www.pennhort.net/treetenders. PSCA is offering our residents a limited number of scholarships to cover the $25 fee. For more information email us at beautfication@passyunk.org
