Kung Hei Fat Choi or Happy Lunar New Year! 

Last month we tried to have our first General Meeting of the year, but the Polar Vortex shut us down. Our three guest speakers were kind enough to re-schedule for this coming Tuesday, February 4th. Our guest speakers, all seemingly with totally different presentations. However, the common thread is betterment of the neighborhood:

Lights and Cameras for the Home

The holiday lights are gone and the ugly snow is making for some dark and dreary streets. That is unless you turn on your porch lights to help illuminate the neighborhood. Statistics show the brighter the neighborhood the less crime is committed. Bill Lutz and Debbie Lewis, who in addition to being great neighbors, are the owners of General3 Electric. If you do not have a porch light but are thinking of getting one, Bill and Debbie will be on hand to offer suggestions. A few stories in the news lately reported how security cameras have help to capture criminals. One such case was the people stealing the Christmas decorations! Again, if you are thinking of buying such a camera Debbie and Bill will offer some guidance.

Public Art Plans for 2014

Representatives from the Mural Arts Program (http://muralarts.org/) will be speaking about several upcoming projects in our neighborhood including plans to revitalize the site of the “The Soul of Philadelphia” mural across the street from Pat’s Steaks on 9th Street. Come hear the details and get more information about the process. In addition, if you have seen Joe Bucherow’s completed Watchtowers on Dickinson between 9th and 10th, be sure to check it out!

Acme Remodeling

Wondering how much longer Acme will be remodeling? Jim Reardon, our friendly store manager, will give us the latest on the progress of the project. From what I hear it is not all about structural change, there will be new products on the shelves as well.

-Pam Zenzola, President
