On May 6, 2014 from 6:30pm and 8pm, Passyunk Square Civic Association will be having its annual election for the Board of Directors. The election will take place in the meeting space at Annunciation BVM Church Hall at 1511 S. 10th Street. This is the only business on the agenda for the monthly membership meeting so you can come by anytime between 6:30 and 8, cast your vote, and stick around to enjoy refreshments with other members or head home.

All members of the civic association are entitled (and encouraged) to vote for the Board. As a reminder, anyone who lives, owns property, or owns a business between Washington and Tasker, 6th to Broad is considered a member of the Passyunk Square Civic Association.

Voters must verify that they are eligible to vote as members of PSCA. To verify, ONE of the following documents can be used as proof:

  • Voter registration card
  • Executed lease agreement (either for renter or business owner)
  • Deed
  • Valid driver’s license or state-issued ID
  • Utility bill
  • Printout of OPA page
  • Business Privilege License (for business owner)

Voters should be prepared to show one of the above documents at the Election. Members of the Nominating Committee will record that verification so that anyone who votes in this first election will not have to show documentation at future elections.

We have a great slate of nominees to fill the 12 Director positions that are up for election this year. Learn more about our nominees by clicking through this link.

Art Show and Event03 Feb 2014 08:15 pm

On Friday, March 28th 2014, from 7 to 10 PM the Passyunk Square Civic Association will host the 3rd Annual P’unk Square Community Art Show and Auction. The event, which will be held at Annunciation BVM Church hall (10th and Dickinson) will include both an art auction and a raffle.

Artists are asked to donate one or more works of art to the 2014 PSCA Art Auction. All proceeds will go to the PSCA. Artists who donate works for the PSCA Art Auction will also have the opportunity to exhibit and sell additional works with a commission of 25% going to the PSCA. For each work “gifted” to the Auction an artist can enter a sale work; for two Auction works, two sale works and so on.

If you are interested in donating a piece for the event, please click here to submit your piece. All donations of Art to the PSCA are fully tax deductible and the PSCA will provide documentation of any donated art that sells at the auction.

Last year we had over 200 persons in attendance. This show and auction gives artists from our area significant exposure. In addition, this year artists are given the opportunity to sell their works to our guests. We hope to include you in this exciting event.

10PSCA_3This year, the Passyunk Square Civic Association (PSCA) is honored to be celebrating our 10th anniversary! It’s hard to believe that ten years have gone by, and yet there are so many accomplishments worth celebrating.

Since its inception, PSCA has pursued every opportunity to improve our already great neighborhood. This includes taking on everything from zoning, town watch, litter clean-ups, tree plantings, community gardening, school engagement, and of course hosting many events that bring neighbors together. Through it all, our mission of “neighbors helping neighbors” has led our work to make Passyunk Square the best neighborhood in Philadelphia.

We invite you to celebrate with us at our 10th Anniversary event on Tuesday, December 3rd at 7:00 p.m. at Annunciation BVM Church Hall at 10th and Dickinson streets. It promises to be a fun night of food, drink, memories and celebrations. Please RSVP at https://psca10th.eventbrite.com/.

As we head into the cold weather season, PSCA will be collecting winter clothing and accessories for children in the neighborhood. Please bring a new or like new children’s sized coat, cat, scarf, or gloves to the party to make the season warmer for us all.

Thanks for all you have done to help support PSCA over the years, and we look forward to celebrating with you!

Welcome Back! Summer is officially over! For many the summer is a time to slow down, but not for the Board of the PSCA. Come hear our plans for the year ahead at our September General Meeting. Also on hand will be our Education Chair Tom Wyatt giving us a report on the activities of this enthusiastic committee. And our 2013 Home Tour Chairs, Jen Barr and Caroline New, will talk about our favorite event of the year coming up on October 12.

Our Guest Speaker: Donna Carney is the Director of the Citizen’s Planning Institute. The focus of the Institute is to educate citizens about the role good planning and implementation play in helping to create communities of lasting value. The educational sessions provided through the Institute are designed to educate residents active in civic organizations, about planning, zoning, and development issues so that they can be more effective in their own communities.

Our Fall Supply Drive is going on now through September 8th and we will be accepting donations at our General Meeting! Read more about our Supply Drive here. If you can’t make it to our General Meeting tonight, we have a box at the entrance and exit of ACME (Reed and Passyunk).
