The holidays are coming to an end – wondering what to do with your Christmas tree? Don’t just toss it out – Treecycle it!
The Passyunk Square Civic Association, Lower Moyamensing Civic Association, Newbold Neighbors Association, and East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association and Town Watch have partnered to host a tree-chipping event to dispose of your live Christmas trees. Drop off your undecorated Christmas tree at Columbus Square Park at the corner of 13th and Reed streets on Saturday, January 10, 2015, between 10 am and 4 pm.
A $5 donation is requested to help pay for the chipping. By chipping the trees ourselves, we will get to keep the mulch for use in our parks!
By request from the community, the event is being held after January 6, “Little Christmas,” so hang on to your tree til then if you can!
Get excited for two holiday events coming up very soon in Passyunk Square!
On December 2 at 6:30 pm we kick off the Holiday Party at Garage (1231 E. Passyunk Ave.)! See details on the invitation and on Facebook. Come out to Garage, bring a dish, bring a friend, or just bring yourself!

Tuesday, May 6, from 6:30 pm to 8 pm at Annunciation BVM Church Hall (10th & Dickinson)
What an exciting time for PSCA! The May 6 election for the Board of Directors has certainly generated a lot of enthusiasm. The nomination process ended on March 28, giving us 14 candidates running for 12 positions! Of those running, 9 are current members and 5 hope to be ‘freshman’ Board members.
Our venue, Annunciation BVM Church hall at 10th and Dickinson, is the perfect size for this event: BIG! The Election Committee has separated the hall into two distinct sections: one for voting and the other for socializing. Stop in just to vote (there will be no regular general meeting), or stay to mingle with your neighbors and enjoy pizza, generously donated by Francoluigi’s (Thank you Frank Borda!)
Excited to hear the results? Stay til 8 pm when the polls close and the Election Committee will count the ballots and announce the results to all present. Can’t stay? Not to worry – results will be posted to our website later the same night.
For information such as voter eligibility, required form of ID, and bios of all the candidates click here.
