Hello, tonight my small Yorkie named Josie got loose in the area tonight at about 5. I am out of town and she was staying with a friend. She is black and silver, weighs 15 pounds, is wearing a blue and white sweater, and has a blue harness with her name tag and microchip. If anyone in the community has seen her, she got away near broad and Mifflin and ran towards East Passyunk. I am horribly worried and feel helpless being out of town. If there are any sitings of her, she moves quickly and is probably very scared. Please call me at 914-582-0784.

Newbold CDC shared Brewery ARS's post.

Congratulations, Brewery ARS!

    The 10 Best Brewery Taprooms and Brewpubs (2017)
    It was another banner year for craft beer. As macro breweries continue to acquire new brands, craft breweries are opening at an incredible rate. There are now more than 5,000 craft breweries nationwide, meaning most Americans live within 10 miles of one. As a result we're all spending a lot more time in brewery taprooms and brewpubs.

FoCA is in the middle of its Annual Appeal and we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported us to date and to ask those of you who have supported us in the past, or are potential new supporters, to consider donating to this year's Annual Appeal. http://www.friendsofchesterarthur.org/take-action/ FoCA has set an ambitious goal of raising $20,000 between now and the end of the year, and we need your help to reach that goal! Almost 100% of the funding we raise is invested back into the school to support innovative programming, updates to technology, educational materials, classroom supplies and more - we can't do it without the community supporting our work and so we ask that you please consider donating to FoCA as part of your year-end giving!
