Our Holiday Parade is THIS Saturday! Families line Germantown Avenue from Rex Avenue to Southampton Avenue (Market at the Fareway) to wave to the marchers in our Annual Chestnut Hill Community Holiday Parade! Last year we had 21 groups participate including Wyndmoor Hose #1 – who brought our most important guest …Santa Claus. Enjoy hot chocolate by Poppy's Cafe and mini Cinnamon buns (may contain nuts) by Barry's Buns; caroling, music and fun at the Market at the Fareway. Santa will pose for photos with the children at the end of the parade, bring your little ones and your camera :)

Mark your calendars for the 29th annual Landscape Design Symposium at Montgomery County Community College! This two-day symposium on January 11th and 12th explores a core challenge of contemporary landscape design: blending plants, wildlife, and people in spaces that advance ecological function and are enjoyable to be in. While the destination is clear, the route is complex and ill-defined or nonexistent. Learn from real world experiences of a select group of landscape architects and designers who are successfully navigating this challenge. For more information and to register: http://bit.ly/2Ab5HC0.

On Tuesday 12/5/17, The Committee on Rules of City Council will hold a Public Hearing at 10:00 AM in City Hall, Room 400, to hear testimony on Bill 17082. This is the much anticipated Ordinance to establish a temporary Demolition Moratorium (entitled 'Historical Preservation') with respect to properties in the area of Ridge Ave. between Wissahickon Creek and Northwestern Ave. Written testimony from the 21st Ward RCO's (Registered Community Organizations) will be entered into the record and we expect two representatives from our groups will be permitted to speak. HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT! All you have to do is attend! We want to fill the seats! Your attendance will speak volumes to City officials. Councilman Jones has walked along The Ridge with RCO representatives and understands our concerns. We are most grateful to him and his staff for drafting this ordinance. See you there!
