Dear Volunteers,

    Streetscapes Tree Planting Update - Pics and Thank You!
    Dear Volunteers, Thanks to your great work, West Mount Airy has 20 new trees. Thirty-three volunteers in five planting crews got all the trees in the ground before the rain started around noon. Only one group ran into difficulties, but with tenacity found a spot without boulders for their final tree.

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!

    CIP's Giving Tuesday - It's not too late to donate!
    What is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday was created when two organizations, the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation came together in 2012, about a month before that year's Thanksgiving. Their intention was to set aside a day that was all about celebrating the generosity of giving, a great American tradition.

Deeply Saddened by the news of Dick Wade’s passing . . . and missing his commitment and generosity to Center in the Park and the strong connection we enjoyed with GFS when Dick served as a board member of CIP! With gratitude and condolences . . . http://www.philly.com/philly/obituaries/richard-l-wade-69-germantown-friends-head-of-school-20171116.html

    Richard L. Wade, 69, Germantown Friends head of school
    When Richard L. Wade arrived on the Germantown Friends School campus in 1993, enrollment was down. Administrators had left. The faculty was fragmented. The school faced financial problems. In taking the job as head of school, Mr. Wade, a tall, courtly Southerner who had run the Rippowam Cisqua School in Bedford, N.Y., for the previous decade, assigned himself to guide the Quaker school known as GFS into the 21 st century.

In response to this problem, FOW is launching a pilot program, Little Friends of the Wissahickon, to introduce Philadelphia’s public school kindergartners and first graders to Wissahickon Valley Park and inspire them to explore and experience the wilderness in their own city.
