A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our supporters for this project, especially the Anonymous donor who gave $750 earlier today to exceed our fundraising goal!! The students and staff of Vare Washington are so grateful for this opportunity!

    Bring Back Our Musical! by Zachary Duberstein
    Prior to the merger of Abigail Vare and George Washington Schools, George Washington was known for putting on amazing musical performances; lighting, elaborate costumes, choreographed dance and song routines, the works! Sadly, due to lack of adequate funding, the school has gone without a musical for several years.

One of Philadelphia’s Finest Recognized for His Work in the Community

Paul Bryson started playing ball at Edward O’Malley Athletic Association, 144 Moore St., at age 5 and coaching at 13. In fact, the whole Bryson clan spent most of its time at the athletic haven.

“It kept the family out of trouble,” the native of the 400 block of Winton Street said. “It was something for us to do in the community.”

As a teen, he refereed hockey at EOM and umpired the summer baseball league at Burke Playground, Second and Jackson streets — in between playing his own hockey, baseball and football games. During the school year, he would try to squeeze in a snooze between school and practice.

With his day job as community relations officer at the 1st District, 2301 S. 24th St., Bryson, who resides on the 2600 block of South Front Street with wife Patty, has sacrificed his vacation time to ensure he rarely missed a game.

“Sometimes I didn’t have a cat nap,” the St. John Neumann High School, 2600 Moore St., and Lincoln Technical Institute grad said. “I’d go right down to football. … I was always on the run from the time I got up to the time I went to bed.”

How Jesus Christ Block Parties help fight Philly’s opioid crisis

Lawler’s twisted journey began in the 1980s when he was a young teenager on the 300-block of Gladstone Street in Whitman, popping Xanax and smoking marijuana. His early rebellion would morph into years of addiction, crime and incarceration.

    How Jesus Christ Block Parties help fight Philly's opioid crisis
    The Dunkin' Donuts at Fifth and Oregon attracts as diverse a clientele as you'll see in Philadelphia. Police officers, men and women in scrubs, a few people in suits and others in clothes ready for the curb stand in line for coffees.
