Wheel Big Winner

Possibly our favorite news of all year: a friend in our condo complex won almost $75k on Wheel of Fortune this October!

    Wheel Big Winner
    Possibly our favorite news of all year: a friend in our condo complex won almost $75k on Wheel of Fortune this October! Cori Frede didn't say a peep to us about applying, auditioning, flying out there... Nothing. We ran into her one morning walking her little white dog Benny as usual, except she looked like she was about to burst.

'Twas the night before the Thanksgiving Feast when all through the halls, the teachers were busy preparing a feast in East Falls. The places were set at the tables with care in hopes that some goodies soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds; while visions of turkeys danced in their heads. 🦃❤️ The tables endlessly line the halls at Mifflin tonight! Ms.Yarnall and the teachers will be cooking all evening. The deserving students of Mifflin will eat like kings and queens tomorrow. We're giving thanks for these wonderful teachers, staff, and volunteers!

    For at least a year, schools across the country have been creating share tables to save food from being thrown away. The programs end up reducing waste and also help feed hungry kids.

(Take Another) Little Piece of Our Past

As new construction goes up, older buildings come down. What can Fallsers do to save our architectural legacy? 

    (Take Another) Little Piece of Our Past
    East Falls and Allegheny West lost more than lovely architecture last month: the old "Catifsh Café" had been a favorite meeting place for folks from both neighborhoods since it was built in 1875. Back in the 80's/90's, it was famous for big, juicy burgers and the occasional Charles Barkley sighting.

Reaching Out to Little Friends

Philadelphia has one of the greatest park systems in the U.S., and yet many of our residents are either unaware of or disconnected from our public green spaces. 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.

Look what we stumbled upon from 2011! Ms.Yarnall has been organizing the Thanksgiving Feast for years. We are so grateful for her and the entire crew at Mifflin! https://whyy.org/articles/mifflin-thanksgiving/

    A Thanksgiving tradition continues at Mifflin Elementary : WHYY
    Students at Thomas Mifflin Elementary School in East Falls had a feast to rival the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock on Tuesday afternoon. Sitting at long tables in the hallway outside of their classrooms, students in kindergarten through fourth grade ate turkey with all the trimmings for the school's annual Thanksgiving feast.

Tapping Out

Falls Taproom has closed and the neighborhood is bummed. (But not, evidently, all that surprised.)

    Tapping Out
    After more than a decade on Midvale - and months of online debate - this cozy bar/restaurant shuttered its doors last October. Co-owner Jess Mellen-Graaf's poignant Facebook 10/16 post followed soon after: Last call: I started working here when I was 23. It was my first job in Philadelphia.

Keep Turkey Day from Going to the Dogs

Counter surfing, scrap snatching, and other canine tricks to look out for at Thanksgiving.

    Keep Turkey Day from Going to the Dogs
    Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year but it poses some challenges for dog owners. During the holidays food is everywhere, just tempting your dog to counter surf and feed himself. Make sure all food is pushed back away from the counter's edge, out of the reach of your dog.
