    5 Reasons We Chose Mifflin
    In a neighborhood where over 90% of parents send their kids to private/charter schools, Lynsey and her husband Dan Larson are thrilled to recommend Mifflin. We recently left behind two sets of grandparents and a bursting babysitter Rolodex in our home state of Delaware, and relocated to East Falls.

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.

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.

'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!

(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.

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.
