It's been pretty amazing seeing the community take advantage of Hackett's new playground. We're very grateful to all the neighbors that have not only volunteered their time to help out with watering plants and picking up trash. We're also encouraged by all those that have been keeping an eye on the grounds in general. To help protect this neighborhood resource, we are working with ORCA and the neighboring households to install security cameras on a some of the surrounding homes. You will see new signage in the upcoming weeks posting the schoolyard hours (7AM to 9PM when school is not in session). The new signage will not only post hours, but also clarify and expand some of the schoolyard rules. We're aware that there have been dogs on the grounds and often running off leash on the turf. While we know that the signage near the turf does not explicitly prohibit dogs (although the signage near the play equipment does), please note that dogs are not allowed. This will be clarified with the new signage. In the meantime, please spread the word.

Our friends at Philadelphia Federal Credit Union were named one of the best credit unions in Pennsylvania according to Forbes! Congrats PFCU! forbes.com/sites/kurtbadenhausen/2018/06/28/the-best-banks-and-credit-unions-in-every-state/#383741e84502

    The Best Banks And Credit Unions In Every State
    There were 18,000 commercial banks and savings institutions in the U.S. in the mid-1980s, but 35 years of massive consolidation and nearly 3,000 bank failures have cut the total by 70%. With the proliferation of online banks, it is even more important for local banks to demonstrate their advantages in regards to customer service, accessibility and financial advice.

    Home sweet home - Star news
    By Melissa Komar While libraries are often perceived as quiet places, there's quite a buzz at the Richmond Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia. On Thursday, June 7, a colony of approximately 10,000 honey bees, with one queen, arrived at the Port Richmond library, and was installed in an observation box fitted in a window to the far right of the entrance.
