June Meetings This Week **TIME TO VOTE!** General Meeting - Eager to see YOU! THIS IS A VOTING MEETING* at BuLogics on Midvale Thursday, June 21 6:30 pm Social 7pm Agenda Review Zoning Meeting Notes from Tonight's Meeting (Anticipated Agenda Below) 8pm Adjourn to the Beer Garden *Please note: this meeting will provide the necessary information for our democratic organization to vote on refusals by L&I. This is why our organization, East Falls Forward, exists. We will make information available via email, but here is your opportunity to be informed LIVE! Zoning Meeting Wednesday, June 20, 7 pm Tuttleman Auditorium Jefferson/Philadelpia University School House Lane & Vaux St (This is a new venue.) AGENDA ITEMS INCL: 1) The legalization of a long existing multifamily building (four units) located at 3502 Ainslie Street. There are four units in the property. One apartment on the first floor, two on the second, and one on the third. The building is configured as a four family dwelling, each unit with kitchens, bathrooms and sleeping areas in each apartment. 2) Penn Charter's baseball field project will be discussed as they have received a refusal from the City and seek a variance in order to initiate construction sooner than later. This project includes the demolition of the former JEVs property located just past Fox Lane off School House Lane (SHL) on the Wissahickon side of SHL and the conversion of that area plus part of the existing athletic fields into a new ballfield as well as parking. We reviewed detailed information on the project at our May Meeting and can review again should it be desired.

This Old Barn

A charming piece of East Falls history gets a facelift as we dig into the property's storied past. 

    This Old Barn
    This historic barn on JeffU's campus goes "topless" for the next few weeks as it undergoes $300k+ in upgrades, including repointed walls, new rafters, and a new roof. The barn will still need further improvements before it's fully restored, but this first phase is a big step towards preserving this unique structure from the early 19th century.

    Butterflies of Love
    Neighbors from East Falls, Manayunk, Roxborough - and all over NW Philly - came out for VNA Hospice of Philadelphia's 8th Annual Butterfly Release and Community Celebration of Life.

Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge

Imagine all the people, sharing all the world. 

    Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge
    The colorful flags seen recently on the Falls Bridge aren't mere decoration, but an ancient Buddhist tradition for invoking peace, compassion and harmony. While associated today with Tibetan Buddhists, the practice of printing prayers on cloth flags has its roots in India.

    How accessible are we here in the Falls? Daniella Slon's very personal assessment of local establishments - and the importance of including everyone. Last fall, I heard about a book club meeting being held at the Wissahickon Brewing Company. I love books and enjoy meeting like-minded people, so I signed up.

Fatherless Father’s Day

Of memories and moving on: how our fathers continue to inspire us even after they've gone. 

    Fatherless Father's Day
    (Original post 6/5/18 on authorlarrybenjamin.blogspot.com) I remember the accident as if it was yesterday. I had been living in Washington, D.C. for three years. That particular morning, a Saturday, I was running late for work. It was a gray, wet morning at the edge of Winter.

The rooftop at Falls Center jives and swings with these Philly cats from a bygone generation. Meet Drew Nugent & The Midnight Society.

    Drew Nugent & the Midnight Society sets a magical mood this Sunday at the Top of the Falls. "This old music really does something to you, " he told us, "It's pretty much indescribable." A vintage jazz band with style and swagger, the guys play spirited Hot Jazz that will take you back to the days of vaudeville and Old Timey radio.
