Parkside Evans Playground added 3 new photos....

Comcast Cares and our Stewardship Office volunteer their Saturday to rake, clean, mulch, remove debris and even donate a picnic table to the facility. Our tennis courts, basketball courts, play areas/sidewalks and sprayground, as well as Fairmount Park trails, have never looked better. If you know how far our facility property extends, you realize how much energy and effort this cleanup took. A HUGE thank you to Comcast!

Wynnefield Branch (Free Library of Philadelph...

We truly were inspired at Wynnefield Library this past Monday night. We welcomed acclaimed author Lorene Cary to read from and discuss her book, "If Sons, Then Heirs." We had a candid and thought-provoking conversation about topics including the realities and significance of lynchings, family traditions that are instilled and passed on through generations, and those that are let go; the effects of the great migration, and the acceptance and recognition of African American Literature. Thanks to Kalela Williams,Director of Neighborhood Library Enrichment Programming for arranging this event; and to our Friends of Wynnefield Library member, Terri Jones, who was our luminous moderator. Special thanks to Ms Lorene Cary for such an enlightening journey into the depths of what truly defines a family.
