Fall Cleanup – Saturday, October 18th, 9am-12pm

Come out and get a little exercise while making the neighborhood a cleaner place. It is also a great opportunity to meet and socialize with your neighbors!

We are meeting at 9am Saturday, October 18th at Huntingdon and Thompson Streets (behind Wawa and Rite Aid). There will be a Volunteer Appreciation BBQ to follow at the Philadelphia Brewing Company (Frankford Ave. and Hagert St.) You will receive your free admission ticket at the cleanup.

We are excited to see you!

Olde Rich­mond Civic As­so­ci­ation has a new board and big plans for the neigh­bor­hood.

On Tues­day, Sept. 9, the group held a “Meet the Neigh­bors” event at Mem­ph­is Tap on Mem­ph­is and E. Cum­ber­land streets in an at­tempt to in­crease com­munity en­gage­ment with the group and dis­cuss some of its forth­com­ing ini­ti­at­ives. About a dozen mem­bers con­vened for drinks and con­ver­sa­tion about the fu­ture of the area bordered by the Delaware River to the east, Trenton Av­en­ue to the west, the Con­rail Rail­road lines near Le­high Av­en­ue to the north and E. York Street to the south.
