SOSNA Dines Out, Tree Tender Training and the Farmer's Market!
Friends & Neighbors,
We're excited to announce that the May edition of SOSNA Dines Out will take place at Thai Square Restaurant! Join us for a 3-course dinner at this new neighborhood favorite! Thai Square opened their doors back in early March, and if you haven't tried it please join us for Dines Out on Tuesday, May 12th at 6:30pm. Tickets are $20 and include a 3-course prix fixe menu with veggie options (don't forget to BYOB)! Grab your tickets before they're gone!
We had an extremely successful street tree planting this April- many thanks to those who volunteered their time to greening the neighborhood! We've received many applications for the fall street tree planting and we'll need some additional tree tenders to help with the planting effort! If you enjoy gardening, have planted with us before or you want to get involved consider signing up for the spring tree tender training with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society! The spring 2015 Tree Tender training is a three-part class on Wednesdays: May 13, May 20 and May 27 from 5:45pm to 9:00pm. Click here to sign up, then put your new-found tree knowledge to good use during future neighborhood plantings!
