We'll have face painting, actives with the YMCA, a free Yoga Class with Raja Yoga, weaving with the Ready to Hand weaving studio, a DJ, and raffles galore! SOSNA be raffling off a 20" bicycle, and Fireside Camp Supply will be raffling off a weekend camping rental for two! All you have to do is sign up and be present to win! (For the full activities schedule, click here.) We'll be joined by the Igloo, Los Camaradas, Ultimo and Poi Dog Philly, just to name a few. Bring your own picnic or grab some snacks while you're there! 
We're also taking this opportunity to recognize some outstanding members of our community. We'll be announcing the winners of the 2015 Streetscape Competition and the winner of the SOSNA Higher Education Scholarship! Please join us on July 18th at Julian Abele to have some fun, grab a bite, meet your neighbors and congratulate our winners!
We're looking for a few volunteers to help out during the event, too. If you're able to lend a hand during the day, or setting up / cleaning up, please respond to this email for more details and to sign up. SOSNA reps get special SOSNA gear!
