This Weekend: Clean Up, Bike Registration & Sprung!

Friends & Neighbors, 
Making plans for this Saturday? There's lots to do in and around our neighborhood:
1. Wake up and lend a hand during the Philly Spring Clean Up! Here's a list of all of the blocks participating in South of South. 
2. Bike over to Point Breeze CDC (20th and Federal) and register your bike with the 17th Police District's Bicycle Registry System between 10am-12pm. Our Safety Committee volunteers will be on hand to help you sign up and assign your bike an individual registration number. 
3. Hit South Street West for the Sprung! Springtime Pub Stroll. Participating bars and restaurants will have food & drink specials from 1-7pm. So, treat yourself after a morning of cleaning and biking!

We will be hosting a Bike Registration Event with our friends at Point Breeze CDC on Saturday, April 16th from 10 am to 12 pm to register your bike! Officers from the 17th Police District will be on-hand, as will members of the SOSNA Safety Committee to help you through the process. 
The Philly Spring Clean Up has been postponed until April 16th due to the weather. Our Clean Block Reps will still be cleaning up their respective blocks on either the 9th or the 16th.  Check out all of the blocks participating. The volunteer after party at Carpenter Green will be rescheduled for a later date in May. Instead, all volunteers should head down to South Street West for the Sprung! Pub Crawl after cleaning up on the 16th!
Hit the bars and restaurants of South Street West on Saturday, April 16th for the annual Sprung! Neighborhood Pub Crawl! For all of the info and updates check out the Sprung! Facebook event and get your tickets HERE!
