Fun Times at the Fall Festival

Captain Hooven guesses the number of cheese balls in the bottle at CCRA table at Schuylkill River Park Fall Festival
Thank you to all who came out to the Fall Festival last Saturday. Many stopped by our table to discuss the issues going on in the neighborhood with Captain Hooven of the 9th District. Captain Hooven reported that the thief who had been actively breaking into residences in the neighborhood had been apprehended, so that particular issue should be addressed for now.
Our cheese ball contest. was a big hit--over 50 people entered to play!  One little girl guessed 16 cheese balls were in the container--when asked by one of our board members why she guessed 16, she responded that 16 was as high as she could count!  (The winning number was 740--she had a way to go!)
We hope you enjoyed meeting and talking with our CCRA volunteers and we look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Dedication of Convergence Mural
Tuesday, October 29, 1-2 PM
Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk, along the banks of the Schuylkill River just north of South Street Bridge
Mural Arts Philadelphia dedicates Convergence on the facade of the AT&T building by noted Philadelphia artist Rebecca Rutstein.This mural soars above the Schuylkill River and the popular Schuylkill Banks multi-use trail. The mural features a vibrant geometric design at the intersection of art, science, and technology and is Rutstein's first mural. The team of muralists painted the side of the building while suspended in the air on a swing stage.  The mural is located on the AT&T building, at South Street and the Schuylkill Banks, but the location above is the best location for a photo opportunity to see the installation.
