Philly Cleanup 2014 Photos

First, to those of you who missed our clean up effort on April 5th, I hope you will take a look at the Kelly front yard area where we focused our energies.

A spruce tree, formerly unrecognizable, was saved from vines, trash and general neglect as we pulled out 30 bags of trash and trimmed it into shape.  We all agreed it’s time for the next steps….more planting and better upkeep.

AND, you missed the opportunity to hang out with John B. Kelly III, who showed up unexpectedly to help out!  It was a shot in the arm for all of us to have him and, at the last minute his sister Margaret, joined us, deepening our connections with the family.

Enjoy these photos from the cleanup.
