Friends of Vernon Park 2015 Annual Report

Dear Friends of Vernon Park,

Vernon Park Bazaar 15


I hope you’ve visited our newly re-opened and fixed up Vernon Park!  There is no substitute for seeing it yourself, watching the children play and adults use the fitness equipment.  Check out the new benches, picnic tables and areas where we can dream of events for next year.

Please take a few minutes and read the Annual Report 15.

We have been particularly blessed this year with the support of our political representatives, community members and volunteers from surrounding educational institutions.

We never take any of the support for granted.  So whether you bought bargains from a vendor, applauded Stars Under the Stars, cleared up leaves, pulled up porcelain berries, bagged trash or sent in a donation, we are very grateful.

Please consider including Friends of Vernon Park in your year-end financial donations by contributing through Paypal on our website: or send a check made payable to Friends of Vernon Park, P. O. Box 48374, Philadelphia, PS 19144.  We welcome contributions large and small.

Join us in 2016.  Do come to our regular meetings usually held on the second Monday of the month from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at the Center in the Park (entrance from the parking lot off Rittenhouse Street).

Please feel free to forward this report to anyone who might be interested.

Best wishes to you all,

Ruth Seeley

President, Friends of Vernon Park
