On November 16th, the Frankford community decided to turn the neighborhood green. We had multiple kinds of trees starting from Beautiful birch to pretty peach. We started with 150 trees and we left with zero.
The entire group, named the Friends of Overington Park, would love to thank, TreePhilly for helping us with this spectacular event. In the photo is Ericka. She is one of the nice workers of TreePhilly. So thank you Ericka for the help. We had lots of people smiling and saying ‘what a beautiful event to hold here in the neighborhood and I cannot wait until the next year.
