Well it turns out that 95 people showed up on Saturday June 9th to help us celebrate our greening success stories. The band was wonderful, the weather perfect, the food was good, and the company beyond compare. The salsa contest was hot and heavy. There were 9 entries. While the judges sampled the contestants fretted. Finally the winners were announced, first place, Jason Dawkins, from councilwoman’s Quinones Sanchez office, second place was Marilyn Funk, and third place was Nona Bloom. Everyone had some laughs and a good time. A fierce competition is developing for next year.
I’d like to thank everyone who pitched in to make the day a big success, PHS, FHS Junior ROTC, Americorp, Epic Stakeholders, Senators Tartaglione and Payton, Councilwoman Maria Quinones Sanchez, Frankford Garden Club members, FOOP members and the Frankford community. Like most things that turn out well, it takes a lot of dedicated hard work to pull it off, and our group really shined on this day.
Thank you for coming out to Overington park and kicking off Summer 2012! Hope to see you in the park, Diane Kunze, President, Friends of Overington Park
