Soda Tax Victory!

 

Friends of Clark Park are thrilled about City Council’s decision to pass the soda tax this week. In addition to providing funds for a universal pre-K program, the tax will bring in badly-needed revenue for Philadelphia’s parks, recreation centers, and libraries – to the tune of $300 million dollars!

Friends of Clark Park would like to thank the Council members who voted in support of the bill, including our very own Jannie Blackwell, plus at-large members Blondell Reynolds Brown, Allan Domb, Derek Green, Bill Greenlee, and Helen Gym. Thank you for standing up for Philadelphia’s underfunded parks!

Park Parties Despite the Rain

 

DSCF2941 (1)Wet weather could not dampen the enthusiasm of park-lovers and beer-drinkers last weekend, as the Friends of Clark Park held their annual Party in the Park.  Despite the occasionally inclement weather, bands played, beers were sipped, and memberships were renewed.  Thanks to all who made this event possible!
