Thanks so much to everyone who participated in our Special NUT Day on 11/21! We raised $240 for the North Light Community Center!
Thank you, too, to the Wissahickon Sustainability Council and the volunteers who participated in a school grounds clean-up day last month! They weeded, raked, picked up trash, and built a new bench for the front of school!
Congrats to the CW Choir for their perfomance in the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade! They were awesome!
