Yes, neighbors it’s hard to believe that your civic association is turning two! Thursday September 11th will see the second anniversary of the corporate founding of EPX and to mark the occasion we will be having a combined celebration! Join together with fellow EPX-ers at Le Virtu Restaurante 1927 E. Passyunk Ave. ( for a casual evening of “wining and dining” on the patio, under the stars starting at 7: 00 p.m. – the cover charge will be $20.00 per person. Plan to reserve or buy your tickets at the September 8th General Membership meeting.

BUT, before you wander over to the party, stop by the EPX Corporate office grand opening! The bungalow at 1940 S. 13th street has passed through some minor zoning variance and some major renovations and will open to the public in conjunction with our anniversary. Pop by to check out the renovations, see the art-work and greenery, and the space where most EPX committee meetings will be held and our records will be kept. Senator Fumo should be on hand, with other local dignitaries, to “cut the ribbon” at 6:30 p.m. Come sample some free punch and Italian cookies. So, even if you can’t make the party, stop by for the opening. All are welcomed – EXCELSIOR!

The next Clean-Up is 9th Street (heading south) Saturday, September 20th 10:00 am – approx. 11:30 am.

Meet on the north west corner of 9th and Tasker Streets.
Brooms and gloves will be supplied – just bring yourself and your neighbors and together we will clean the sidewalk and street along 9th Street.

Should the clean-up need to be canceled due to weather an e-mail will be sent and a message posted on the web site early evening of Friday September 19th.
