So let’s gather at PLENTY 1710 E. Passyunk Avenue for lite hors d’oeuvres and complimentary wine courtesy of EPX…great conversations, assured!!!

tree plantingPlease join the EPX Beautification/Environment Committee on Saturday, April 16th in planting dozens of street trees in our neighborhood.We will meet at 8:30 am at South Philly High School parking lot (on South Broad Street) where we will organize into teams and then disperse to tree planting locations. The planting should take approximately 3-4 hours.

We will provide a light breakfast and all the tools required (including tree specialists) to get these trees in the ground.

We still need another 20 volunteers, please join us for EPX’s semi-annual community tree planting event. After the planting join your neighbors and have a few drinks and some great Tex-Mex food specials at Adobe Cafe 1919 E. Passyunk Ave!

This planting will be organized in coordination with four other adjacent civic associations, who are combining resources to plant over one hundred trees throughout South Philly.

Please join your neighbors and friends for a presentation by SEPTA Constituent Relations Coordinator for Government Affairs, Wendy Green-Harvey. Ms. Green-Harvey will speak to the Board and members of EPX  on Monday March 7th at our General Membership Meeting. Please plan to attend and hear news regarding the Number 47 transit line, possible return of SEPTA trolley services to South Philadelphia and the “wish-list” for renovations to the SEPTA Substation at 13th & Mifflin!



Come join the Board and members of EPX as they present A Winter REVUE: an evening of comedy and song.

Acts including mellow music to soothe you while you settle into a cabaret setting and enjoy light fare and libations.  The hilarious antics of a well-known local comedy troop are likely to follow, perhaps the hipster sounds of a very hot young guitar hero and friend, four-piece jazz quartet is planned…and maybe the night will culminate in “Show Stoppers Style” as a certain EPX Co-Chair belts out a few show-tunes and ballads!  MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW!
