SAVE THE DATE! Thursday, May 9th from 6-9 p.m. come and join your EPX neighbors at Rita’s Water-Ice on East Passyunk Avenue! Invite everyone you know because the more water-ice, and other goodies, we eat the more EPX gets as a donation from Rita’s!!! We are promised a beautiful evening of spring weather and lots of fun as the entire ‘hood (plus our family and friends) descends on Rita’s. Show your EPX Spirit by bringing a crowd and remember there are plenty of fat-free and sugar free options as well.  Who knows you might even spy a familiar EPX Co-Chair scooping your favorite treat!!!
