Perfect weather with a gentle breeze made our park feel like it was made to host such crowd-pleasing entertainment.
Next week, an especially family friendly concert meant to have the kids up and dancing - Music with Gina.

The first Thursday evening of June, we inaugurated our new Performing Arts Series at Ned Wolf Park. Although the crowd was slow to build, there was an excellent turnout with 60 to 70 adults plus dozens of young children enjow the show Special thanks to Larry Freedman for initiating and cordinating the acts each week in June, and hopefully through the entire summer.
Come by next Thursday for music by Gilmour & Fogarty.

This unfunded program will be an experiment to see if our Mt. Airy Community will come out to enjoy some music or other programming. By passing a basket for donations, all contributions go directly to the performer(s).
Organizer and neighbor Larry Freedman@comcast.net hopes to extend the performances through the summer if the series builds momentum with some good, supportive audiences attending.
He hopes to provide a diverse mix of music and perhaps other performances (poetry reading? magicians? dance?).
So, come early for a place on a bench, or bring a chair, a cushion for the stone wall, or a blanket for the lawn. And don't forget a bit of cash to say thank you to our performers!
JUNE 7 - Raji Malik and Friends will perform acoustic pop with an East Asian flair.
JUNE 14 - Lindsay Gilmour & Jim Fogarty
Acoustic Folk, Pop, Swing and Twang ...original and covers... from two accomplished, well-respected veterans of the music scene from Philly to New Zealand.

The PLANT SALE:
"Will it be held on Saturday or Sunday?"
you may be wondering.
WE ARE TOO!
Because weather forecasts tend to catastrophize precipitation, we will wait until early morning on May 19th to make our final decision. Check back to this website on Sat. after 8 am so you can know for sure if we need to postpone until Sunday.
Gardeners typically are happy to select plants in a drizzle or light rain sprinkle. And it we will proceed on Saturday unless it seems sure that umbrellas needed.
Thanks for bearing with us!

Earth Day, April 22, 2018, was a perfect time to do some digging to help educate gardening beginners by unearthing some plants and rinsing off the soil. Eric Sternfels led a Weavers Way sponsored Workshop - free to members - to shed some light on the practice of dividing perennial plants.
Eric contends that it's less unnerving to slice through a seemingly healthy plant when you understand the underground structures which deliver water and nutrients. In early Spring, most divisions not only survive, but they thrive.
