Friends who have taken their children the redesigned Sister Cities Park on Logan Square say it's one of the best play spots in the city. They love the little pond, and the location in an area that lacks playgrounds.
So why not take the opportunity to check out the park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, July 14, when the Center City District hosts a celebration of wind and water there? Children can decorate kites, craft an oar and race mini-boats.
Here is the press release from the Center City District:
Those of who worked with Sue Snyder weren't surprised that she was part of the team that won the Inquirer's Pulitzer Prize for reporting on violence in Philadelphia public schools. She works harder than almost anyone. In a business where being cranky is a common personality trait, Sue is always a pleasure. Her kind, straightforward manner undoubtedly helps her win sources.
For any parents out there worried that children must be high achievers from the moment they enter preschool, read Sue Snyder's story and calm down.
What follows is a copy of the graduation speech Sue gave not too long ago to the journalism school at her alma mater, Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She is proof that attitude, a strong work ethic and a sense of humor can overcome mediocre SAT scores and the occasional hangover.
