We have been working on a draft of our bylaws and articles or incorporation. The most updated versions are on our website and can be accessed at the following links (PDFs). We are hoping to propose a vote to approve the changes at our Oct and December 2022 meetings.
We are very sad to announce the passing of our current Secretary and former VP and President Bruce Butler on January 18, 2022. Bruce was an incredible board member for the FCA dedicating countless hours in service to our neighborhood, which he loved so much. https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/inquirer/name/bruce-butler-obituary?id=32371584
Until further notice all of our meetings will be held virtually via Zoom. Please sign up for newsletter to receive notice of meeting and links to attend. Thank you to all of our supporting neighbors for helping us through the pandemic!
Join the Fairmount Civic Association’s Neighborhood Improvement Committee’s 8th annual Fall Cleanup (9am-noon) and help beautify the neighborhood! Meet at the playground behind Eastern State Penitentiary (22nd and Brown). Sign in, get some snacks/beverages and pick up supplies, including gloves, bags, brooms, and rakes. Brooms and rakes must be returned. Even if you don’t live in Fairmount you can help—cleaning up one area prevents trash from going to others, especially with the Schuylkill River here. Volunteers will receive museum tickets courtesy of Eastern State Penitentiary while supplies last.
