THIS NEWS, FOR A QUALITY OF LIFE POST, IS HOPELESSLY OUT OF DATE, BUT I KNOW THAT ALL OF THE CIVIC ASSOCIATIONS SEND OUT REGULAR EMAIL BLAST RE: CRIME IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD; HELPING TO BEAUTIFY CERTAIN AREAS, ETC.
Live in beautiful Society Hill? Well the Society Hill Civic Association wants to help make the neighborhood even more beautiful by partially paying you back for home improvements via an initiative called “Fix the Brix.” To quote: “SHCA will reimburse to any Society Hill homeowner 40% up to $300 of the cost of leveling their front sidewalk by a qualified mason. For more information, or to obtain a suggested list of masons, please contact: Martha Levine at email@example.com, 215-629-0727, or Frank Signorello at firstname.lastname@example.org.” I’d settle for our landlord consistently having the heat and hot water running but, then again, I don’t live in Society Hill.
