Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credits from Father Joe Campellone at Father Judge High School

Sent: Wednesday, August 29, 2012 11:14 AM
Subject: Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credits

Dear Judge Community,
 
As many of you have read or heard, the PA House of Representatives passed a Bill which will allocate $50 million for Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credits (OSTC). I am asking the entire Judge Community to help me find businesses or corporations to participate in this new tax credit program. Please go to www.newpa.com and click on the link on the right hand side for OSTC. We only have a 3 week window to try and capitalize on this scholarship program for Judge students.
 
If you work for a corporation or business, please inform your CFO or President about the OSTC Program. If you can give me names of 5 companies before September 10, I will call them personally and explain. If you need more information after going on the website www.newpa.com, please call me. Remember, just like the EITC Program we will go through the Henkels Foundation. This is an urgent request to help keep our school strong, so families can afford a great high school experience at Judge.
 
Enjoy your Labor Day weekend,
Fr. Joe

                                                          Sports/Activity Program for Children with Special Needs
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                                                                                                                 
To Whom It May Concern,
                Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Cyndi Hinchey. I am Founder and Director of the Holy Terrors STARS. We are a non Profit (id # 232651702) sports/activity program for children with special needs. We provide free activities, snacks and drinks for our STARS children; we do this because our families already have the extra expenses that come with having a child with special needs. STARS provide the kids with fun activities and games (designed for their special needs) that typical kids have, but without having another expense added to an already overburdened family budget. In order to provide these services we rely heavily on fundraisers and the generosity and caring of people and businesses like yours.
On Saturday October  20, 2012 we are hosting our 2nd Annual Strikes for STARS bowling event at Thunderbird Lanes located at 3081 Holme Ave., Philadelphia Pa 19136. We are looking for sponsors as well as items needed to help run a successful event. Listed below are the items that we need help with:
•              Sponsoring a lane: $70 per lane. There are 36 lanes that are in need of sponsoring. All that sponsor a lane will have a sign over the lane or lanes sponsored as well as advertised on a handout that we give to all our guests the night of the event. If you are interested in sponsoring a lane please fill out the attached lane sponsor sheet and send it back with a check or money order payable to Holy Terrors STARS.
•              Chinese Auction: Baskets filled with products, gift cards for services or merchandise, sports paraphernalia
•              Raffle items: Big ticket items to be raffled off (iPod, Game system, TV)
•              General: Food, Beverages ,Beer, paper products
I would like to take this time to thank you for your time and consideration and if there is anything you would be able to help us out with I would GREATLY APPRECIATE it! Enclosed you will find a lane sponsor sheet as well as a copy of our flyer.
Sincerely,
Cyndi Hinchey
Founder and Director

Mayfair Memorial Playground Birthday Spooktacular Planning Meeting




      Thursday September 13, 2012
      5:30 PM
      Mayfair Community Center - 2990 St. Vincent Street




      Hello to our Wonderful Volunteers,

      We are fast approaching our first birthday of our new playground on Saturday, October 27th. We are currently in the brainstorming stages and we would love for your help. We will have a meeting on Thursday, September 13th at 5:30 pm at the Perzel Community Center next to Mayfair School.

      This is what we are thinking so far for our celebration: Fall/Halloween Theme. Invite children to wear costumes and trick or treat through the playground and in the parking lot behind.
       (it will be closed from cars) We need more ideas....games and activities for the children to do. We are hoping local businesses and organizations will like to participate, share their own information but must have candy to give out to the kids.

      A birthday cake!!! Costume contest....decorate pumpkins (as long we are can get them donated or cheap), corn maze, hay bale maze

      We hope you can join us on the 13th to plan for our celebration. Please let me know if you can make it. If you cannot but still want to help we would love to have you.

      Please feel free to pass on this email to anyone who might be interested in helping us celebrate our beloved playground that we have built together for our children and our community.

      Sincerely,

      Dana Lambie
      co-chairperson

ZONING: Request for Continuance/Potential Opposition Re: 2842 St. Vincent Street


***TEXT OF LETTER***

Ms. Lynette Brown-Sow
Chairperson
Zoning Board of Adjustment
Municipal Services Building
1401 John F. Kennedy Blvd.
Philadelphia, PA 19102

Re: Appeal for One (1) Certificate, 2842 Saint Vincent Street (thru to Brous Avenue) (Space A4)
Cal. No.: 18544 Appl. No.: 414126 Date & Time: Wed., Aug. 15th, 2012, 2:00 p.m. Case No.: 5A
Owner: RK Realty and Associates Applicant: Charlie Ly T P Work Inc Zon. Class.: C-7 Commercial

Dear Ms. Brown-Sow:

Please accept this letter on behalf of the Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”) which represents the neighbors of the Mayfair Community. In reviewing the Zoning Board of Adjustment’s Notice, the Applicant/Owner proposes:
“Certificate For Take Out Restaurant In Space A4 With All Other Uses As Previously Approved.”(Fast Track)”

We ask that the Zoning Board of Adjustment grant a CONTINUANCE for this Case, and allow the Neighbors, the Mayfair Civic Association, and the Mayfair Business Association to meet with the Applicant/Owner to discuss their Proposed Certificate. The Same Property was listed as the Proposer for One (1) Use Variance, and Three (3) Certificates over Two (2) Years ago.

In the Unfortunate Event that the Applicant/Owner denies our REQUEST for a CONTINUANCE,
we are OPPOSED to this Zoning Application/Certificate, due to numerous uncertainties with this Existing Supermarket.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either of us at the numbers below.

Very Truly Yours,
Joseph J. DeFelice, Esq.                         Peter J. McDermott

Dear Mr. McDermott:

The Philadelphia City Planning Commission has received your application to become a Registered Community Organization (RCO).  We are pleased to inform you that your application is approved.  Your organization will be listed as a Local RCO.

Your RCO's boundaries and contact information will be shown both on a map and list that will appear on a public website created by the City.  The City Planning Commission website will link to the RCO list.  In addition, the City's zoning map will include this information.  The website will be operational by August 22nd when RCOs officially take effect with the new zoning code.

In order to retain RCO status, organizations will need to submit a renewal application each year in June.  PCPC will send you a renewal application several weeks in advance of the renewal period.  There is no cost to renew your RCO status.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.  You can contact your community planner or myself (see  my contact information below).  Thank you for participating in the new RCO program.  

Richard Redding
RCO Registrar

ZONING DECISION - 3359 BRIGHTON ST (OPPOSED)




***TEXT OF LETTER***
Re: OPPOSITION for One (1) Use Variance for 3359 Brighton Street (Northwest Corner at Crispin Street)
Cal. No.: 17828 Appl. No.: 397241 Date & Time: Tues., August 14th, 2012, 9:30 a.m. Case No.: 11A
Owner: Ana M Salazar Applicant: Beditza Cadillo Zon. Class.: R-9A Residential

Dear Ms. Brown-Sow:

Please accept this letter on behalf of the Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”) which represents the neighbors of the Mayfair Community. In reviewing the Zoning Board of Adjustment’s Notice, the Applicant/Owner proposes:

“Permit for a Barber Shop with an Accessory Sign as Permitted in C-1 Commercial on the First (1st)
Floor in the Same Building with an Existing Two (2) Family Dwelling Above.”
We ask that the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) DENY this Use Variance. Unanimously, all of the Neighbors and the Mayfair Civic Association voted to OPPOSE this Application. Neighbors also circulate a Petition for Signatures of those Opposed to this Use Variance. This property is already a Duplex, exceeding its planned zoning of R-9A. Most of our neighborhood was re-zoned from R-9 Residential to R-9A Residential, to reduce density, and promote Single Family Residency. This property, 3359 Brighton, was included in that re-zoning.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either of us at the numbers below.

Statement on the Recent Pool Slashings in the Neighborhood

Mayfair Civic Association Statement on the Recent Pool Slashings in the Neighborhood

It is rather unfortunate that someone would enter onto the property of another and vandalize their property. We do not condone this type of behavior either as an act of intimidation or as an act of senseless vandalism. The Mayfair Town Watch will be in the area and are cognizant of the issue. We ask any neighbor that sees suspicious activity to, not approach the individual but rather, immediately contact the 15th Police District.

Nevertheless, if you, as a neighborhood resident, feel that your best option for beating the heat in the summertime is a pool on your front lawn, we ask that you do so responsibly and follow all City Rules and regulations.

In response to numerous complaints our organization has received throughout the summer, we had posted some regulations with respect to pools on your front lawn.
