PNN Newsletter: This Sunday - Our Autumn Party has Moved to Summit Church!

Our Autumn Party has Moved to Summit Church!

Sunday, September 10th, 4PM-6PM, Summit Presbyterian Church, 6757 Greene St (Entrance on Westview)



Change of Venue


The weather will not cooperate with our plans for a Lawn Party to kick off our fall campaign, and we don't want everyone who signed up to be slogging across muddy grass to get to the delicious food that we're preparing.


So, we decided to take our party indoors to the Summit Presbyterian Church, located at 6757 Greene Street in West Mt. Airy. The auditorium is spacious and will accommodate us all. You are likely familiar with this locale as we have used it many times in the past (and it's a bit closer than Chez Brown in Overbrook).

If you haven’t already signed up/donated, it’s not too late...



Get Ready for Fun!


Live Music! Jefferson Berry and his band will entertain us with great covers and original material (Tim Brown may sit in for a song or two).


Great Food! We'll be preparing flatbreads with toppings of spiced ground chicken with currants, Cuban beef picadillo, and a Mediterranean chopped salad; along with refreshments of wine, beer and soft drinks.


Beanbag Toss Tournament! Following on our first tournament last summer, we plan to crown a new team of champions this year with our PNN Championship trophies.


Inspiration from Our Movement Champions! We'll hear from Councilmember Kendra Brooks and her running-mate Nicolas O'Rourke as we prepare to lift them to victory against the Republicans for those two at-large seats.


You're Supporting Two Good Causes! This year’s fundraiser will support both PNN and our friends Kendra Brooks and Nic O’Rourke


We look forward to seeing you at Summit Church at 4PM on Sunday!

This Week in History


Sep 9, 1971 – Attica Uprising. Prisoners took over Attica Prison in upstate New York to protest deplorable living conditions. Four days later, the governor ordered the prison stormed resulting in the deaths of 33 people. The uprising led to changes in the prison system and the beginning of the prisoner's rights movement.


Sep 11, 2001 – Day of Remembrance. This day marks the 21st anniversary of a series of attacks by Saudi Arabian and Egyptian hijackers targeting the twin tower buildings in NYC and murdering 2,977 people. This led to the PATRIOT Act and a 20-year war in the middle east.


Sep 15, 1963 – Birmingham Four. On this day, 16th Street Baptist Church was bombed by four known Klansmen, murdering four black girls who were practicing for choir. The site remains a rallying place for Civil Rights.


Thanks for your activism!

Tim Brown, Organizing Director
