Power in Penn Branch Park

/

This week we received official notice that PEPCO will soon install two electrical outlets in our very own 9-11 Memorial Park. This has been a 12-year effort led by Alberta Paul and others. Having electric will make our gateway community park a well-lit, more inviting gathering place.  Also, we are asking everyone to donate an hour of time between 9am and 12pm, on Saturday, May 15th to help clean the park and plant new shrubs donated to us from the Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS). Remember to bring your tools and extra lawn and leaf bags!

Also, we offer special thanks to our community donors.  Penn Branch residents contributed over $500 to support the restoration and replacement of the bench in 9-11 Memorial Park. We wish to thank the following residents for their kind financial donations to help us replace the bench in 9-11 Memorial Park:

  • Mary Ann Smith
  • Alberta Paul
  • Leroy Owens
  • Donald & Barbara Harrison
  • Joan McKenzie
  • Marie Fritz
  • Tracey Grant
  • Rosemary Crockett
  • Dawn Moore
  • Maria Samuda

Can’t join us on Saturday, May 15th? Make a donation!

Calling All Cooks and Bakers for the Penn Branch Recipe Project!

We need your recipes for the Penn Branch Community Cookbook


The PBCA Board is putting together a Penn Branch Community Cookbook and we want to include you!  Since we have fewer opportunities to plan in-person events and interact with families across the neighborhood during the pandemic, this is an opportunity for long-time residents and younger families to connect through cooking.

We will gather together the recipes into a document and post them on the PBCA website.
