New Board Member

At its March 10 meeting, the Board of Directors of The Friends of Louis I. Kahn Park elected Robert Cressy as a new Board member.

Bob is a retired merchant, formerly associated with Strawbridge & Clothier department stores, and a longtime neighborhood resident.  He feels that Kahn Park is an essential element in creating a “hometown” ambiance for our neighborhood, and that care of this resource is the duty of all who enjoy it.

We welcome Bob to the Friends, and look forward to working with him.
