Yet another inspiring grassroots effort underway to improve a neighborhood school. Friends of Chester A. Arthur focus on revamping the playground | Philadelphia Inquirer | 11/07/2011. As I have mentioned before, it’s really inspiring to see these efforts underway across the city. What is particularly inspiring about Friends of Chester A Arthur is that they are clearly well organized. I don’t know much first hand about their efforts, but the Inquirer article, their website and their Google Group clearly demonstrate that they are on the ball and poised to really make a difference. Bravo!
