Out of School Time Celebration

What a wonderful way to celebrate the end of the school year and our virtual Out of School Time program. Zoom is great, but spending time together (and enjoying hamburgers and hot dogs off the grill) is so much better! #endoftheyear #schoolyear #zoom #hamburgers #hotdogs #Congrats #chestereastside

Our Community Garden is Very Productive !

The Chester Eastside – St. Paul’s Community Garden is very productive – to date, we have harvested 54.6 pounds of lettuce, broccoli, kale, spinach, Swiss chard, cabbages, beets, onions and herbs. What didn’t go home with the children in our Out of School Time garden club was given to the Chester Eastside food pantry. #communitygarden #veggies #foodpantry #yummy #stpaulschesterpa #chestereastside
