You can check out the list of participating museums here (includes the Franklin Institute, Winterthur (DE), among many others).

The Oldest "Philly" Player
I thought you might be interested in this story. It is about a man who is 110 years old who used to play professional ball - even prior to the Negro leagues. No one knew he was alive, but he was recently "discovered" in a nursing home. He lived at 17th & Bainbridge Streets - so he's quite local.

Silas Simmons, 110, pitched and played outfield in the equivalent of the black major leagues until at least 1929.
Andrew DiNardo's Ordination
"I am grateful to everyone for their prayers about my trip to Florida on Sunday. Carroll Wynne and I made it down in good time to participate in Andrew DiNardo's ordination service. It was good to see the Phillips and DiNardo families. They are all thriving at First Presbyterian Church, and it was great to hear the DiNardo women sing the offertory during the service."

Child Care for Vision Night
Lansdowne Yard Sale
I have been a regular attender at Tenth since moving back to Philadelphia. My fiancee and I are moving to Virginia after our Oct. 15 wedding. As is perhaps evidenced by the fact that one of Dr. Ryken's hymns was part of my April marriage proposal, we have both been blessed greatly by our time at Tenth--including by your teaching. Thank you for all you do. Now to the point. Due to this latest move, as you can see at the following link, I am trying to get rid of a small refrigerator I used in college:http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/zip/210156720.html
I don't want any money for it--just someone who is willing to pick it up in Drexel Hill and take it off my hands! I have already received about 30 e-mails from Craig's List readers, but I would be happy to give preference over them to someone connected to Tenth if anyone can use it. I am out of town until Tuesday, so I'm just going to let the e-mails collect until then and pick somebody. If you think this might be of interest to the readers of your blog, I'd be happy to have you post it--one extremely tiny way, I guess, that my bride and I can give back to a congregation that has been such a blessing to us.
