I received a statement from AdvanSix in reference to this morning's event at the "Frankford" plant. The following is from Debra Lewis, Director, Communications, AdvanSix Inc.

"On Thursday morning, there was a release of phenol at our Frankford site associated with a rail-car loading. The team acted to minimize the release and promptly began its clean up, while at the same time notifying the proper authorities, including the local water, fire and police departments who responded to the site. There were no injuries associated with this event and at this time we believe there is no risk to the community. An investigation is ongoing and plant operations continue as normal. As always, AdvanSix is committed to the safety and health of our neighbors."

**Super shout-out to Joseph C. Hohenstein for connecting me with the folks at AdvanSix!!**

Police said that at approximately 4:18 a.m., a worker failed to shut off the valve on a rail car correctly which caused 2,000 gallons of phenol to spill and enter the sewers. Firefighters responded and remained at the scene. There were no evacuations or reports of injuries.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION FOR GYMNASTICS AND DANCE - We will start accepting registration after 2pm on Monday, August 23rd. The registration fees are below, and there will also be a monthly fee for each class. We plan to have classes indoor (students must be masked), but we will be prepared to move both programs to the pool deck if the city feels a need to take further mitigation steps against the Delta Variant. We will have schedules under both plans ready before class starts, and likely by the time registration starts. Thanks you for your patience and support with all our programs in this still ebb and flowing time.
EDIT: Ages for now are 5 to 16. We are seeking the OK to have a class for 3 and 4 year olds and hopeful To do that. If we can add that age group we will.

Our pool schedule - we are scheduled to open on July 1st. We cannot publish the exact time we’ll open that day right now, as once the water is In, We will need Health Department clearance, but we are hopeful that we get that clearance early, so we may open as close to our normal operating hours as possible.
EDIT: To sign up for swim lessons, children MUST be 6 years old by December 31st of this year.
You may come up to the pool weekdays between 7:30am and 3pm to register your child for swim lessons. There is no cost. Once we have reached capacity, lessons are closed. Also, once the pool opens for swimming, we will not accept swim lessons registrations while open for swimming, this is a safety consideration for those swimming.

Hello does anyone know if the Memorial Day parade is still happening and what time? Thank you !
● >>> ""PLEASE"" sign and share to show you care !!! ❤ Our rec has been closed due to lead in the soil. This has been the factor of many locations, closing access to the land and then property put on that land. If this is the case, we (the neighborhood) would like a community center built there. It has been a location for the community for decades and we would like it to remain such.
Anyone know where the Cowabunga Ice Cream Truck is right now? I'm waiting to hear him come down around Thompson and Croydon and hear him from my window like normal but I haven't heard him yet.
Good morning! Just think you could be enjoying a delicious sticky bun in a few weeks from Fritz bakery with local pick up. St. John’s in Bridesburg will be our pickup site. Please support us without fundraising efforts. We need you.
anyone know if the bridesburg bulletin is out yet? just a question , haven't seen or received it--- I can pick up if that's ok ,maybe I just missed it, thanks joe
