Top 3 stories to watch in NW Philly

Here’s a look at what’s to come on NewsWorks this week:

1. After two decades at Germantown Friends School, Dick Wade, the private institution’s head of schol, is stepping down and retiring. The end of Wade’s tenure, though, won’t pass quietly. On April 6, the school community will come together for a celebration. The event will feature musical perfomances and tributes from alumni, parents and students.

2. A community Easter egg hunt will be held this weekend at Gorgas Park in Roxborough. The morning event will feature face painting, balloon animals and a petting zoo. Children can also have their picture taken with the Easter Bunny. A similar event will be held inside Awbury Arboretum in East Germantown.

3. Over the course of three Wednesdays in April, Mordechai Liebling, director of The Social Justice Organizing Program at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, will explore the topic of food justice. The free class, offered through Weavers Way Co-op, will tackle, among other subjects, the interworkings of the food industry and the causes of food injustice.
