King of Prussia District Celebrates 10-Years in 2020
Greetings!
 
Welcome to 2020 in King of Prussia! I hope you’re entering into the new year feeling renewed and energized after the holiday season.  

This year marks a very exciting milestone for our organization: the 10 th  Anniversary of King of Prussia District. Throughout the year, we will celebrate this milestone, and more importantly, how far this community has come in a decade, with a variety of special programs and events including:
 
  • 10th Anniversary Gala honoring our founders and celebrating the 2020 King of Prussia District Award recipients: May 7 from 6-8:30 PM, Sheraton Valley Forge

  • $10,000 in donations to support community events and Upper Merion Area School District student scholarships and teacher grants

  • Commemorative planting of 10 trees

  • Special anniversary series on our blog and social media channels

  • …and a very BIG project to be revealed next month!
 
Thank you again for your partnership in 2019, and for all that you’ve done over the course of these past 10 years to contribute to the evolution of King of Prussia as one of Pennsylvania’s premier live-work-play destinations. We are grateful for your support and look forward to celebrating with you this year.
 
Sincerely,
Eric T. Goldstein
Executive Director

PROJECT UPDATE

Improving King of Prussia's Highway Gateways
Furthering our commitment to making KOP more vibrant and attractive, King of Prussia District is partnering with PennDOT to install and maintain another planted median on the Schuylkill Expressway. This spring, the island median beside the westbound offramp to DeKalb Pike will transform from weeds, scrub trees and garbage to a vibrant landscape with flowering perennials and ornamental bushes.
