Dear Friends:

It's a new fiscal year for TTF! To those of you who supported our annual end of the year fund drive, thank you. We were very pleased with the generous response from so many of you. Every donation is critical.

You may have noticed that we didn't send you a June newsletter -- with Block Parties, new staff and interns, StreamSmart projects, our Photo Contest, and the ribbon cutting at the Conklin Pool (see photo with more here) -- we just ran out of time! Please take a moment to catch up on all of these activities and more by reading the blogs on our Bulletin Board below.

Please join me in welcoming our new Board Directors: Montez Devine James, Thomas Johnston, Donna Long, Donald Pierce, and Sara Poindexter. You can learn more about them here.

Last month, Cheltenham Township reduced our annual municipal dues payment by 50%, from $40,000 to $20,000 for the fiscal year that just ended. We are committed to our unique watershed partnership, and will be reviewing our dues structure and efforts to consistently communicate the valuable benefits that TTF provides to all of our communities via award winning programs and projects, as well as municipal stormwater public education and engagement activities. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions: Julie@ttfwatershed.org.

Hope to see you online with other volunteers tomorrow evening -- or at a creek soon!

Best, Julie
