Judy Wicks hosted an after-work event at her lovely Fitler Square home to welcome Triskeles’ youth programs to Philadelphia. A warm spring evening provided the perfect setting for guests from many Philadelphia youth organizations, friends, supporters and others to have a first gin & tonic (Bluecoat, of course), sample some great local cheeses from Yellow Springs Farm and Birchrun Hills Farm, choose between Victory or Yards beer or Jubilee Hill ice tea and finish up with some great chocolate from Bridge Street Chocolate in Phoenixville.

After Judy spoke briefly of her long connection to Triskeles’ youth programs, staff members added details of programs offered in Philly and introduced some of the youth from this year’s Youth Entrepreneurship Council, and Executive Director Clemens Pietzner outlined ways in which volunteers could support the program. Everyone then returned to lively and interesting conversations on a hundred different topics.

This was a wonderful start to summer and we’re very grateful to Judy and the other guests who came, as well as to all those who donated food and drink for the evening.
