Happy Birthday to…

the city of Philadelphia. Today, 337 years ago, in the area was known as New Sweden…William Penn crafted a treaty of friendship with Swedish Settlers and the Lenape Indians to form a city now called Philadelphia. Legend says this agreement was finalized under an Elm tree in what’s now a neighborhood called Kensington. Today, there are over 1.5 million folks (like me) that call it home. This city knows age is no barrier…the only limit is our imagination.
