Apple Festival
Oct 21 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Come to the Woodford Mansion Orchard for a free Community Apple Harvest Festival! There will be cider making, heirloom apple tasting, pumpkin painting, live music, children’s games, and an apple dessert contest—enter yours! Visit the bee hives and make art with professional artist Heidi Barr. Orchard and mansion tours are FREE!

In 1769 the Pennsylvania Gazette described Woodford’s orchard as “…a handsome Garden, a thriving Orchard of good Apple Trees, and other Fruit, and a Well of excellent water.” Nine years ago, the East Park Revitalization Alliance, Philadelphia Orchard Project, and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department teamed up with the Naomi Wood Trust to replant and recreate the orchard at Woodford. Woodford’s orchard today is a contemporary interpretation that is self-sustaining, environmentally responsible, and community maintained and harvested.

Note Investing Strategies for the Everyday Real Estate Investor
Oct 26 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Real estate investor Dave Van Horn will lead a discussion on “Note Investing Strategies for the Everyday Real Estate Investor” during the Diversified Real Estate Investor Group’s monthly meeting on Oct. 26.

Van Horn, for the last decade, has served as president and CEO of PPR Note Co., a holding company that manages several funds that buy, sell and hold residential mortgages nationwide.
His talk will feature real-life anecdotes on his accomplishments, as well as how he became a millionaire. The discussion will serve as an introduction to note investing and his book of the same title, which is still a work in progress. Van Horn has more than 30 years of residential and commercial real estate experience as a realtor, investor and fundraiser. He successfully raised more than $100 million for both notes and commercial real estate.
In his talk, Van Horn will share various strategies of how investors can use notes to:

  • Build wealth
  • Pay for college
  • Buy/sell a house
  • Leverage equity
  • Pay off a mortgage in one-third of the time without changing income

Howloween 5k, Dog Walk, and Fall Festival
Oct 28 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Our 3rd Annual Howloween 5K and Dog Walk consists of a 5K followed by 1 mile Dog Walk and Fall Fair with 50+ vendors, contests and activities for all ages. Four legged friends are welcome to attend all activities, making this event unlike any other in the area! All proceeds will benefit Home at Last Dog Rescue, a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization, solely based on volunteers whose goal is to save the lives of homeless dogs suffering in high kill shelters, as well as owner surrender dogs that need to be rehomed due to unfortunate circumstances. In doing so, we hope to provide an alternative to the purchase of puppy mill and pet store dogs, therefore reducing the demand for and ultimately the supply of such dogs. For more information please visit our website. 

October Mill Open House: The Ghost of Henry Mumbower & Pumpkin Painting
Oct 28 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Don’t miss this slightly spooky but fun evening when old Henry Mumbower and his family revisit his Mill to see how it is operating today. Relax and roast marshmallows and enjoy some seasonal cider. Come early to paint your own pumpkin from 5-6pm.

The Evans-Mumbower Mill is located along the Wissahickon Creek, at the junction of Township Line and Swedesford Roads in Upper Gwynedd Township. Constructed in 1744, it is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Public open houses are held once a month, where visitors can go on guided tours to see the mill in operation, and learn about the history of milling on the Wissahickon Creek.

The Mill is owned and operated by the Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association (WVWA), a conservation group that is dedicated to protecting the health and beauty of the Wissahickon Creek, and enhancing life within the Watershed.  For more information see their website at http://www.wvwa.org/evansmill/openhouse/ or call 215-646-8866.
