Things To Do

Cézanne and Beyond February 26, 2009 - May 17, 2009 The Philadelphia Museum of Art hosts 60+ works by the influential French painter

Paid Tickets Required - On Sale Now Member tickets - Members See it Free Paul Cézanne’s posthumous retrospective at the Salon d’Automne in 1907 was a watershed event in the history of art. The immediate impact of this large presentation of his work on the young artists of Paris was profound. Its ramifications on successive generations down to the present are still in effect. This exhibition features forty paintings and twenty watercolors and drawings by Cézanne, displayed alongside works by several artists for whom Cézanne has been a central inspiration and whose work reflects, both visually and poetically, Cézanne’s extraordinary legacy. These artists include Max Beckmann, Georges Braque, Pierre Bonnard, Charles Demuth, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Fernand Léger, Brice Marden, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Giorgio Morandi, Pablo Picasso, Liubov Popova, and Jeff Wall. Based on the remarkable resources of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, both in its holdings of major works by Cézanne and in its large collections of early modernist works—thanks to A. E. Gallatin and Louise and Walter Arensberg—this show is a unique occasion to experience the continuing impact of this influential painter. For tickets visit

Its Snuggle Season in Pennsylvania Winter in the State of Independence is a romantic time. Cold temperatures are the perfect excuse to snuggle up by the fireside with your honey. Or, if you're the sporty type, a ski lodge is just the ticket. Spend a weekend at one of our excellent ski resorts, or seek out a romantic B&B that's just right for the two of you. Don't overlook the Commonwealth's many other romantic places, either - how about a ride in a horse-drawn carriage or a tour of covered bridges? For a romantic road trip that includes a covered bridge, check out "Beautiful Bucks Excursion" by visitPA user jcat44521! Wineries are another romantic mainstay, as are the waterfalls at Ricketts Glen State Park. An incline ride up Pittsburgh's Mt. Washington provides a romantic view of the city's skyline, and the LOVE statue in Philadelphia gets the point across in no uncertain terms. (Both places are perfect for popping the question!)

Kaiserman Tenants HRSC-Northeast 10th Anniversary Ten years ago, on November 19, 1998, the Department of Navy, Human Resources Service Center-Northeast (HRSC-NE) officially opened its doors in the Bourse Building. The HRSC-NE started in the Bourse Building with 125 employees and occupied parts of 3 floors. Today we have over 200 employees and occupy parts of 5 floors. We celebrated our 10-year anniversary on a sweet note with ceremonial cake cuttings on each of floors by the senior plank owner. For those of you not familiar with the term "plank owner" it refers to those individuals who are the first crew of any navy ship (and in our case, organization) when it was first established. It entitled those with this seniority to be an owner of a single plank of wood of the ship being commissioned. Throughout the day, the original opening day ceremony video along with a video of many employees recalling memories and events of their first days here at the HRSC-NE, were played continuously on each of the floors. The afternoon offered a chance for all employees to get together to view picture collages of many of events and memories of the past 10 years. This gave the employees time to reminisce with each other while enjoying a snack of cheeses, pepperoni, crackers and beverages. It was a wonderful 10-year celebration and we look forward to continuing to serve the Navy community. Written by: Khrysse Gabel

PNC Bank Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk for MS Celebrating its 3oth run on Thursday, November 27, 2008, the PNC Bank Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk for MS was the largest race in Delaware, attracting more than 2,000 participants and raising more than $75,000. The event sprouted from the effort of a handful of Bank of Delaware employees who called the

Delaware Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis

Society one day and said “We want to do something about MS.” Larry Shontz along with PNC Mascot

About our new presenting sponsor New this year is presenting sponsor Kaiserman Company, Inc. Based in Philadelphia, the Kaiserman Company owns the PNC Bank Center building in Wilmington among other properties in the Philadelphia-metro area. According to Kaiserman spokesperson Lisa Bass, the organization was founded in the 1920s by Kevy K. Kaiserman to acquire, develop, and manage real estate. “We provide leasing, management, and property services to all of our properties, including the PNC Bank Center,” adds Larry Shontz, chief executive officer of Kaiserman Company, Inc. “A close relationship is maintained so that we are able to deliver exceptional services to our tenant body. We have extensive internal resources to draw upon, providing us with the ability to knowledgeably address issues and capitalize on the right opportunities. We consider support of the Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk for MS one of those opportunities.”

About multiple sclerosis Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS. Most are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50—during life’s most productive years—and more than twice as many women are diagnosed as men. MS affects more than 400,000 Americans.Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body. Symptoms range from tingling and numbness in the limbs to blindness and paralysis. In other words, MS stops people from moving. Although the progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS cannot be predicted, advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Studies show that early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can reduce future disease activity and improve the quality of life for many people with MS.
