PASSi Holds Healing Garden Opening and Flag Raising Ceremony

On the 16th of September, the PASSi community celebrated the opening of the long awaited Healing Garden and the raising of the U.S. and PASSi flags. The event was held on a beautiful sunny Friday afternoon in front of PASSi's senior citizens with special appearances and speeches by Philadelphia Councilwoman Cherelle Parker, PA Representative Stephen Kinsey and members of the PASSi board.

Plans for the Healing Garden started two years ago when Mrs. Choi, PASSi's Executive Director, realized the need to raise the gardening area for the senior citizens who have trouble kneeling or reaching the low garden beds. After going through extensive paperwork for approval, design and funding, construction on the project started earlier this year and was completed in the beginning of September.

The Healing Garden, although showcases colorful perenials at the moment, is planned to grow herbs and other edible plants starting early next spring.

Philadelphia's Councilwoman Cherelle Parker and PA Representative Stephen Kinsey joined in the celebration and made brief statements to congratulate the PASSi community on its new achievements and also work to strengthen the bond between the Asian American senior citizens and the region's communities.
