The mission of the Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame is to foster the development of civic values and a sense of community in Northeast Philadelphia, along with a greater awareness and appreciation of the area’s rich history, by honoring the lives and accomplishments of its most distinguished citizens. To that end, the Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame will honor those Northeast Philadelphia residents past and present whose lives or careers have been marked by high achievement or those individuals who have had a lasting, significant, and positive impact on the Northeast Philadelphia community.
Often called “the Great Northeast,” Northeast Philadelphia is an area of approximately forty-four square miles bounded by the Delaware River to the east, Bucks County to the north, Montgomery County to the west, and the Tacony and Frankford Creeks to the south. It is an area with a distinguished history that was provided enriched by the contributions of countless individuals who have lived and worked here over the years.
The Northeast Philadelphia Hall of Fame is sponsored by Glen Foerd on the Delaware in partnership with Holy Family University, the Historical Society of Frankford, The Northeast Times, and the Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. The inaugural induction ceremony was held in October 2009, with the subsequent inductions in October 2010, 2012, and 2014. The Hall of Fame is guided by two committees: the Selection Committee, which chooses the inductees, and the Steering Committee, which plans the induction ceremony and raises money for the project.

Thinking Green. Printing Smarter.The printing process can be resource intensive, but there are many “green practices” we can incorporate in our daily work routines to help diminish the amount of waste we generate. Here are some methods we are currently using:
- Recycling Programs – From paper to ink to money and everything in between, recycling saves. It also reduces air pollution and waste to landfills.
- Controlling Waste – By establishing inventory controls, we reduce waste and save cash. Sequencing print jobs by ink color saves ink changes and labor while eliminating waste.
- Using Resources Wisely – Incorporating recycled papers – with high levels of post-consumer content – into your communications projects helps keep a lot of paper out of landfills.
- Choosing "Smart" Inks – Using vegetable- or soy-based inks means less toxins and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are released into the air and soil. You can choose print communications to be part of your mix … and feel good about it. Having a partner that knows what’s essential to you and your brand image makes the choices easy. Local roots, local commitment, and a local business to support your work – that’s a pretty powerful combination.
