With its beautiful gardens and tented terrace, Appleford is a unique and picturesque piece of local history, and the perfect place to celebrate with Girls First this spring!
The Oak Tree Award Recipient: Suzy Wasson
Given to an individual whose strength, wisdom, resilience and sheltering care have made an outsized and lasting impact on Girls First, our students, and our families. Join us on April 23rd as we joyfully inaugurate this award by presenting it to Suzy Wasson.
A professional educator, Suzy’s love of teaching drew her to the newly formed Girls First over fourteen years ago as a volunteer and curriculum coordinator, through which she helped establish our commitment to the arts, including writing, painting, music, drama, and dance.
Suzy has said that one of the greatest gifts in her life was being involved with this grass roots after-school program. But for Girls First, one of our greatest gifts has always been Suzy, and we truly hope you can join us at Appleford as we honor her contributions to program!
Girls First gratefully acknowledges the support of corporations in our region who share our vision and values.

HEATHER WILSON PHAM
This historic site, originally part of a land grant from William Penn, is carefully maintained as an arboretum and bird sanctuary right in the heart of the Mainline. The picturesque location features a charming Fieldstone Home that is a beautiful example of early Pennsylvania architecture dating back more than 300 years, as well as blossoming trees and boxwood gardens, stone walls and clear streams. Join us at Appleford and experience its uniquely serene sense of beauty as you enjoy our art on the lawn!
Celebrating Together, Safely
As always, we want to create an atmosphere that feels safe and welcoming for all attendees. Therefore all food and drink will once again be served outside under a tent, with heat lamps if the weather requires it, and masks will be available should guests wish to use them.
Additionally, Girls First will adhere to any local health regulations and guidelines in place at the time of the event, and adjust requirements as needed to help make this event the safest experience possible for our guests, staff and volunteers.
