The Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce last week held a reception at Torresdale-Frankford Country Club for Sister Francesca Onley, who is retiring as president of Holy Family University. Sister Francesca became the school’s fourth president in 1981, and she has overseen much physical growth of the institution. She also led Holy Family’s transition from college to university status in 2002.

Actually, these folks have been singing for the last few years to raise money for their favorite charities. Now the group is gearing up for its first golf outing, which will be on July 25 at Torresdale-Frankford Country Club.
