Sharing Thanks for Tacony Creek Park

More than fifty TCP Keepers friends and family came together for our annual TCP Friendsgiving dinner on November 16 at Panasian Buffet.

Keepers met new friends, and caught up with old, celebrating all of our shared Tacony Creek Park hard work and accomplishments this past year.

Everyone enjoyed participating in the ABCs of Thankfulness game, taking home some schwag, and seeing the newest TCP maps in 7 languages:

English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Haitian Creole, Arabic, and Khmer.

Attendees shared what they appreciate about Tacony Creek Park on raindrops.
