Tacony moves Conwell show, also preps for history day

In Ta­cony, the Tommy Con­well con­cert has been res­ched­uled while plans con­tin­ue for the neigh­bor­hood’s an­nu­al his­tory day fest­iv­it­ies.

Rain washed out Con­well’s sched­uled Aug. 25 con­cert at Dis­ston Re­cre­ation Cen­ter, at 4500 Dis­ston St. (at Glen­loch Street). The event, the last in a six-part sum­mer con­cert series, has been res­ched­uled for Thursday, Sept. 8, at 6:30 p.m.

Mean­while, the His­tor­ic­al So­ci­ety of Ta­cony is con­duct­ing a Cow Chip Bingo fund-raiser lead­ing up to the 20th an­nu­al Ta­cony His­tory Day, which also takes place at Dis­ston Re­cre­ation Cen­ter.

The parade and fest­iv­al are sched­uled for Sat­urday, Sept. 17.

Vis­it­ors can pur­chase a square for $10. At 2 p.m., squares will be laid out evenly on the field. A cow will “choose” a square, and the win­ner will re­ceive $5,000.

To buy a square in ad­vance, call 215-338-8790 or stop by Ta­cony Lib­rary, at 6742 Tor­res­dale Ave. (at Knorr Street). ••
