Join Tacony Pride Day activities

Start­Frag­ment

The Ta­cony Civic As­so­ci­ation will on­sor the first Ta­cony Pride Day on Sat­urday from noon to 4 p.m.

All Ta­cony res­id­ents and busi­nesses are en­cour­aged to clean up the front and back of their homes and stores and to team with neigh­bors to spruce up the rest of the block.

Civic as­so­ci­ation lead­ers be­lieve the neigh­bor­hood will look a lot bet­ter if com­munity mem­bers sweep, pull weeds and pick up lit­ter. As a side be­ne­fit, par­ti­cipants will get to meet neigh­bors they don’t know.

The city san­it­a­tion de­part­ment will pick up trash dur­ing the day. Res­id­ents and busi­ness own­ers must call 215-338-2575 to sched­ule pickup. Oth­er­wise, put the trash out on your reg­u­lar day.

The civic group is grate­ful to vo­lun­teers from Hamilton Dis­ston School for de­liv­er­ing fli­ers door to door.

The group’s next activ­ity will be a flea mar­ket on Sat­urday, June 11, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Dis­ston Park, along the 6900 block of Key­stone St.

The civic as­so­ci­ation’s bound­ar­ies stretch from Rob­bins to Cottman av­en­ues, from Frank­ford Av­en­ue to the Delaware River.

For more in­form­a­tion on the cleanup or the flea mar­ket, call 215-338-2575 or vis­it www.ta­co­n­ycivic.org
