Pennypack on the Delaware work completed

Mariann Porter Dempsey reports that the river path at POTD was completed yesterday with the help of 49 people.  Some DRCC Board and staff members were joined by Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, along with her staff and some of their family members; 15 members of Roofers Local 30 led by their Business Agent, Ed Donnelly; 7 members of the Costello Boxing Club led by Patrick and Tim Costello; and several members of Mariann’s family.  Also with us were Paul’s wife, Lisa, Tom and John Branigan, Mike Thompson from the City Planning Commission, John Kevlock from the Holmesburg Gun Club, and our efforts were documented by Fred Moore of the Holmesburg Civic Assn.  You can view Fred’s photos at this link –

After providing 100 tons of material, Tony DePaul & Sons did an amazing job of depositing it in many piles along the trail path, making it much easier for everyone to utilize all of the hand equipment – shovels, rakes, etc. – that was donated by Home Depot.
