Deni Playground Reunion 2012

Saturday was a perfect day for a picnic and Frankford residents had a choice of two.

The Deni Playground Reunion of 2012 was held at Pennypack park.  It is a great location up along the river.  I took a lot of pictures and talked to folks about how much that park meant to the people in the neighborhood.  Father Steve Wetzel, from St. Joachim’s Parish, held a small memorial service to remember those who have passed on. Big Joe Mastrangelo was presented with the Hall of Fame award. Some money was raised for St. Joachim parish.  Food and good times went on all day.

Thanks to Eddie Miranda for leading this effort.  Everyone is already looking forward to next year.  If you did not know, Deni has  Facebook page where you can read more about the day.  You can find it at this link.
