TTF Moves into Historic Frankford

The Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership (TTF) held a formal opening of their new offices in the Globe Dye works building at 4500 Worth Street on Tuesday, September 17th.  It was indeed a gala occasion for Frankford as well as the TTF.    Many of the attendees saw a new day for the area straddling the creek along the watershed with the TTF being a major force for change.

As Julie Slavet, Executive Director of the TTF put it: We’re here to celebrate our new home in Frankford. It’s great to get into a neighborhood next to the creek and by the park. There’s a community in the Globe we’re thrilled to be a part of.

Many in Frankford are equally thrilled to have the TTF now joining our community.
