Starting at the gazebo of Lincoln Park, the walk will travel along a different route each month, accessing a different segment of the Towpath Trail on each tour. A general history of the Tremont area will be addressed for all tours, however as each month follows a different route, each tour will feature a closer look at the history and landmarks along that particular route. The monthly History Walk will be the 3rd Saturday of each month, meeting at 9:30am in Lincoln Park. June’s History Walk will be Saturday 6/19. For questions please contact towpath@tremontwest.org , or Dan at dlotz9@yahoo.com . Hope to see you soon!

Pilgrim Food Pantry Reopens July 1st
Welcome Back to our Clients!
 
Pilgrim Church, at the southwest corner of West 14th and Starkweather, is reopening its neighborhood Food Pantry after a pandemic forced shutdown. The Pilgrim Food Pantry will reopen on July 1, 2021. The pantry hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 AM to noon. 
 
Pilgrim operates a “choice” pantry. That means our clients choose the food items that best suit their family’s tastes and needs rather than being provided with pre-bagged items. Eligibility for becoming a food pantry client is based on household income. Income thresholds are established by The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). 
 
We serve people living in the Tremont area ZIP Codes of 44113 and 44109. When visiting the pantry, clients should bring their photo identification. The pantry is handicap accessible. The entrance to the pantry is on the south side of Starkweather just west of W 14th Street. Mask are required to enter the building. Clients can visit the pantry once a month.
