A message from our President
Allison Foster
Hello, Tarpon River neighbors! 

Somehow we are entering into the end of 2020. This year has both flown by and slowly moved through each day and month. I hope however you chose to spend Thanksgiving, you were able to do so safely.

I continue to be thankful for our community!

We have a lot coming up in the next two weeks (see the dates above) and we hope that you will be a part of our happenings. Most important, I hope you join our TRCA December General Meeting. This would "normally" be our December Holiday party, but this year we will be together via zoom. This meeting is important as we are holding our elections. Please be on the lookout for the information regarding how to join this zoom meeting.

As I've shared in the last few months, It is time for membership renewal! . We ask that you renew your membership and encourage your neighbors to do so, also! (follow this link to renew!) Your membership helps continue to ensure we continue to build community in Tarpon River, advocate for needs of the community, and in times when we can be physically together - to host events like Party in the Park.

Best Regards,

Tarpon River Civic Association President
 Tarpon River Civic Association Board of Directors wants to share our commitment to equitable and respectful treatment of all individuals everywhere and specifically within the Tarpon River Civic Association Boundaries. We understand and acknowledge the problem of systemic racism and discriminatory practices across our country toward many different groups and particularly towards Black Americans. Additionally, we want to reaffirm our commitment to creating a safe and inclusive community in Tarpon River. We recognize we have much work to do and we are committed to cultivate space for ongoing conversations to ensure our community continues to thrive as a place where all feel welcome.
