All seminars will be held online via ZOOM! from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Password and link will not be sent at the time of registration, but will be sent closer to the seminar.

Sundays in the Park
September 26th, October 3rd, October 17th
During Sundays in the fall, Tookany Creek Parkway is closed to motor vehicles - weather permitting - so cyclists, joggers, walkers and others can enjoy the roadway free from traffic. 

Virtual Costume Contest
Cheltenham Township Residents are invited to email in a photo of their child(ren) in costume for a chance to win a $50 prize. Our panel of judges will vote on the entries and award one winner from the following age groups: Ages 3 to 7 or Ages 8 to 12. To enter, email your photo, age and first name of child to Parks and Recreation Staff. By submitting your photo, you agree to let us share it on Social Media. We will not share any personal information (I will mark over license plates or house numbers if you do hide them prior to submission.) There is no fee to enter. Last Day to send in your photo entry is October 27th. Winners will be announced on social media on October 29th.

Cookie Cookbook 
We want your cookie recipes! Whether you are a baker or not, please email us your favorite cookie recipe. If you have a special story or a picture of your cookies to share, you may send us that as well. Once we have received all the entries, we will create a downloadable PDF (e-book) to share on our Parks and Recreation page for all our residents to enjoy. When you contribute your recipe (and photo or story if you choose) you grant us permission to share your recipe and photo or story. Submit recipes by December 10th so we can release the cookbook by December 17th.
