This past Sunday September 21st, the Turkish Cultural Center (TCCP) hosted its annual picnic at the Monroeville Community Park. More than 100 people attended the picnic and enjoyed some delicious Turkish style barbecue. There was also a variety of Turkish desserts that the guests enjoyed. It is important to note that Sunday was also International Peace Day.
With this day in mind, the TCCP had the opportunity to have a great get together with families of different cultures. We celebrated the day by getting together with the diverse Pittsburgh community. This was also a reunion picnic with the TCCP and PII for the group of people who visited Turkey. The president of Saint Vincent College and many other distinguished families were also a part of Sunday’s picnic. The guests had the opportunity to talk to several Turkish families and learn more about the Turkish culture and the upcoming events.
