I’m Pocket Pal! Thanks for allowing me to tag along with you as a part of my holiday adventure! I miss being able to visit and I’ve been running out of things to do here, so please include me in your day to day activities. Let’s have some holiday fun if you have time. Take me with you on your adventures and be sure to document our time together. It would be awesome if you’d take pictures of me so I can look back on all the fun I’ve had while I was visiting. Use the ideas on the right, or plan other exciting explorations for us! Because I get around a lot and I’m liable to pop up anywhere. Because I plan to post the photos of our adventures on Social media I ask that you help me not violate anyone’s personal privacy by snapping a pic of me alone and describing the activity I’m doing.
I can only visit through the holidays so please submit all photos and or documentation of our adventures any time between now and Monday January 4th, 2021. If you don’t have a way to take and submit photos feel free to just email all about what we did. Please let me know if you don’t want me to tell people about our adventures and I’ll keep them to myself, otherwise you can find me posting the photos and talking all about it on the TCC FACEBOOK PAGE!
