A special thanks to Dr. Dan, Eleanor Coleman and Ann Gilligan – and any anonymous workers – for weeding and picking up litter throughout the neighborhood. This has made all of our jobs easier.
In anticipation of the Alleys, Axles & Ales tour on September 23rd, we’re asking that EVERYONE help to rid the alleys behind their properties of weeds and litter – most are in terrible need of attention right now!
Anyone needing trash bags and gloves (can be delivered to your front door) should email Trish at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your continuing help in beautifying Allegheny West!
It’s time to start thinking about this year’s Old Allegheny Victorian Christmas House Tour.
This year’s tour will take place on December 8th and 9th. We are looking for homeowners who are willing to open their homes for this year’s tour. If you’re interested and able, please contact Carol Gomrick at email@example.com.
Information about volunteering for the event will be coming out after this month’s Alleys, Axles & Ales tour on September 23rd. Stay tuned to the calendar and e-newsletter to learn about the kickoff meeting for this year’s tour volunteers.
We’re seeking neighbors who are willing to open their homes (and garages) for the Alleys, Axles & Ales tour.
The target date is September 23. We also need volunteers who are willing to work in preparing and executing the tour. Please contact Carol Gomrick at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to help.
I am looking for some help this weekend at this month’s OpenStreets! I will be at a table over near the Iron Deer statue in Allegheny Commons with a table full of fun stuff and a device I use to make BIG BUBBLES =)
I will be there from 8am setting up till 1pm. Please let me know if you are willing to join me as a volunteer for even just half an hour. Any help is appreciated =)
Thank you all! Hope to see you Sunday!

We’re seeking a neighbor/neighbors who can volunteer to oversee the Second Annual Alleys, Axles & Ales tour. The target date is September 23rd.

Babb, Inc. on Ridge Avenue once again participated in a “Day of Caring” on May 23, 2017, allowing about 22 employees to care for the AW parklet at Brighton Road and Western Avenue. These enthusiastic colleagues worked hard to help Diane Caruso and Trish Burton begin to implement a long-term plan for the garden. Twenty-five bags of weeds, overgrown foliage, tree prunings and trash were gathered that morning. Many perennials were re-planted in different areas, including a grouping of hosta varieties that now ring the tree. Flats of multi-colored annuals were then planted in the beds and in tree wells along Western Avenue.
Thank you, Babb employees: We couldn’t have done it without you!
April 22nd is Earth Day, and Allegheny West will celebrate by holding its first clean-up day.
Meet at the Allegheny West office at 806 Western Avenue for coffee and breakfast treats and to gather some trash bags and gloves. If you have your own gloves, brooms, and tools, please bring them! Begin to look for areas in the neighborhood that need to be freshened after the winter. We’ll also have a group that will attack the leaves in the parklet at the corner of Brighton and Western.
Contact Trish Burton with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or (412) 523-9402. We’ll see you on the 22nd!
