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. In the short term, we need someone to start seeking cars, soliciting car clubs, and establishing a list of volunteer homes. Please contact Carol Gomrick at email@example.com if you are able to help.
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!
It’s Spanish wines and tapas for this year’s Wine Tour
The dates of the tour will be Friday, June 2nd and Saturday, June 3rd. We are finalizing the list of houses and will announce them soon. There will be properties never before featured on the Wine & Garden Tour. We are looking for volunteers, as well as sponsors. Please email email@example.com if you’re able to help in either capacity.

Happy New Year! The holidays are barely behind us and the New Year is in full swing which means it’s time to start thinking about planning the 2017 Allegheny West Wine & Garden tour! I’m counting on prior volunteers and interested newbies to contribute ideas and time to help make the 2017 event bigger and better than ever.
Please attend a Wine Tour “Kick-off” meeting Thursday, February 16 at 7:30 pm at the AWCC office (806 Western Ave). I’d like to get your input from prior tours and fresh ideas for the 2017 event. One of our first tasks is to confirm the event date. This meeting will initiate the formation of a 2017 Wine and Garden committee.
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending on February 16th, so I have your email if something changes, or if you can’t attend and would still like to contribute.
I look forward to getting started and working with you!
