Gene and Fran have both been working diligently through the 311 line to try and get the street lights back on on Beech Avenue. (We’re setting up a pool for which day the week of the Wine Tour the City decides to tear up the street.)

Carl & Cecile and Deb & Doug got up an insanely early time to host the neighborhood cheerers for the Marathon. Thanks to everyone who helped out.

Our insurance agent Megan & Scott from Babb Insurance spent a Friday afternoon scrambling to set up parking for the folks displaced by the marathon. Thanks to Hal for his suggestion that we should look for parking – he’s looking out for folks.

Talk about above and beyond…Deb and Trish have been helping out home owners on tour with actual gardening, along with all the Tour arrangements!

If you’d like to recognize a neighbor who went above-and-beyond for you or the neighborhood this month please send a note to or give Cathy a call at (412) 418-2027 and we’ll make sure they’re recognized in the Gazette.
