June neighborhood mixer will be at Peppis on Western Ave, Friday the 19th at 6:30 PM. If it is not raining we will meet in the patio at the back of the restaurant. Bring your own wine or beer or you may order fountain drinks there and anything else you want from the menu.
Bocce will begin on Thursday, June 11th, 6:30 at the court on Western Ave. Everyone is welcome to play, no prior experience is necessary. We will play every Thursday unless it is raining. In prior years we played on Wednesdays, because several indicated conflicts with the day we are trying Thursday.
The 4th of July 4th Block Party will be on Saturday the fourth in the 900 Block of Beech.
Many thanks to Dennis, Doug and Linda Iannotta for all they did for the May Mixer/1st Annual Allegheny
West Art Show. An added attraction was Ann Gilligan’s sorbet. There was a great turnout, around 70
persons. Already there is discussion for the 2nd Annual Art Show for next year.
The Memorial Block Party had a great turnout and we were fortunate no rain came as was predicted. It
would not have been possible without the help of the following: Tom Barbush and Greg Coll for all the
grilling; Gloria Rayman and her brother John who moved paper supplies; food and beverage; Doug Lucas
who personally patted out all the burgers; John Burton who secured the wine and beer; Howard Brokenbek
for moving tables and trucking supplies back to the office. Several others helped with setting up and
cleaning up, and since I did not keep a list that day I cannot list everyone. Thank you to all the helpers.
