Yard Sales could be CANCELLED – Help Wanted

 

This year Stanton Heights Neighborhood Association is again seeking volunteers to help coordinate our annual community yard sales. Volunteers are needed prior to the event to select a date, create and collect sign-up forms, develop a map of sales, and place advertisements for the sales. Typically the yard sales have been held in late May or June. With a busier than usual Spring and earlier summer, we are considering moving the sales to this fall.

If you are able to help with any of the above listed tasks, please contact SHNA President Lissa Geiger Shulman at lissa.geiger@gmail.com.  If we do not receive enough interest, we will cancel the event this year.

March Happy Hour!

Join us for our monthly happy hour on Thursday, March 23 from 6-8pm at Full Pint Wild Side Pub.  Come early for happy hour specials including half-priced drafts from 5 to 6:30! An insider told us they have delicious snacks, sides, and flatbreads around $5-$6, as well as extra large sandwiches served with kettle chips for $9-$14.  The kids menu includes a $6 grilled cheese with chips and apple juice.  See you there!

More Free Trees!

Is your yard or street front missing a tree?  The SHNA Green Committee wants to help!did-you-know

Treevitalize, a program of the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Tree Pittsburgh offers free trees to community groups who have committed tree tenders – residents who are willing to help care for and maintain the trees.  Fortunately, our neighborhood has identified tree tenders, now we just need to identify more tree locations!  We need to identify a total of 10 new tree locations – these can be a front yard or tree pit between the sidewalk and the street.  We added 10 trees last year, many along Stanton Avenue in the heart of our neighborhood.  Let’s keep the ball rolling!

Unfortunately, many of the trees in Stanton Heights were planted many years ago and are in need of removal due to overgrowth (large trees interfere with utility lines and impact sidewalks) disease, and death.  The city has slowly been removing many of these older trees, leaving major gaps in our urban tree canopy.  Tree Pittsburgh is working to help replace these trees with native species that are appropriately sized for our urban environment.
If you are interested in applying for a tree, complete this short application. Trees will be planted in Spring 2017, but completed applications should be sent to our Board President, Lissa Geiger Schulman (not to the treevitalize coordinator as directed on the form) no later than Thursday, March 16.  We will be assembling all requests and submitting them as one application!
