Second Annual Community Block Party A Big Success


The weather may have been chilly but the atmosphere was warm and friendly at the Commitment to Community’s Joint Block Party celebrating Wilkinsburg and Edgewood. Many of our friends and neighbors came out to celebrate the community and to enjoy the event activities. Mayors from both municipalities came out along with the fire and police departments from both communities. TRCIL (Three Rivers Center for
Independent Living) hosted a table and voter registration. WTAE celebrities signed autographs. Edgewood and Wilkinsburg Historical Societies shared the histories of the communities. Edgewood Library had special reading related games for the kids. Other activities included a moonwalk, face painting and magic tricks, ice cream by Ben & Jerry’s, hot dogs, a DJ spinning oldies and a car cruise. We appreciate the help and support of everyone who made the Block Party a success. Save the date for the Third Annual Community Block Party, Saturday, October 3, 2009.
