Friends, I apologize for the delayed response to promote this wondrous event! I have been blacked out by excitement but am back the proverbial saddle and am ready to offer Community Day cheer! This will be a great community day! I hope everyone remains safe and keep an eye out for each other. Thank you to all who make this happen. Our boro workers do a fantastic job of setting up and cleaning up! More to come! T-minus 5 days.

I'll be at Table 13 tomorrow. Please come say "hi!"

Best Community Day music EVER!!! Many thanks to my fellow community members for visiting our S.H.A.A.D.D booth ....both in the plaza and our driveway. We should all be vested in what is happening to and around our neighborhoods. The weather, the food, the music, the people....all fantastic!

It was a great day! We loved seeing all the different vendors, organizations, and performers. We want to thank those who stopped by our Macaroni Kid South Hills booth.

Community Day was everything that I thought it would be….and more…..wonderous job to all involved! I cannot wait until next year. We can all strive to do better as neighbors and friends and therefore strive to all win the Neighbor of the Year award! This will be truly a significant community day when the Neighbor of the Year award is awarded to the entire community of Whitehall! I wish everyone a fantastic day and I hope that we all head the words by the great music group Alabama as resonated on their Christmas Album Alabama Christmas in 1985… “Christmas in Dixie, it's snowin' in the pines Merry Christmas from Dixie, to everyone tonight” When is it appropriate to put Halloween decorations out?
