Summer in Sheraden

The warmer weather is giving residents the opportunity to get outside and spruce up their neighborhood. Many homeowners have their flower and vegetable gardens planted and landscaped.

Recently, a group of about 20 residents led by the Kiwanis Club of Sheraden, in partnership with the Sheraden Community Council and the American Legion Langley Post 496, spent some time brightening up the war memorial and parking lot below Langley School.
Newly planted and mulched!

They washed the monument and community message board, installed a new cement walkway, flowerbed, and large ceramic planters, and planted flowers. Mo, one of the main organizers of the effort, said that the improvements were their way of "giving our veterans the recognition and gratitude that they deserve. We are blessed to have a community that always takes the time to participate in projects like this."

The project was funded with a $1,000 grant under Mayor Ravenstahl's Love Your Block Program, an initiative of the servePGH program. Applications for Fall 2013 projects are due June 14!
