Lorraine Marks of Aspinwall Neighborhood Watch presented Foxwall Chief Rick Duffy and other Foxwall members with a donation for $5,560 during the Aspinwall council meeting on Sept. 13. There also were donations in the same amount given to Aspinwall Police and Aspinwall VFD.

Aspinwall Neighborhood Watch last week donated more than $16,000 to three emergency agencies.

Past President Lorraine Marks handed over checks of $5,560 each to the Aspinwall Police Department, Aspinwall Volunteer Fire Department and to Foxwall EMS.

“We appreciate your continued support,” said Foxwall Chief Rick Duffy.

Fire Chief Gene Marsico and Police Chief David Caplan applauded members of the neighborhood watch for their hard work and thanked them for the donations.

Proceeds were raised during the group's eighth annual National Night Out on Aug. 1 at the Aspinwall Community Park. More than 900 people converged on the baseball fields for a night of socializing with neighbors and increasing awareness on crime prevention.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
