Organization selling bricks for Pitcairn memory garden

Wednesday, April 3, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Before the June 2011 dedication of the memory garden at the corner of Wall Avenue and Wood Street, the Pitcairn Community Renaissance Organization held a “Buy a Brick” campaign. The bricks — which could be purchased in honor or memory of families, individuals or organizations — were placed in the garden space.

The organization is holding another “Buy a Brick” campaign for those who might have missed the opportunity to buy one before or for those who want to buy more bricks.

The bricks come in two sizes; bricks that are 4 inches by 8 inches cost $40 and bricks that are 8 inches square cost $60.

To order or for more information, call 412-613-9374.

Camp G alumni

Camp G organizers are trying to get in touch with alumni. If you participated in the camp as a camper or volunteer, call Wendy at 724-863-7641.

Tastefully Simple fundraiser

The Pitcairn Woman's Club will hold a Tastefully Simple party on Monday at the Park Building on Broadway Avenue.

The party will begin at 7:30 p.m., after the group's regular monthly meeting.

Guests are welcome to attend and join the members as they sample products from Tastefully Simple's new spring/summer catalog.

The club will receive a percentage of the sales for the evening, and the proceeds will benefit a veterans program.

If you would like to attend, call Patti at 412-856-7294 by Saturday.

Five Below fundraiser

The youth group at Center Avenue United Methodist Church is holding a Five Below fundraiser from Friday through Sunday.

The group will receive 10 percent of the total of sales made through the fundraiser program.

To help the youth group, just cut out this article, and present it to the cashier at the Five Below store in Miracle Mile Shopping Center in Monroeville when you make your purchase.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward the group's summer retreat.
