Aspinwall Neighborhood Watch seeking new board members
Aspinwall Neighborhood Watch is seeking a treasurer and fundraising chairperson.
Founded in 2010, the group works closely with the borough's police department to help prevent crime in Aspinwall. Members also focus on community outreach with programs that include monthly soup delivery to senior citizens or those that are sick.
Volunteers delivered homemade soup to 16 residents in March and hopes to expand the roster in coming months.
Communications chairperson Sarah Shaffer said the board also will be seeking nominations for a new vice-president this fall when co-founder Tripp Clarke steps down.
Clarke helped launch Green Streets, an annual spring clean-up now hosted by Neighborhood Watch, long before the group was founded.
In its 13th year, Green Streets is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon April 21.
Other events hosted by Neighborhood Watch include a flower-planting event at Fountain Park on May 20 and its largest fundraiser, National Night Out, on August 7. In 2017, more than 1,000 people gathered at the borough's ball field to raise $16,000 that was split among the police department, Aspinwall Volunteer Fire Department and Foxwall EMS.
Anyone interested in joining the board must be residents of Aspinwall and have clearances. Email Jenny Ellermeyer at email@example.com.
