On behalf of the Board of the Point Breeze Organization, I want to welcome you to our web site, pointbreezepgh.org, and to The Breeze Blog. We hope you’ve been finding the site useful since it went live last month. The PBO is committed to enhancing the quality of life in our neighborhood. We’ve recently reorganized and have a number of new board and committee members who are hard at work to create new events and to continue the successful record of previous ones. We have also gained 501(c)(3) status.
We now hold three public meetings a year with interesting speakers and timely subjects, and we welcome your ideas and suggestions for future programs. We also welcome your comments on neighborhood issues and feedback on the organization’s programs and activities. You can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The upcoming meeting on Tuesday, October 6, will deal with winter safety.
The PBO is making good use of today’s social media to keep Point Breeze residents informed. We now have an active website, email list, and Facebook page, and participate on Twitter and Instagram. Board members also post to Nextdoor Point Breeze. We hope we’re making it easier for you to stay informed and to make sure you don’t miss any great events.
The next few months are busy ones for the PBO. Coming up on Saturday, August 1, is our Second Annual Point Breeze Porch Crawl (see Annette O’Boyce’s blog post for more information and use our registration page to join in the fun); National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4; the Fifth Annual Point Breeze Neighborhood Yard Sale on Saturday, September 19; our very popular signature event, “The Bonfire,” on Saturday, October 3, at Sterrett School, and to close out the year, Light Up Point Breeze, on Saturday, December 5.
We have some great people working to make the PBO a success, but, we also need your help. Visit our contact page and register to be a member. There is no cost to belong. United we can make our neighborhood even better.
I look forward to seeing you at our events.
President, Point Breeze Organization
