Fall News


Summer is winding down, and The Neighbors on the Mount are looking forward to the Fall.  The summer was busy with some great events and partnerships.  The Neighbors on the Mount partnered with the Mount Washington Community Development Corporation to host a happy hour event at Coughlin’s Law Kitchen & Ale House on June 21st.  Neighbors could mingle and enjoy the first day of summer at the newest restaurant and bar on the Mount.  Several clean-up events were sponsored by the Neighbor on the Mount this summer.  The Well Church partnered with the Neighbors on the Mount for some of the clean-up projects.  On July 28th, the Neighbors on the Mount sponsored a clean-up and weeding of the Firemen’s Park.  About 20 people helped out with that project.

The Neighbors on the Mount are always looking for more volunteers for the community clean-up projects.  More hands means that more clean-up work can be accomplished in a shorter amount of time!   If you are not able to help physically with the clean-ups, but you still want to help out, we could use some volunteers for some lighter tasks, such as handing out refreshments at the end of a clean-up project.  To volunteer for light duty for the clean-up projects, contact Marian Streiff (
