As the whole city of Pittsburgh continues to grieve for the lives lost during the Tree of Life shooting that occurred on October 27, 2018, neighbors across the city have been coming together with strong and united messages of peace and hope.

On Friday, November 16, 2018, the Neighbors on the Mount and many local businesses will kick off the holiday season with Light Up The Mount.  The theme for this community event will be Peace.

The event begins at Fireman’s Park at 6:30 pm.  Here are some of the events planned:

St. Mary of the Mount choir will be performing.

Santa will appear at the Park to light up the park lights and will then visit with the kids at Redbeard’s Bar and Grill.  Free photos with Santa will be available.

Jennifer’s Hair Studio will be doing free hair braiding for kids at Redbeard’s during the event.

The Micro Diner will be providing free hot chocolate during the event.

Niko’s (Café Niko’s) will be providing free soup and a fun area for children to hulu hoop and play during the event.

Coughlin’s Law Kitchen & Ale House is hosting a “Create your own ornament” for the kids to be placed on the Coughlin’s Law Christmas Tree.

The Neighbors on the Mount will be handing out candy canes for the kids during the event.

Thanks to Mike Carlin, the Neighbors on the Mount sponsors several community clean-up projects throughout the year.  The latest was the Fall Community Clean-up that was held on Saturday October 6th.  About 10 great neighbors spent the morning cleaning up Grandview, Wyoming, Virginia, and Shiloh with a few other places in between.  13 large garbage bags were filled during the clean-up event.
