We traveled to the Society for Contemporary Craft to view an exhibition on food justice. We also visited the Alma/Lewis Gallery with curator Kililo Luckett for an exhibition Amani Lewis: Reimagining Care.
We celebrate our grandparents every year! In September 2021, we rented out a shelter at Schenley Park. We all enjoyed a meal together and gave out awards to our exceptional grandparents and neighbors.
We joined P3R, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, Student Conservation Association, Venture Outdoors, YMCA and the Hazelwood Community Health Workers for a day of outdoor activity at Burgwin Field. Each organization had their own activity. We encouraged families to make
their own DIY colorful stilts out of tin cans.
We spent the day the Moraine State Park, picnicking and enjoying the lake!
We headed to Waldameer amusement park for a fun summer day!
Our June excursion was spent enjoying the City’s Juneteenth celebrations! We went to the Juneteenth celebration in Point State Park.
Youth on the excursion were provided plastic, digital cameras to capture their neighbors attending the event.

Families enjoyed an in person lunch and low key birthday celebration for Carolyn, Jo-Jo, Nita and Tameeka. After lunch we headed to Flagstaff Hill at Schenley Park to listen to the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater Orchestra and watch a program of classical and contemporary ballet.
The April excursion was an investigation of parking garages in downtown Pittsburgh. Because we are a bit rusty in traveling and experiencing places together, we went to the wrong garage!
We took a glass elevator ride up to the top of a parking garage at 7th and Penn Avenue. We were supposed to be at 6th and Penn Avenue for Downtown Pittsburgh’s Car Bazaar. Fortunately, someone spotted the flea market from the rooftop. So we all headed back down the elevator to Penn Avenue, walked a block and up another elevator. Joey performed a bit of vendor reconnaissance for the Hazelwood markets. Everyone else did some shopping and then we went to lunch.
Post-lunch some of us took the train to the North Side and went to the Carnegie Science Center. You can take your own creative tour of parking garages with this AEU guide!
