WAAG would like to extend a huge THANKS to the following individuals:
Holly McIntosh of AmeriCorps KEYS. Holly allotted AmeriCorps volunteers to clear the brush and debris from Whitney Avenue and allowed WAAG to tie-in priming of the plywood boards with AmeriCorps' day of service.
Wilkinsburg Department of Public Works' Operations Manager, Melanie Hall. Melanie was a lifesaver, making the WDPW garage available to store and paint the plywood boards. She received delivery of the boards and made sure her team followed the cut list diagram measurement instructions provided by WAAG.
The Wilkinsburg DPW team: Robert "Bob" Noe, Larry Malone, Otis Carswell and Roy Clark. These guys did all the heavy lifting, and with lots of smiles. Additionally, Bob had pre-cut and labeled the majority of boards while Larry made sure we had enough horses set up to accommodate priming the boards.
AmeriCorps/Jumpstart volunteers and University of Pitt students: Melissa Schmidt, Holly Keene, and Thomas Bryant. Never taking a break, these three helped WAAG's Project Manager prime all 80 boards in record time.
AmeriCorps KEYS and everyone who volunteered their time to serve WAAG and Wilkinsburg on May 29th. Thank you!!!
