We Are Glad You Are Our Neighbor Picnic

With the help of a One Northside/Sprout Fund Neighbor-to-Neighbor grant, Allegheny Unitarian Universalist Church and Northside Common Ministries are organizing a “We’re Glad You’re Our Neighbor” picnic on Saturday, September 23rd, from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm to bring together people from all different cultural and faith backgrounds that make up the rich tapestry of our community. Through food, conversation, and entertainment, we hope to foster deeper understanding and appreciation for our uniqueness and similarities and draw people into closer relationship.

Guests are invited to bring a blanket or chair and a favorite dish to share. Musicians and performers from a variety of styles and backgrounds will help us celebrate through song and dance. Opportunities will be provided to share our unique stories and build new connections with neighbors.

The event is free and open to all. No tickets necessary.

Allegheny Unitarian Universalist Church
