President's Corner

Happy September to all of our members! The weather is cooling, the leaves are just beginning to change colors, and yellow school buses are out on the streets – must be fall! I want to begin this month’s message with a huge thankyou to Kelly Joyce and the Food Truck Event committee for a successful event at Baldwin High School last month. Aside from business success, another important focus in our mission is to make our community a better place to live. The Food Truck event brought together business owners, school district employees, students & families together for a fantastic community event!


Which “community” do you belong to? Would you answer Pittsburgh, or South Hills, your school district, or even your neighborhood or street? MerriamWebster defines community as “a unified body of individuals”. In reflecting on the event and the large number of attendees, I realized that one of the keys to its success was that it brought together many different smaller communities that in turn make up the broader BrentwoodBaldwinWhitehall Community. Baldwin families with incoming freshman students were there for orientation, while Baldwin administrators and teachers were there to assist with the orientation program. Brentwood families, as well as other neighboring communities were also in attendance. And lastly, our local business community was there to network and market to each other and to the community at large through our bag distribution. All groups came together for a common purpose. It is my hope that we can continue to strengthen our local communities while simultaneously casting our net wider to see the impact we can have on the broader community of the South Hills.


Our Chamber will be hosting two more communityfocused events this fall: the Annual Corridor Communities Golf Outing September 18th, and our second Chili CookOff October 28th. We are still looking for golfers, sponsors and prize donations to make the golf event as successful as possible. We hope to see many members of our community at these events, as well as our regular monthly lunches.


Cheers –

Virginia Weida
