Morningside is one of Pittsburgh’s best kept secrets. Close-knit and friendly, neighbors live in two-story brick homes with old fashioned porches that encourage long talks and quick chats with friends and neighbors. Children ride their bicycles in the gentle shade of the trees that line the sidewalk, and joggers have two-square miles of neighborhood to explore. The Morningside Area Community Council meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Morningside VFW Hall at 1820 Morningside Avenue.
It’s hard to believe that it’s almost February and 2015! While it might be cold and snowy outside, it’s cozy at the monthly MACC meetings (first Wednesday of the month, 7pm, VFW). Join us as we discuss the issues that impact Morningside, meet your neighbors, and learn more about how you can become more involved.
Plus, don’t forget to renew your MACC membership, for more details check out the January MACC Member Letter 0115. These membership dues help us keep Morningside beautiful, as well as support free and low cost events for residents and their families.

On behalf of the Morningside Mile Committee, we would like to thank you for your participation, donation, and support for the runners for the 4th Annual Morningside Mile Honoring Those Who Serve! This year we had just under 200 participants register for the one mile race and many others attend the Morningside Mile MACC n’ Cheese competition and Comedy Night fundraisers. Together, we raised over $6,000 for the Allegheny Gold Star Mothers and the Morningside Area Community Council in the name of our 2014 honoree – Morningside resident and Gold Star Mother, Mrs. Frances Colletto 1914-2013.
We will be presenting a check to the Allegheny Gold Star Mothers on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 7:00PM at the Morningside VFW (1820 Morningside Ave).
We’d very much appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to provide us with feedback on your experience and recommendation for next year. We are looking for feedback from those who participated in the race and those who did not, since the race impacts all Morningside residents. Click here for the short survey:
Thank you again for your support of the 2014 Morningside Mile and we appreciate your help planning for an even more successful 2015 race!
