Street Fair Welcomes Autumn

Brentwood Borough will host its third street fair of the season on September 28th. The "Autumn Splendor" event features live music, a photo booth, ax throwing, and a variety of carnival-style games. Guests of an appropriate age can sample hearty harvest pints from Spoonwood Brewing and Mindful Brewing. Country Hammer Distillery will also be on site to offer samples of its flavorful moonshine. Patrons can satisfy their hunger with Venezuelan street foods from Ciliantro & Ajo, ramen from Miso Hungry, and gooey cinnamon rolls from Hot Bunz. The Brentwood-Baldwin-Whitehall Chamber of Commerce will concurrently be holding its annual chili cookoff event. A $5 dollar donation gains access to samples of secret family recipes and a chance to vote for your favorite concoction. Join us on Brownsville Road opposite Brentwood Towne Square from 6PM to 10PM.

Free Summer Thrills Provided to Blood Donors

Blood banks across the country are continuing to experience shortages. Unless these organizations maintain adequate quantities of this life-giving fluid, hospitals may be forced to forego or delay certain procedures for patients in need. Borough residents can help to mitigate this crisis by donating on May 24th.  In exchange for supporting this noble cause, particpants will receive a voucher for free admission to Kennywood. The event will take place from 10AM to 3PM in the Brentwood Library Community Room.

School District Seeking to Fill Critical Positions

Brentwood School District is hosting a job fair on August 7th from 12PM to 3PM in the high school library. Candidates are asked to bring a resume and two forms of identification. All state-mandated clearances must be attained before the formal date of hire. Substitute teaching positions are available, as well as full-time and part-time positions in paraprofessional, nursing, and clerical jobs. For more information, see the attached flyer.
