McAutumnFest Scheduled

After the Town of McCandless had to cancel this year’s Community Day earlier this month, the town announced McAutumnFest for Saturday, Oct. 20, from 1-7:15 p.m. at the Town Hall grounds on Grubbs Road.

The day will include vendors, crafters, performance acts and children’s activities. The day will conclude with a fireworks show at 7:15 p.m. Make sure you stop by our booth, where we will have valuable information about state programs and will be answering your questions. We hope to see you there!
In the Community


Last weekend, I attended the third annual Pour at the Park fundraiser benefiting the Allegheny County Parks Foundation. Thank you to Caren Glotfelty, the Allegheny County Parks Foundation executive director, for all that she does to support our parks and improve our community. The Allegheny County Parks Foundation supports the improvement, preservation and restoration of the parks throughout the county. You can learn more about the foundation on its website.
Do-Not-Call List Information

The national and state Do-Not-Call lists allow consumers to avoid most unwanted telemarketing calls. The national list is overseen by the Federal Trade Commission and the state list is overseen by the Office of Attorney General. For more information, please visit the Pennsylvania Office of Consumer Advocate’s website.

To cut down on the most calls, it is best to register for both the national and state lists. The national list is permanent, while the state list will keep your number for five years from the date of registration.
Calls that may get through the state do-not-call list include:
  • Calls that you have requested in some manner.
  • Calls made by businesses to existing customers or to consumers who have done business with the company in the past 12 months.
  • Calls made on behalf of political groups or candidates.
  • Calls for debt collection.
  • Calls from tax-exempt charitable organizations.
  • Calls from veterans organizations.
Calls that may get through the national do-not-call list include:
  • Calls from organizations with which you have established a business relationship.
  • Calls for which you have given prior written permission.
  • Calls which are not commercial-oriented or do not include unsolicited advertisements.
  • Calls by, or on behalf of certain tax-exempt nonprofit organizations.
Senior Health Fair/Flu Shot Clinic

We want to remind seniors to attend our Senior Health Fair/Flu Shot Clinic on Friday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Community College of Allegheny County North Campus. There is a limited supply of flu shots. Please call our office at 412-369-2230 to make an appointment.

The Health Fair is a great opportunity for senior citizens and their families to access valuable information about programs for seniors, safety tips, health care, nutrition and various other state programs available to them.

During the event, seniors and their families can also receive assistance applying for many of the state-operated programs, such as PACE and PACENET prescription drug programs and Property Tax/Rent Rebates.

We welcome your questions about any state issues that are impacting you and our community and look forward to meeting you. The Community College of Allegheny County North Campus is located at 8701 Perry Highway in Pittsburgh.
