Happy 4th of July Pittsburgh!

Pittsburgh fourth of July

This 4th of July will be our country's 234th birthday. A cause for celebration? Absolutely!

It’s a great time to celebrate living in the U.S.A., and especially in the Pittsburgh area! While the economy could be stronger, we have done much better than the rest of the country. Our home prices have been stable, our employment situation better than most, our city is full of great energy and we have roofs over our heads and food in our bellies. It’s worth being thankful for and it calls for a celebration!

Wondering what’s going on this weekend, well, wonder no more…
