Sprinkling rain didn’t deter more than 100 Guild members, family, friends and interns from attending a tailgate party and a Pirates game (with fireworks!) on Saturday, July 19.
Just like 2013, the first time we tried this event, the Pirates went into extra innings but unlike that 16-inning losing affair, the Bucs were victorious in the 11th inning.
The overwhelming success of the tailgate/Pirates game (in lieu of the long-standing Guild picnic) means it will become an annual tradition. We’re working on refining the ticket purchase (in hopes we’re all in the same section) and on getting sunny weather!

About 25 guild members and kin volunteered to plant trees Oct. 26 and Nov. 2 in Highland Park and in South Oakland, near Panther Hollow.
Members of The Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh, along with volunteers from other organizations, helped plant hundreds of native trees and shrubs over the two weekends, beautifying public areas and helping to rebuild forested areas that had been overtaken by invasive species. (Guild leadership chose a tree-planting project, from among other options, partly because the newspaper industry consumes so many trees.)
The outings were organized by Pittsburgh Cares and the Western Pennsylvania conservancy.
