John Paul Plaza, at 1005 Herron Avenue (often referred to around the neighborhood as “the highrise”), is a Christian living facility for low-income, elderly residents. The facility, which opened in 1982, was built to allow Polish Hill residents who couldn’t stay in their homes to still remain in the neighborhood.
This year is John Paul Plaza’s 30th anniversary, and they are planning a few events to celebrate. Coming up this Sunday, September 23 is a fundraising spaghetti dinner. The event also features a bake sale and a wine basket raffle. They will be serving from 12:30 – 4:00 p.m. in the John Paul Plaza dining room. Pre-sale tickets are $8.00, $9.00 at the door. For children 12 and younger, tickets are $5.00.
Coming up next month: a concert with Johnny Angel and the Halos, on October 21. For more information on these events, or to learn more about John Paul Plaza, call them at 412.683.5850.
