New Leaside blog to pick brains

When Robyn Hochglaube of Astor Ave. was looking for a cleaning lady recently she had no resources where she could obtain advice, or in her words “pick the brains” of fellow Leasiders.

And so she created the Facebook page Leaside Community (which recently logged in its 366th member) where residents can find up-to-date information about school activities, sporting events and garage sales, as well as discuss the quality of services available.

Hochglaube also foresees it as a place where parents can seek general advice about businesses, babysitters, as well as buy, sell or trade gently worn sports equipment, and clothing.

In time Hochglaude plans to liaise with local businesses, especially along Laird, in hopes that they will also utilize the site.
