There's a wonderfully talented woman named Pat Jennette who lives not too far from me, in Imperial, PA. Pat started her own business, Jennette Communications Group that publishes the Allegheny West magazine, and also, the Airport Area Community Phone Directories for Moon, Montour and West Allegheny in the Greater Pittsburgh Area.
The Allegheny West Magazine-Moon Edition-is published six times per year, mailed and distributed free to 15,000 residents and businesses in Crescent, Moon, and adjacent areas.
"The people of our community never cease to amaze me. What wonderful neighbors you have! Many of your neighbors and friends are featured in this issue. Read about Mim Bizic of Moon, who has created an awesome Web site dedicated to her Serbian heritage."
ABOUT THE COVER:
Vol. 4, Issue 24, September 2009 had this caption on its cover:
"Milana "Mim" Bizic of Moon is on a mission to preserve her Serbian heritage. Read her story on page 33. Photo by Pat Jennette.
Pat's goal for the magazine was to create a positive, good news publication for the homes and businesses of our area, that would connect communities, promote people, heighten awareness about the Pittsburgh airport region, and build pride in the western suburbs of Allegheny County.
She succeeded well in her goal, as people across the world of Serbian descent are grateful to her for the posting of this article!
Pat had this photo of Pgh. Steeler great Franco Harris (#32!) and Nicky Jovonovich in a previous issue of her Allegheny West Magazine as aTEASER or coming attraction.
The caption read something like: "Franco Harris knows about the rescue of the 500 U.S. airmen, do you?"
Two tremendous fellas with one great book!
Wonderful Pat Jennette, editor
We sing "Zivela!" to Pat!
Mno ga -lje-ta,
Long may you live, PAT!

Background: Started Allegheny West Magazine in August 1999 with one edition. The free, direct-mail magazine publishes three editions that reach 40,000 residents in 14 communities in western Allegheny County.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Dwight White presented Jennette with the award at the group's annual event at the Hilton Pittsburgh and Towers, Downtown. NAWBO gives the award to honor volunteers across the region "who have made organizations an asset to the community and who, through their involvement, make communities viable and prosperous."
Quote: "It is an honor to receive this award from NAWBO. They are an outstanding organization and to be recognized for my work in the community by such a wonderful organization is very special."
Here's another issue of my father's magazines AMERICAN SERB LIFE that carried the story of the rescue in 1948 from OSS Captain Nick Lalich's day by day diary.
