The District Association (DA) is a community organization founded in 1928 for residents of Fox Chapel, O’Hara, Aspinwall, Blawnox, Sharpsburg, Indiana, and Harmar boroughs and townships. They initiate and implement various community projects that are not tax-supported but enhance and beautify the community.
To continue with these noble efforts, they rely on the support of residents. A family membership costs $35 per year. The funds raised through memberships, and the Fox Chapel Follies enable them to play an active role in member communities.

They aspire to expand their membership to include all their friends and neighbors to continue their good work. The DA’s biggest fundraiser, the Fox Chapel Follies, will be held again in 2024!

For those members of the community who may not have heard the news, Foxwall EMS Chief Tony Cuda has passed away. His private funeral will be on Friday, November 3. There will be a procession originating in Shaler Township, passing through Etna and into Sharpsburg along N Main and Main Street before moving into Aspinwall and beyond. The procession will begin at 11am.
To honor Chief Cuda, it is requested that community members step out of their homes and businesses to support Tony’s family and fellow public safety workers. Suggestions include saluting as the procession drives past, making posters, honking horns, or simply waving flags or hands. Tony’s family and fellow public safety workers are heartbroken and will benefit greatly from as much support as possible. Foxwall EMS thanks you for your consideration.
