Fellow Maulanians,

The new year has started and we are moving quickly through the cold winter months. Looking forward to an early spring and a bright summer in the city of Pittsburgh, the venue for our annual MAMCOAANA meeting.

We, the Pittsburgh planning committee has made it our mission to assemble you together under one roof. There has been plenty of activity on our WhatsApp groups and it would be fitting to carry on these riveting discussions in person.
It also would be an opportunity to discern what the city of Pittsburgh has to offer.

Our venue Sheraton hotel is in the heart of iconic station square Station Square.

It sits across from the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela and the Ohio rivers. Our Friday evening will be spent on the Gateway Clipper cruising blissfully across these three rivers. There are plenty of local attractions from our venue.

Indulge yourself in riding one of the original 1877 cable cars on a 400 foot incline to the top of mount Washington with majestic views of the city. Duquesne Incline.

Hop across the river to the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers at the old Heinz field or take the kids to the world famous Carnegie science center.

Up ahead to the right across the Mon river are the corporate headquarters of the two health care giants. UPMC and Highmark are the tallest buildings in the downtown area.

The surrounding area has been revamped with some of the finest restaurants and premier shops. The area boasts of some of the exceptional centers of performing arts. Heinz hall owned by the Pittsburgh symphony and The Benedum center.

The world-famous Carnegie museums belong to the city of Pittsburgh including The Andy Warhol Museum, Carnegie Museum of art, Carnegie Museum of natural history and the science center.

Oakland area of Pittsburgh houses the university of Pittsburgh and the eminent Carnegie Mellon university.

Cathedral of learning commissioned in 1921 by Pitt chancellor stands tall at 535 feet and is the second tallest academic building in the world. It houses classrooms for the students of Pitt and the world-renowned nationality rooms.

Phipps conservatory and botanical gardens is a Pittsburgh historic landmark listed in the national register of historic places built in 1893.

For those who would like to venture out east of Pittsburgh, there is the famous Fallingwater house designed by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 in the Laurel Highlands of southwest Pennsylvania built partly over a waterfall.

Clearly Pittsburgh has a lot to offer and sightseeing aside , opportunity to meet some old friends and make new ones will be treasured forever
