By the time Bunny Giffin and Gina Varrone left the Positively Posh! vendor fair on Saturday, their credit cards were smokin'!

At least that's what event committee memberDottie Staffen said, and it wouldn't have been a surprise.

The third annual pre-holiday shopping spree, hosted by the Latrobe Area Hospital Aid Society in the St. Vincent College Fred Rogers Center, had just about anything a girl could need to look good, feel good and smell good — plus party and home supplies and even those special accessories to complete a man's best outfit. Lunch was available, too.

“There's so much here, it's sort of overwhelming,” said shopperSusan Endersby.

“It just keeps growing,” agreed event chairwoman Elizabeth Naidu, and that's a good thing, because proceeds will benefit critical-care patient services at Excela Health Latrobe Hospital.

Committee members included Betty Ann McHugh, Phyllis Ruffner, Jane McKenzie, Donna McClure, Diana Kreiling, Debby Newingham, Linda Hayden, Jean Watson, Dottie Staffen and Mary Provance.

Seen at St. Vincent: Susan Eiseman, Linda Miller, Ann Macdonald, Barbara Ferrier, Susannah Calvo, LuAnn Mills, Patty Lucarelli, Ellen Curtis, Jani Rybacki, Mary Lynn Eisenstat, Debbie Kelley, Renay Krouse, Kim Forsyth, Susan Ott, Maureen Milchak, Doris Wood, Brenda Haberlen, Kathleen Emmer andTom McClure.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
