Mimosas and musicals were on the menu when the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera Guild gathered for lunch on Aug. 6 at LeMont restaurant on Mt. Washington.

The Guild, now in its 59th year, honored this year's 11 recipients of the Constance T. Rockwell, Dolores and Walter Bold and the Charity Randall Foundation Scholarship.

Neal Bechman, Ryan Borgo, Areo Keller, Kyley Klass, Sarah Krempasky, Hannah Lane, Amy Russell, Jenna Scannelli, Annastassia Stewart, Zane Travis and Michael Zak each received $4,000 scholarships to pursue their voice, drama or dance education at the college of their choice.

“They are kids today, but we are going to see their names in lights,” said Patti Matty, chairwoman of the Guild's board. “They have such a passion. We have to encourage them to pursue these careers.”

Also honored at the luncheon were the three-generation family team of Moira Davison, her son George Davison and her granddaughter Morgan Davison, who co-chaired the 59th annual Pittsburgh CLO Guild Ball on June 7 in the Westin Convention Center Hotel ballroom, Downtown.

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.
