Out & About: Westmoreland County Historical Society Spring Frolic
It was all fun and games April 16 at Westmoreland County Courthouse during Westmoreland County Historical Society's Spring Frolic.
The theme of the eighth annual benefit was “20th Century Games.” A presentation explored the history of game playing. Some iconic games, such as Monopoly and Sorry!, were on display.
The halls of the courthouse rang with laughter, as guests played checkers, life-size chess, Keystone State Trivia and blackjack.
The evening began with a buffet by Chef Mark Henry, owner of Chef Mark's Palate in Latrobe. Henry prepared “fun foods,” such as Wisconsin cheddar soup garnished with popcorn, lamb sliders, grilled watermelon with gorgonzola and prosciutto and mini twice-baked potatoes. There were s'mores and cake pops for dessert. Music was by DJ J. Malls.
Event co-chairwomen were AshleyToth andJennifer Sopko.
