A warm spring day, sundresses and hats, a champagne reception on the Greensburg Country Club veranda.

Put them all together and you have the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra Hat Luncheon.

“The Hat Luncheon is our most popular event,” said Linda Assard, a founding member of its planning committee and a symphony board member.

It's little wonder, given the ingredients, that the 16th rendition of the soiree, held on June 3, drew upward of 125 fabulously arrayed ladies and a few handsome gentlemen.

A team of servers including head bartender Bob Sekora, Tom Kohut, Mud Kluska, Pat Condo, Noah Henson, David Paplauckas and Paul Nickoloff kept the champagne flutes coming.

Following the reception, the ladies adjourned indoors for photo ops, raffles and a meal.

Co-chairs were Karen Kohut and Diane Nickoloff.

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.
