Mother Nature seems to agree with Latrobe BPW's Spring Tea
It was quite felicitous that the Latrobe Business and Professional Women's Club Spring Tea and Fashion Show coincided with the first truly spring-like day of this still relatively new year.
More than 220 ladies gathered March 9 at the Fred Rogers Center at St. Vincent College, eager to pack away the winter clothes and see what's new in warm-weather wear.
After lunching at tables decorated in fun and festive themes by their table hostesses, they sat back for the parade of fashions from Christopher & Banks, C.J. Banks and Dress Barn, accentuated with accessories from Aw Else Boutique, Thirty One and Silpada. Jennifer Miele was emcee.
Event chairwoman Jean Calabrace was pleasantly surprised to find that she had earned the honor of Latrobe BPW Woman of the Year, presented by chapter President Jackie Elliott for her outstanding service to the organization.
Special guest was Cathy Caccia of Greensburg, president of the Pennsylvania BPW.
Models included Elliott, Theresa Rusbosin, Kara Gaia, Madison Hantz, Amy Kerr, Cindy Strayer, Michelle Teague, Rae Ann Tronetti, Rebecca Zedrek, Sarah Zylka and Grace Henigin.
Also seen: Paula Maloney, Christina Sichi, April Henigin, Linda LeViere, Maureen Spitznogle, Lindsay Spitznogle, Michelle Zeni, Dana Marraccini, Connie Douglas, Tiffany McKlveen and Whitney Mullen.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
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.
