Does hope spring eternal, or are we just eternally hoping for spring this year?

Either way, the Latrobe Art Center spurred our desire to replace the drab winter duds with something fun and flirty during the Art of Fashion II, presented April 20 at Latrobe Country Club.

Morning snow showers gave way to sun just as the event opened with socializing and accessory shopping.

A light but satisfying lunch of homemade soup and grilled chicken Caesar salad followed the presentation of new spring styles by Doncaster, Carabella, Sandra Cadavid and, for the sporting set, Ligonier Outfitters.

Welcoming remarks came from Gabrielle Nastuck, art center director. The ever-reliable and entertaining Jennifer Miele provided runway commentary.

Event organizers includedJoe Bellack, Georgia Teppert, Kathy Sobota and Nastuck.

Among committee members and patrons on the scene were Kim Kramer, Diana Kreiling, Dorothy Hufford, Lauren Condon, Nancy Bures, Christine Okonak, Kathy Rafferty, Pat Toy and Jan Sabatos.

Also seen: Theresa Rusbosin, Carole Higgins, Diane Sobota, Sandi Zitterbart, Beth Searfoss, Jill Briercheck, Phyllis Kluska, Jean Eiseman, Jacki Plummer, Carol Bayer, Kay Rowe, Carol Kave and Vicki Sackett.

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.
