Sharpsburg residents can play a role in naming the 13th Street boat ramp.

Suggestions will be collected at the annual Guyasuta Days Festival this summer.

Council then will decide the winner.

A prize will be awarded to the winning suggestion.


Sharpsburg is planning a fundraiser for the Sharpsburg Community Library on July 14 at the LeMont in Mt. Washington.

The event will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Details still are being finalized.

Officials are hoping for support from residents and local businesses.

Other fundraisers for the library, which is planning an expansion, will be held later in the year.


The Guyasuta Days Festival committee has made a $2,000 donation to the borough.

The money will be used for upkeep at Kennedy Park in Sharpsburg, which is the site for the annual event.

The festival committee donates money to various organizations each year.
