Greensburg pavilion registrations set for Feb. 5

Greensburg's recreation director expects to see some of the same faces when his department begins taking reservations for city pavilions next month.

“By the time we open, there's usually a good 25 people waiting, unless it's bitter cold,” Frank Lehman said. “There are some regulars — a lot for family reunions. The new ones are usually doing it for graduation parties.”

The department will take reservations on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 8 a.m. Feb. 5 at Kirk S. Nevin Arena.

The city has been taking reservations this way for the 25 years Lehman has worked in the department.

No advance reservations are accepted.

“It's kind of to be fair to everybody,” Lehman said. “To do it over the phone makes it too difficult. It's easier if we can get people to come in.”

Those waiting at the door fill out a form and are asked to pick two days for their outing, in case their first choice already has been selected,

Up for reservation are the Heather Lund and Robert Bell pavilions at Mt. Odin at a cost of $125 for city residents and $150 for others.

After the initial wave of registration, other people will come in later that day to make reservations, Lehman said.

Reservations for the Megan Smith Pavilion will be taken at the Mt. Odin Pro Shop. In April, call 724-834-2640 for rental availability.

Lynch Field pavilions can be reserved at a cost of $75 for city residents and $100 for nonresidents.

Recreation officials accept checks, cash or Master Card, Visa or Discover cards.

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.
