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.
