Pitcairn Fire Company No. 2 keeps fish fry going each week

| Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013, 9:01 p.m.

The members of Pitcarin Fire Company No. 2 are holding their Five-Alarm Fish Fry every Friday during Lent.

And they're serving more than fish. Dinner choices are a fish sandwich, shrimp in a basket or chicken strips for $8. There also is a 10-piece pierogi dinner for $7.50.

All dinners include two sides. Sides include fries, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw and haluski. Individual sides are sold for $3 each.

For lighter appetites, a la carte items are available. Choices are a fish sandwich or shrimp for $6 each, five pierogies for $4.50, and cheese sticks and macaroni-and-cheese bites for $4 each.

A $5.50 child's meal includes three chicken strips and a side.

The kitchen opens at 4 p.m., and orders can be placed by calling 412-856-5630. Call-ahead orders are for takeout only. They can be picked up at the firehouse at 720 Brinton Ave. Free delivery is available in Pitcairn.


The Pitcairn Woman's Club's annual “Saturday Nite at the Auction” fundraiser will be held March 23 in the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard.

The event will include a buffet dinner, wine, beer and a live-bidding auction.

Those attending will have the opportunity to bid on a number of new items, including theater tickets, sports memorabilia, restaurant certificates and more.

The donation is $10. To buy advance tickets, call 412-856-7294 or 412-651-5933.

Proceeds will benefit the club's 2012-13 budget, which includes donations to the Girl Scouts, Meals on Wheels, the Pitcairn Food Pantry, scholarships, Mohawk Football, the Pitcairn Baseball/Softball Association and Propel Pitcairn.

Upcoming Events

• The borough parks and recreation committee will sponsor a free movie night March 22.

• The parks and recreation committee will hold an Easter egg hunt March 30, and Camp G will sponsor a “Lunch with the Bunny,” as well, that day.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
