Runners to take to Pitcairn streets Saturday

| Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The Pitcairn/Monroeville Lions Club 5K Run for Sight and 1 Mile Fun Walk will fill the streets of Pitcairn with runners and walkers Saturday.

More than 100 runners and walkers will line up at 10 a.m. at the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard for the start of the race. They'll proceed down Broadway, up Wall Avenue and continue past Sugar Camp.

Awards will be presented to the top three male and female 5K finishers and to various age-group winners. No prizes will be awarded to walkers.

There will be food for participants before and after the race.

Participants can register at the Park Building the day of the race. The registration fee for runners is $17 and $15 for walkers. Proceeds will benefit people with impaired vision.


It was a boo-tiful day for a Halloween parade in Pitcairn on Saturday. Many girls and boys — and some parents, too — donned their costumes and participated in Fire Company No. 2's annual event.

Prizes were awarded to the following children for their great costumes: Dustin Sehswer, pumpkin scarecrow; Locklyn Amburst, lamb; and Brayden Baumhardt, farmer.

After the parade, the children were invited into the Park Building for the Parks and Recreation Committee's harvest festival, at which many community organizations handed out treats and provided activities.

Congratulations to Patrick Sproull, who was the winner of Camp G's Pumpkin of Fun.

The rec committee would like to thank everyone who helped to make the event fun for everyone.

Hoagie sale

The local Rainbow Girls chapter is selling hoagies, with delivery set for Saturday.

Turkey and Italian hoagies are available for $6 each.

Both types are topped with American and provolone cheese and come on a Barone's Italian bun.

Pickles, onions and lettuce are included and bagged separately.

To order, call 412-818-2161.


The Pitcairn Democratic Committee will hold a Meet the Candidates rally Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard.

The rally gives citizens the opportunity to meet the endorsed candidates who will be on the Democratic ballot on Tuesday.

There will be music, sandwiches, refreshments and door prizes.

A $5 donation will be collected at the door.

Thank you

Members of the Pitcairn Woman's Club thank everyone who attended their Pancake Breakfast last Sunday.

Proceeds from the breakfast will support the club's scholarship program.

Congratulations to Joann Pomper, who won the Tastefully Simple basket.

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.
