Pitcairn Patter: Camp G to host Steelers-Browns tailgate party Sunday
The Steelers will go up against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, and Camp G is having a tailgate party to cheer them to a victory.
The doors will open at noon at the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard, and the game will be televised at 1 p.m. There will be food, beer, raffles and door prizes.
Tickets are $15 in advance and can be purchased by calling 412-443-9233 or 412-651-5932, or you can get them for $20 each at the door.
Anyone age 21 or older is invited to attend and join in all the fun.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will help the organization offset the cost of camp for local girls this summer.
Our town lost a pillar of the community when George Myers died Friday after a brief illness.
He was Pitcairn's borough manager for 33 years and served in the position until he retired in the mid-1990s.
Many will remember that when you walked into his office, there was no computer, just a desk piled high with binders and papers, but George knew where everything was and could put his hands on borough information in no time.
Many called him “Mr. Pitcairn” because of his knowledge of the town and his presence as the emcee at many dinners and functions.
He was an active member in the Center Avenue United Methodist Church, a member of the Pitcairn Lions Club and Masons Valley Lodge 613, and a volunteer at Meals-on-Wheels.
He was a fixture at the Memorial Day ceremonies, where he made introductions and acted as the emcee, something he did so well.
He also was a supporter of Boy Scout Troop 51 for many years, as well as the citizenship counselor.
Scouts in the community looked to him for help on their merit badges.
George contributed much to our community.
He will be missed but not forgotten because his gentle manner, knowledge, faith and kindness touched so many of us.
The borough's Old-Fashioned Christmas celebration is just around the corner, and some lucky boy or girl will get to light the tree.
Any boy or girl who lives in town and is in kindergarten through the fourth grade is eligible for the contest.
Just pick up an entry form at Phil's Pharmacy or Joe's Butcher Shop on Broadway or at the borough office on Sixth Street.
Contestants must be available on Dec. 1 to accompany Santa to the Park Building at 2 p.m. and again at 5:30 for the tree-lighting ceremony.
Entries must be received by Wednesday.
There still are some tables available for the Craft Fair and Bake Sale that will be held at the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard on Saturday.
Tables are only $10, and any crafter, baker or organization is invited to participate.
Hours for the fair are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
To reserve a table, call Cheryl at 412-856-9191.
