Dawson council will meet on second Monday of month

| Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013, 8:54 p.m.

Regular monthly meetings of Dawson Borough Council will be held on the second Monday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Dawson Borough Building on Howell Street. All Dawson residents are welcome to attend any meeting.

Dawson Volunteer Fire Co. will continue to hold its regular monthly meetings on the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the fire station on Galley Street.

It's bingo time. Just a reminder that our area volunteer fire companies/departments host regular bingo games to help them raise funds to continue operations. Dawson Volunteer Fire Co. holds bingo at 7 p.m. Tuesdays and DL&V Fire Department of Vanderbilt holds its weekly bingo games at 6:45 p.m. Fridays. Please support these great groups in any way that you can. They are there for us when we need them, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and they not only need, but deserve, our continued support.

The Dawson/Lower Tyrone honor roll committee is planning for dedication of the Korean/Vietnam era monument in May or June. No exact date has been set, as weather and materials can alter the completion date. The committee is planning a dedication booklet to commemorate the installation and dedication. Commercial ads will be welcomed as well as private ads and sponsorship lines in the booklet. Ad space will be available by eighth page, quarter page, half page or full page. Hopefully, the program will feature a color photograph of the three monuments as well as a history of the original honor rolls and a chronology of the campaign to have the new monument erected. For information about the program booklet, call 724-529-7298. The committee wishes to thank everyone who has helped in any way in this community effort. The goal appears to be closer.

The Leisenring Presbyterian Church will hold its regular monthly food pantry from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Wednesday. Please keep in mind that volunteers and donations are always welcome.

Monthly food distributions for our area will take place on the following schedule: East Liberty Presbyterian Church of Vanderbilt and Produce for the People at the Fayette County fairgrounds both hold their food distribution programs on the second Thursday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon.

Volunteers and donations are always appreciated.

Frazier School District will hold an early dismissal on Friday. Dismissals will begin at 12:15 p.m. that day. Frazier School District will be in session Jan. 21, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This will be used as a weather make-up day.

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.
