Vintage Fashion Show planned for March 15
Cathy Kumor, yoga instructor, and her dedicated group of Saturday students — of all ages and abilities — have partnered with the FRIENDS of Carnegie Free Library to keep the auditorium project moving forward.
Since October 2011, Kumor has given her time and talent to teach yoga without charging students.
The students were asked to leave a small donation at every Saturday class whether it was taught at the library auditorium or Yough River Park.
Kumor and her band of loyal students have purchased round and rectangular tables plus matching chairs for the auditorium. The FRIENDS matched the donation and the auditorium will now be available for birthday parties, wedding and baby showers, conferences, programs, meetings, vendor sales, lifestyle events and more.
“This selfless action is karma yoga in its purest form and everyone is a winner in this circle of giving. Cathy continues to teach yoga several days a week in the library auditorium. The classes are an exhilarating activity for mind and body,” said Karen Macko, FRIENDS member.
Class schedules can be obtained in Cafe Carnegie.
If you are interested in renting the auditorium, at a nominal fee, for an event, contact Casey Sirochman at the library for more scheduling information and availability by calling 724-628-1380.
On March 15, a Vintage Fashion Show will be held in the library auditorium with all the new tables and chairs. Johanna Harden will be partnering with the FRIENDS to display her private collection of vintage clothing.
Harden narrates the fashion show and shares her knowledge of the time period with colorful and humorous stories. Tickets are $20 each and will include an extensive lunch buffet.
Cafe Carnegie will be selling tickets for this event.
“There will be a limited number of tickets sold, so bring your friends, a wish for a 16-inch waist and your desire for a sinful dessert,” Macko said.
The Vintage Fashion Show seating sold out last year.
