• If you have never heard a choral concert in the beautiful sanctuary of this church, now is the time. Choral groups love to perform there, where the music reverberates from 40-foot-high stone architecture with sound that is beautiful and moving.

There is no admission cost for either of these incredible concerts. A free-will offering will be accepted. Refreshments will be served after each concert. Please plan to attend any or all of these very special Easter season events. You will be warmly welcomed.

• The Perry-Lower Tyrone Class of 1957 reunion committee will meet at Grille 51 at 5:30 p.m. April 24. Final plans are being made for the 57th class reunion on June 28 at Cedar Creek Park. The class will hold a pizza party at the Sons of Italy on June 27.

• The Lower Tyrone Men will hold its biannual meeting on April 26 at Miedel's Restaurant in Connellsville. The time is 9 a.m. for breakfast. This from group coordinator Ron Enos: “Some women asked me if they could attend. I thought about it and could not find one reason why women would not be welcome. This is a time for everyone who would like to join us and have a good time talking about the old days. Growing up in Lower Tyrone and Dawson was quite an experience and there are many stories still out there. I encourage everyone to bring along any old pictures or memorabilia to share with the group. There will be a pre-showing of the 2014 DVD that will be officially out in early June. It is hoped to have copies for sale at $5 and will go to a nonprofit organization at the choosing of the Lower Tyrone Men. Hope to see you there! For more information, call 877-443-1910 or email enosr@bellsouth.net.”

• Vanderbilt United Methodist Church will hold a community flea market from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 9 and 10. There will be baked goods and soup and sandwiches available for purchase. You can set up a table for $10 and sell whatever you want, toys, clothing, household items, linens, etc. To reserve a table, call Lizzy Hanan at 724-529-2546 or Patti Lint at 724-529-2368.

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.
