Choral concerts planned in Dawson church
If you have never heard a choral concert in the beautiful sanctuary of the Philip G. Cochran Memorial United Methodist 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. The Greater Scottdale Choral Society will perform at 7 p.m. Monday at the church. One week later on April 28, the Uniontown Chorale will perform. Each concert is approximately one hour long. There is no admission cost for either of these incredible concerts. A freewill offering will be accepted. Refreshments will be served after each concert. Please plan to attend any or all of these very special 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. Thursday. 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 email@example.com.”

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.
