2 Connellsville celebrations: City icons honored

| Friday, May 3, 2013, 8:57 p.m.

Rich in history, Connellsville should be proud.

This weekend, the city will celebrate the accomplishments of two longtime organizations. The Carnegie Free Library will conduct a birthday bash recognizing the organization's 110 years in the city.

And the Molinaro Band will put on a free community concert as it celebrates 100 years.

How great it is to celebrate such accomplishments.

The Carnegie Free Library is an asset to our Connellsville community. And for more than 100 years, it has offered sources of information for those seeking additional knowledge. It helps citizens improve their command of literacy through services and programs. It is there for everyone — students, parents, employees and consumers.

It is far more than just a book repository.

The Molinaro band has become a Connellsville tradition. It would not be a Memorial Day, Christmas, Halloween or Veterans Day parade without these dedicated marchers. For 100 years, the Molinaro family has led this volunteer group.

We encourage the community to support both organizations.

On Sunday, stop at the library for the birthday bash, which kicks off at noon. Then at 3 p.m., head over to the Porter Theater in the Connellsville Community Center and enjoy the music.

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.
