A sleepy summer? Not in Connellsville
It's summertime, and Fay-West volunteers are working hard to make sure that residents enjoy the season.
There are summertime festivals, such as church fairs, community and fire company gatherings, sporting events, the upcoming Fayette County Fair and Westmoreland Fair.
Just this past week, the popular John Woodruff 5K Run and Walk brought hundreds to Connellsville.
Today, the Connellsville Recreation Board is hosting its annual triathlon. There's also a cornhole tournament and musical entertainment — all at Yough Park.
Connellsville and Mt. Pleasant volunteers are organizing occasional movie nights — free of charge.
Also in Connellsville, the Lions Club is hosting concerts at Lions Square on Sunday. Mt. Pleasant and Scottdale are featuring a concert series throughout the summer.
There are also historical places of interest to visit this summer, including nearby Fort Necessity in Farmington, Crawford's Cabin in Connellsville and Fort Ligonier.
And let's not forget the activities scheduled at local libraries this summer.
Connellsville's Carnegie is hosting reading programs for youth, teens and adults. Nearby Dunbar, Scottdale, Mt. Pleasant and Brownfield libraries are hosting reading events.
So, we shouldn't hear people say they're bored this summer — certainly not in the Fay-West area.
TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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 â 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.
