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.
