Greensburg Country Club was dressed for the season April 15 during Visions of Springtime to benefit the Westmoreland County Blind Association.

The table centerpieces were daffodils,tulips and hydrangeas, painted yellow by Kelly Cervi of the Wedding Boutique in Greensburg. There were tables brimming with pink and green candies and flower-shaped sweets from Cupcake Crazy Bakery and More in Mt. Pleasant.

Dinner was followed by dancing to the music of James Kendall Productions of Pittsburgh, plus raffles and games of chance.

The blind association employs physically and intellectually challenged persons through its document destruction program, while the blind and visually impaired work on products for the Department of Defense, hospitals and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

Up next: the 14th annual WCBA golf outing June 10 at Greensburg Country Club. For more information, call 724-837-1250, ext. 12.

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.
