Out & About: Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation Citizens Advisory Board's 14th annual Green Luncheon
What better way to honor supporters of Westmoreland County parks than in one of those parks — on the glorious last day of summer — with a feast of salads, grilled chicken, steak skewers and goat-cheese cheesecake?
More than 100 guests joined the Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation Citizens Advisory Board on Sept. 21 at the Twin Lakes Park expansion area in Hempfield for the 14th annual Green Luncheon and recognition program for businesses, organizations and individuals who give of their resources, time and talents to keeping the parks up and running and free for all to enjoy.
Welcoming guests, advisory board chairwoman Ann Nemanic reminded them that they could work off their lunch later with three loops around the upper lake and a loop around the lower lake, “which gets me my 10,000 steps.”
Among honorees (too numerous to mention them all) were Tom Dittman, Noel Grimm, Ron Patun and Karen Jurkovic, the 2017 Lewis Fellows recognized for outstanding service.
The luncheon was sponsored by Quatrini and Rafferty Attorneys at Law and catered by Chef Mark's Palate in Latrobe.
