Usually a jolly good time, the annual Christmas party at the Greensburg Art Center had a tinge of melancholy this year.

That’s because the Dec. 9 event was also a bon voyage to center denizens Renie and Don Pollock .

Renie Pollock, longtime organization president, and husband Don, often seen tending bar at the receptions, are moving to Texas to be closer to family members.

Artist and art center member Susan Kiren will take over the leadership post.

Always well attended, the party drew an exceptionally large crowd this year, a testament to the local art community’s regard for the Pollocks, who came in Texas-style cowboy hats for the occasion.
