There’s an old hymn that says, “Count your blessings, name them one by one.”

Supporters of the St. Anne Home in Greensburg have been doing that for a long time, as evidenced by the 23rd Annual Harvest of Blessings dinner, held Nov. 2 in the Saint Vincent College Fred Rogers Center.

The home, a ministry of the Felician Sisters of North America, provides a continuum of care to its senior residents and their families, and the annual event raises funds to support that mission.

Dinner guests were treated to the premieres of two new videos paying tribute to employees characterized as “superheroes” by Director of Development and Marketing Mary Dreliszak.

“We truly believe our employees are superheroes who go above and beyond the call of duty to serve our residents,” she said.

The dinner program was preceded by a social hour with raffles and silent auction and followed by a live auction. Lucky guests went home with designer purses, cash, gift cards, event and lottery tickets, housewares and home decor, golf packages and much, much more.

Event committee members included Dreliszak, CEO Jeffrey Long, Board Chairman John Kline, June Czarnecki, Suzanne and Mike Dominick, Vince Morich, Iva Munk, Stacey Winfield and Diana Yuhas.

Seen: Father Liber Ortega, Gretchen Kline, Lori Long, Henna Bautista, Mercedes Getto, Barth and Angie Getto, Tiffany Grimm, Jim Pennington, Carol Semo, Jim and Sherri Baker, Dennis and Debbie Coffen and David and Andrea Raimondo.

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.
