The Loyalhanna Watershed Association’s signature fundraiser reflects its mission of caring for the region’s land and water.

Its 35th Annual Art Auction Benefit, held Oct. 26 at Latrobe Country Club, offered patrons the opportunity to bid via live and silent auctions on 32 pieces of art by about two dozen well-known area artists. The theme was “Beauty of the Seasons,” and many pieces portrayed the beauty seen year-round in the Laurel Highlands.

“We have great art and a good crowd,” said LWA Executive Director Susan Huba.

Artists represented in the live auction led by Larry Hendrick were Lynne Lockhart, Dix Baines, Nora Thompson, Stuart Thompson, Leo E. Osborne, Claire Hardy and Rita Kambic Haldeman.

Guests gathered for dinner around tables with centerpieces variously reflecting each of the four seasons, courtesy of Bob and Sally Ambrose of Ridgeview Acres Farm near Stahlstown.

Event committee members included Tammy Colt, Cindy Danchuk, Nicole Danforth, Gary Gula, Cathy Johnston, Wink Knowles, Annie MacDougall, Donna Wenzel and Josh and Ellie Penatzer.

Seen: Rachel Knowles, Stephen Huba, Steve and Peggy Hasley, James and Dianne Berardi, Richard Danforth, Hugh and Nancy Brallier, Barbara and Gene Kravits, Steven LaRue and Miranda Dixon, Pat Slack, John and Michele Nagoda, Richard and Roxane Flickinger and Robert and Susan Endersbe.

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.
