O’Hara community center cuts summer hours

Lauri Ann West Community Center will adjust its summer hours, beginning May 24. The site offers plenty of children’s programming throughout June, July and August.

Lauri Ann West Community Center will adjust its hours for summer beginning May 24.

The site along Powers Run Road in O’Hara will shorten hours Fridays through Sundays because usage drops significantly, officials said.

“Our member’s preferences change during the warm summer months,” Jamie Rhoades, director of development, said.

“People have busy schedules and are spending more time outdoors.”

Summer hours at the center will be 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Fridays, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. The schedule continues through Labor Day.

Hours remain 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.

Officials tested a shortened schedule in 2018, saying they wanted to achieve the best balance between the needs of the members and staff.

Rhoades said the facility still will offer a full slate of programs through the summer months.

In addition to day camp for children ages 3 to 12, there will be specialty sessions with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, UKI Soccer, Gemini Theater, Scoring Factory, CYM Keyboarding and Soccer Shots.

“We’re excited to offer a lot of new summer experiences like Drone 101 Camp, Mad Science Presents Coding Robots and nature camps at Squaw Valley Park,” Rhoades said.

The center is closed on May 27 for Memorial Day, July 4 and Sept. 2 for Labor Day.

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.
