V-E Day is the day (May 8) marking the Allied victory in Europe in 1945. The public is invited to join in a celebration of V-E Day on Tuesday, May 8 at 1:15 p.m. at Shaler North Hills Library.

The Glass City Swing Band will perform classic hits from the 40s and members of the VFW 9199 will be at the celebration, too. Enjoy snacks and book displays, share memories, and bring your World War II items to share with others. The event is free and no registration is required.

Robert Buckler donated an aluminum World War II plaque commemorating the Glenshaw/Shaler Area Home Front and its contributions towards the construction of an aircraft rescue boat. Celebrate what the plaque means to our community and remember those who served on the Home Front during the war. More importantly, what do you remember about the Glenshaw/Shaler Area war bond drive that raised funds for this aircraft rescue boat? Let us know!

Shaler North Hills Library is located at 1822 Mt. Royal Blvd. in Glenshaw. For more information to request or share, contact Sharon McRae at or at 412-486-0211.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
