Moore is the association’s event chairwoman.

The Crescent Hills Civic Association in Penn Hills will host a Holiday House Tour event on Dec. 8.

Those who take the tour will be welcomed to hosts’ historic homes on Crescent Hills, Earlwood and Spring Grove roads, Glenfield Drive and Hathaway Court.

The Crescent Hills neighborhood, bordered by Saltsburg, Frankstown and Lime Hollow roads, features different styles of homes that were built in the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s, according to the Crescent Hills Civic Association. The neighborhood takes pride in its hospitality.

“Events such as this are nothing new to this 85-year-old Penn Hills community,” the association said in a news release. “The community’s civic association has long been a source of connectivity for residents. It hosts regular activities and events for kids and adults, fostering the kind of neighborliness and community pride which are today hard to come by.”

The tour’s final stop, on Glenfield Drive, will include coffee, cider and various treats to warm visitors. There will also be homemade crafts and live wreaths and greens available for purchase.

The tour will be from 1 to 5 p.m. and tickets are available for $17 until Nov. 30. Prices will increase to $20 on Dec. 1 but tickets will still be available to purchase until the day of the event.

Tickets can be purchased on the Crescent Hills Civic Association’s website, They can also be purchased over the phone by calling Christine Miller at 412-793-1940.

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.
