The Verona Chamber of Commerce is ready to rock and roll with its third-annual Community Day coming up.

The daylong event will feature Classic Brew Band, a five-piece band that covers classic rock and roll songs “from the vinyl and cassette era of rock-n-roll,” according to the band’s website.

“We always change the entertainment each year,” said Patti Tumminello, the event’s organizer.

Another change is the omission of the dunk tank, an addition that was hit during last year’s event.

“We couldn’t get anyone to do it this year because all the men got bruises on their knees and legs last year,” Tumminello said.

In its place is a glorified bounce house that adults can enjoy, she said.

“It has basketball stuff and a climbing wall inside it,” Tumminello said.

For food, expect to choose from three food trucks from around the area. Tumminello said Wicked Ribs N’at of Cheswick will be there, as well as KDog’s-n-Nat of McKeesport and Pittsburgh Taco. For dessert, Pappy’s Kettle Corn of Intercourse, Pennsylvania will be there.

“We have great food, great music, lots of vendors,” Tumminello said. “It should be a good day.”

She said the free event is rain or shine.

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.
