Looking for things to do in Plum and Oakmont this week?

Here are some ideas:

  • Oakmont Lions Club presents its inaugural Night Out 7 p.m. Tuesday at Riverside Park. The event is to honor the community’s first responders. Free food and drink will be available.
  • Oakmont Carnegie Library at 700 Allegheny River Blvd. hosts a month-long exhibit of photography by James Sabulsky of Lower Burrell. The exhibit features photos of small towns and historic sites of Pittsburgh, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia to name a few.
  • Tai chi with Jeri McCutcheon is set for 10-11 a.m. Thursday at the Oakmont library. It is open to all levels of experience. The class is designed to reduce stress, improve balance, build coordination and refine posture. Participants should wear comfortable clothing.

More information about Oakmont library’s free programs is available at oakmontlibrary.org or by calling 412-828-9532.

  • Plum Community Center at 499 Center New Texas Road hosts a yoga class 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.
  • Line dancing classes are offered 10-11:30 a.m. Thursdays at the community center.
  • Presbyterian SeniorCare Network Executive Director Carrie Chiusano will lead a lunch and learn about dementia and hands-on care at the center 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

  • Michael Griffin, an escape artist featured on the show America’s Got Talent, will perform at the Oaks Theater 7:30 p.m. Friday at 310 Allegheny River Blvd. in Oakmont. He possesses the uncanny ability to free himself from any extreme escape challenge known to man, from water-sealed oil drums, an assortment of complex police restraints, to mental hospitals, coffins, and other perilous escapes. Tickets range from $18 to $24 and are available online at bit.ly/2AQtj3D .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
