Plum High School cheerleaders are ready to show school spirit and raise money for a charitable student club.

The annual Plum Proud Day at 900 Elicker Road is set for Dec. 18, the anniversary of the founding of the community.

Plum was originally founded as a township in 1788 and was one of the first seven in Allegheny County. It was recognized as a borough in 1956.

“We are asking everyone to come together and show how proud they are to be a part of the Plum community by wearing purple and gold,” varsity cheerleading coach Amanda Anderson said.

Shirts will be on sale for $10 in various sizes from youth small all the way up to adult extra large. They cost $12 for 2XL and 3XL.

Orders are due by Nov. 24. Shirts can be picked up Dec. 9-10.

Questions about the effort can be emailed to [email protected]

More information’s posted on the district’s website under the Community News tab of the communication’s department.

A portion of the proceeds go toward Oblock Junior High School’s Reach Out Club.

The student-based community service club aids families from Plum and neighboring communities.

Reach Out also has an online campaign to help support its other projects. More information is available at

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.
