Four local community members, including a nonprofit, a business, a woman leader and a chamber member, will be honored during the annual Westmoreland Chamber of Commerce awards luncheon next month.

On Oct. 10, Westmoreland Children First will be named nonprofit of the year, Blue Sky Sign Co., located in Greensburg, business of the year, Lisa Frederick will receive the ATHENA award and Jessica Urbanik will be named chamber member of the year.

Westmoreland Children First, located in Greensburg, is an advisory board of directors that works to assist the Westmoreland County Children’s Bureau in caring for children and families in need. Officials from the nonprofit posted on their Facebook page expressing gratitude at the chamber’s support.

Lisa Frederick, president of Unity Printing in Unity Township, will be presented the ATHENA award, which is awarded to those who have achieved professional excellence, contributed to improving the quality of life in the community and actively assisted others in realizing their full leadership potential.

Frederick has a bachelor’s degree in business management from Saint Vincent College.

Jessica Urbanik, who was named chamber member of the year, is the director of community relations and education at SecondHalf Coach Wealth Management in Latrobe.

Urbanik has a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in radio and television from California University of Pennsylvania and master’s degree in corporate communications from Duquesne University.

This year’s event, which runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Ramada Hotel and Conference Center, is themed after Stone Soup, a folk tale about hungry people and a creative stranger. According to the chamber’s website, each chamber member has different talents that help enhance life in Westmoreland County.

After the awards luncheon, officials will host the annual business meeting where newly elected board members will be named. An overview of the year’s accomplishments will be presented.

Registration, which must be completed by Sept. 30, can be done on the Westmoreland County Chamber of Commerce’s website. Tickets for a table of eight cost $280, individual registration for chamber members cost $35 and individual registration for non-chamber members costs $50.

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.
