A group from the Westmoreland Historical Society gathers to celebrate the 282nd birthday of Maj. Gen. Arthur St. Clair at St. Clair Park in Greensburg, on Tuesday, March 19, 2019.

The Westmoreland Historical Society is accepting nominations for the annual Arthur St. Clair Historic Preservation Award.

The award honors individuals or organizations that have made a “significant and sustainable” contribution to the preservation of Westmoreland County’s historic places, documents, records or stories, the society said.

Nominations can be submitted by downloading the form at westmorelandhistory.org or by using the following format: one page containing the nominee’s name, address and phone number; the nominator’s name, address and phone number; and a concise and specific description of the nominee’s accomplishments.

Nominations will be accepted via regular mail, personal delivery to the WHS office at 809 Forbes Trail Road, Greensburg, PA 15601, or email to [email protected]. Deadline is 5 p.m. Aug. 15.

The 2019 awards will be presented at the 20th annual Arthur St. Clair Historic Preservation Awards Dinner on Oct. 23 at Rizzo’s Banquet Hall in Crabtree.

Recipients of the 2018 awards were Olga Herbert, founding executive director of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor; the Independent Battalion Westmoreland County Pennsylvania; and the Latrobe Community Revitalization Program’s Design Team.

The award is named in honor of Founding Father Arthur St. Clair, a major general in the Continental Army, president of Congress under the Articles of Confederation and the first governor of the Northwest Territory.

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.
