  • A former Asbury Place resident and lifelong rider of Port Authority buses will be honored Friday with a PAT Bus Stop sign in her honor.

    At 1:30 p.m. Friday, the official blue and white bus stop sign, reading "In memory of Dorothy Haberland," will be unveiled at Asbury Place, along with a wooden bench donated by the Asbury Heights Auxiliary.

    Suzanne Smith, regional director of the Southwestern Regional Office of the Greater Pittsburgh Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, a representative from the Port Authority and Haberland's family and friends will attend the ceremony.

    Asbury Place, owned and operated by the United Methodist Services for the Aging/Asbury Heights, is located at 700 Bower Hill Road.
