Building debuts Sunday with festivities

| Saturday, Sept. 7, 2002

The Ross Township Police Department's newly formed honor guard will present colors at the township's new 38,000-square-foot municipal center Sunday during the building's grand-opening celebration.

Ross police Chief Greg Tenos said the guard was formed in April with three officers and now is up to five. The guard will present the colors shortly before the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5 p.m.

The grand opening formally will recognize the opening of the $6 million building, which has been in use since last month.

The day-long event will start at 9:30 a.m. with the township's annual 5K and 10K races, which begin at Northway Mall's parking lot along McKnight Road.

The municipal center, 1000 Ross Municipal Drive at Ross Community Park, will open its doors at 10:30 a.m. Most of the day's events — including sports competitions and children's activities — will take place there or nearby. Free food will be available, and activities are free.

Pittsburgh doo-wop band Johnny Angel and the Halos will perform from 6 to 9 p.m. Fireworks from Pyrotechnico will be presented from 9 to 9:30 p.m.

The grand-opening celebration is expected to cost $25,000. Most of the money has come from private-business donations.

An article on Page B3 in some Friday editions of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review stated the wrong date for the event.

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.
