Cheers to the staff at 84 Lumber who, on Oct. 7, donated care baskets to Washington Health Systems. The women-owned business provided donations to the hospital’s Women’s Center for patients battling breast cancer. The baskets were filled with various items, including a blanket, lotion, slipper socks, a hat, T-shirt and water bottle. The care baskets will be given to some of the patients during their treatment journeys. Staff from 84 Lumber, which has a location in Waynesburg, hand delivered the baskets, explaining how the donation was made in honor of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Cheers to Carmichaels’ Remmey Lohr, Uniontown’s Adena Rugola, Greensburg Central Catholic’s Meghan Zambruno and Brownsville’s Lindsay Sethman for qualifying for the PIAA Individual Golf Championships from the PIAA Western Regional held Tuesday at Tom’s Run Golf Course. Lohr continued to break new ground by qualifying for the boys Class AA championship after finishing second in the regional. Rugola tied for third in Class AAA, while Zambruno was alone in second place and Sethman tied for third in Class AA. The PIAA Championships will be held Monday and Tuesday at Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York.
Cheers to Ambroos, the newest “officer” on the city of Connellsville’s police force. The K-9, purchased through the efforts of so many in the community, was sworn in last week. Ambroos’ handler, Patrolman J. Tyler Garlick, said the force’s newest addition is already trained in narcotics detection and is working toward his patrol certification. At nearly 2 years old, the dog will be used not only to serve the city’s residents, but also everyone in Fayette County. Grants and numerous additional donations from businesses and private individuals made Ambroos’ purchase and training possible. It was another incredible example of the support within our community. We look forward to watching the area’s newest asset enhance police services.
Cheers to Angelo’s II Bar and Restaurant in Monongahela for bringing some spooky spirit to the area with a Halloween display that has captured the attention of national news outlets and people across the country. The restaurant’s Ghostbusters-themed lighted creation includes large, green tentacles poking out of windows and a large Stay Puft Marshmallow man atop the three-story building where the restaurant is housed along Third and West Main streets. It is always nice to see local folks participating in projects for the purpose of bringing enjoyment to area residents. This type of involvement is what makes our small communities even more close-knit and a wonderful, positive way to show the pride in where we live and work.
