The 15th annual Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra Hat Luncheon was held June 4 at the Greensburg Country Club.

Half the fun is looking at the hats and learning their stories.

Karen Rich Douglas named her handmade chapeau “Hat Trick.” It was fashioned with black and gold ribbons and topped with a foil-covered Stanley Cup.

The fuchsia wide-brim hat Wendy Anton purchased from Nordstrom for her mother, June Anton, was too big. They used weather stripping to line the inside to make it fit perfectly.

The vintage hat Kaaren Tintori wore had a drawstring, so it adjusted to any size. She and Linda Austin got their toppers this spring at the WSO Cheap and Chic sale.

Linda Bennett bought her hat in Italy.

The event began with a mimosa reception and violin selections by WSO assistant principal Ramona Coppage and student Libby Krieger. The silent auction included an oil painting by Dennis Bruss.

Linda Assard welcomed guests, thanked sponsors and introduced co-chairwomen Diane Nickoloff and Karen Kohut.

Assard served on the committee with Tintori, Douglas, Jane Church, Mary Ann Fusco, Phyllis Kluska, Jan Taylor-Condo, Janie Belden, Linda Blum, Sheila Caramella, Lana Booher, Jill Briercheck, June Penta, Jo Ann Lightcap, Joan Stairs, Ellen Smail, Sharyn Sekora, JoEllen Numerick and Suzanna Masartis.

Champagne pourers were Paul Nickoloff, Pat Condo, Mud Kluska, Tom Kohut, Alex Kohut and Bob Sekora.

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.
