Celebrating days of yore, the Westmoreland County Historical Society presented the 15th Annual Arthur St. Clair Historic Preservation Awards during an Oct. 29 dinner in Rizzo’s Banquet Hall in Crabtree.

Our rich heritage remains dear to the hearts of many, as evidenced by the attendance of movers and shakers from other area historical societies, heritage and cultural groups and art and history museums, along with just plain old history buffs.

“There are a lot of very important people here,” observed dinner committee member Bruce Shirey, who is also the Baltzer Meyer Historical Society president.

They gathered to celebrate this year’s award recipients:

Charles A Fagan III, long active in various capacities at Fort Ligonier and an expert on the early life and times of George Washington.

Norwin Historical Society, represented by President Carl Huszar, for publication of “Irwin, Then and Now,” in support of the borough’s sesquicentennial celebration.

• The late Richard M. Scaife, for philanthropy over more than four decades to a wide variety of historic preservation projects. The posthumous award was accepted by the publisher’s longtime attorney and friend, H. Yale Gutnick.

Presenting the awards were WCHS Executive Director Lisa Hays and board chairman Robert Myers. Dinner committee chairwoman was Mary Ellen Miller.
