Umbrellas shielded patrons from the setting sun as they relaxed over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the patio July 14 at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

Featured performer for the monthly Art on Tap happy hour was Shirley Dragovich, lead singer of Gashouse Annie and the High Octane Band who sang and played guitar while representatives from Westmoreland Community Action educated attendees about the group’s mission to eliminate poverty and improve the conditions under which people live, learn and work.

The museum’s Richard M. Scaife Director/CEO Judith O’Toole, along with Janey Wensel and Steven Riley, helped customers in the Museum Shop, while friends Anita Manoli and Loute De St. Maurice spent some time catching up and shopping. Chief curator Barbara Jones mingled with guests.

Amy Faith and the Committee for the Westmoreland sold raffle tickets to benefit The Westmoreland’s educational programs, while John Faith sold the last tickets in his pocket to the July 20 Blind Pig Party at West Overton Village and Museum. Showing pictures of the new still, he said West Overton plans to return to its whiskey-making heritage this fall.

As happy hour came to a close and people headed into the perfect, clear night, music drifted up the hill from SummerSounds at St. Clair Park. Some headed to the concert, while others made plans for dinner downtown.

Seen: Eric andMichele Bononi, Barbara Ferrier, Holly Stone, Colen Brown, David andMarie Gallatin, Alexis Dillon, Amy McDivitt, Tay andBrenda Waltenbaugh, Robert Myers, Sherry Anderson, Kathy Wohlgemuth, John and Debbie Wohlin, Richard andEileen Stoner, Deborah Thackrah, Diane Mitinger andKathy Longacre.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
