Dinner by candlelight is as authentic as it can be at Dinner for Eight in the tavern at Historic Hanna’s Town in Hempfield, since candles and a roaring fire are the only sources of light.

The annual dinner is the prize of a raffle offered by the Westmoreland County Historic Society, which administers the site.

This year’s winner for the Dec. 4 feast was Edie Hepler of Youngwood, who brought along Pam Ridinger, Sue Bosley, Linda Frye, Vicki Ciavarra, Nancy Johnston and Frannie Sellers (and yes, that turned out to be seven instead of eight).

Chef Mark Henry prepared the prime rib and roasted vegetables, served by Linda Austin and Barbara Ferrier . Joanna Moyar portrayed Mrs. Hanna, the hostess, while Jim Clayton tended bar.

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.
