Friends of the Riverfront to host open house in Etna

Friends of the Riverfront will host an open house at its new offices at 12 Freeport Street.

Friends of the Riverfront will host an open house on Aug. 30 to showcase its new Etna headquarters.

The group which stewards the 25-mile Three Rivers Heritage Trail system moved to 12 Freeport Street in July from its former location along Preble Avenue in Pittsburgh’s Chateau neighborhood.

The open house will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Friends of the Riverfront volunteers will give tours of the new space and discuss initiatives for the coming year.

The move signifies a major step in the group’s effort to extend the Three Rivers Heritage trail through the Allegheny Valley, leaders said.

On June 21, a portion of the trail opened in Blawnox and a section is planned to pick up at the Etna Riverfront Park.

Etna Manager Mary Ellen Ramage said the group’s efforts align with the borough’s ongoing mission to build a park and trail along the Allegheny corridor to connect neighboring communities.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
