‘Taste of Murrysville’ fashion show will highlight local businesses

To help highlight their “Love Your Local” slogan, members of the Murrysville Economic & Community Development Corporation will host a “Taste of Murrysville” fashion show on Aug. 23 at Franklin Regional Middle School.

MECDC Executive Director Jill Cooper said research has shown residents are more than willing to support local business.

“They are likely to purchase local products if they are of equal quality and similar price, and easy to find,” Cooper said. “Spending a little more for a product or service actually costs less in the long run because it helps save local jobs and maintain home values.”

The second annual show will open the MECDC’s “Love Your Local” weekend, featuring fashions and accessories, hair and makeup accessories and food, all from local boutiques, shops and restaurants.

Live music will be provided by the Franklin Regional Senior High School Band’s flute trio, and students from Donna’s Dance Studio will perform to kick off the show.

MECDC President Chuck Hergenroeder said the group’s partnership with Murrysville council is helping “to create business districts that offer unique personalities while providing exciting options for residents to live, work and play.”

Tickets are $20 and are available online at .

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.
