Lauri Ann West Community Center extends weekend hours

Extended weekend hours will begin on Sept. 22 at Lauri Ann West Community Center in O’Hara.

Extended weekend hours at Lauri Ann West Community Center will begin Sept. 22, to meet increased visitor demands during winter months.

Hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.

The center is at 1220 Powers Run Road in O’Hara and serves residents of the Fox Chapel Area School District.

Executive Director Keith Fenton said extended weekend hours are necessary when the cold weather hits and more people are seeking to exercise in the gym and fitness center. Weekday hours vary.

Fall programming also begins this month at the center, including a new class with Bobbie Cubbage called “Bigfoot Saturdays.” Children ages 5 to 12 can trek around the 11-acre campus looking for signs of Sasquatch and learning the lore of mythical creatures.

There will be an American Red Cross babysitting certification course offered for children ages 10 to 18 on Sept. 22, Oct. 20 or Nov. 17.

The 28,000-square-foot center also offers pickleball courts, a gymnasium and an after-school arts and enrichment program that serves 60 children each day.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
