FORT LIGONIER (PA):

“TASTE OF HISTORY”PARTY

     September 16, 2011, was a perfect autumn evening for Fort Ligonier’s first Taste of History celebration. Adding to the perfection was the delicious pizza baked in the beehive ovens by two volunteers.

     The blue sky provided a splendid backdrop to photography. I had received a phone call just before leaving for the event, so had left minus my camera. Fortunately, (more…)

THE 2011 LIGONIER (PA)

SUMMER CONCERT FINALE

     A generous Ligonier crowd spent Sunday evening sitting under blue skies decorated with white clouds trimmed with dark gray. A soft cool breeze blew over them, a breeze which held the promise of autumn.  Fortunately, the worst weather of Hurricane Irene didn’t hit Ligonier.

     The Somerset County Community Band performed the final concert of Ligonier’s summer Sunday evening concert series. The first half included many show tunes.

     During intermission something flew into my eye. I felt a stinging sensation.  The police offered to call an ambulance, but I wouldn’t do that to the emergency crew. All I needed was a mirror. Which was inside the closed Town Hall building. I sought the head of (more…)

COWABUNGA! WOWABUNGA!

     Sometimes a chance piece of information included in a print media article takes you back to the past. This happened while reading an article on Idlewild Park’s new multi-million dollar wave pool, the single-largest capital improvement project in the amusement park’s history.*

     The 182 foot-long pool, which delivers seven minutes of waves for every 10 minutes of calm water, is named (to read more click on www.carolyncholland.wordpress.com )
