The Maridon Museum ~


The Maridon opened on May 8th, 2004. It is the only museum in the Western Pennsylvania region with a specific focus on Asian Art and Culture coupled with German Meissen porcelain. The museum — both the objects and the buildings that house them — is the gift of Mary Hulton Phillips. Patricia Lowry, writing in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, pronounced the Maridon a "gleaming little gem of a museum."

YMCA ~ Tumble Inn

Photo: DeWayne Johnston
The former YMCA now CUBS Hall was the site of Friday night "Tumble Inn"  dances in the gym from the 50's to 60's +. Not sure when they ended. As a teenager, it was "Be there or be square."

Hi Everyone,
It is time to bring out the class reunion shoes and come celebrate with your classmates.
Circle the date of Friday, July 20, 2018 at Serventi's on Airport Road south of Butler off Route 8 South.
Who would have thought that we would be celebrating 65 year after graduation.

If you know a classmate who is not on our e-mail list, ask them to contact me or Cooky.

Details of this great event will be forthcoming soon.
