The calendar still said winter but the weather cooperated with the Pittsburgh Council of Men’s theme of a spring party at the Comfort Inn in Harmarville.
On a warm March 11, more than 300 attended the party and enjoyed a great meal and great fellowship. Dawn Williams, Diamond Hinton and Shaquayla Bowers served as hostesses and directed guests to their tables. Also on this evening, PCM presented scholarships valued at $1,000 each to Dimitri Brown and Brianna Ware. Both are Westinghouse Academy students.
