Last weekend’s UltraParty was a big success, grossing $32,620. The Mt. Lebanon Partnership expects to net about $17,000, with most of it going to the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation, which sponsors several special-needs hockey teams.
Also last weekend, 53 pounds of batteries were recycled at the municipal building, and 19,307 lbs. of electronic equipment was recycled at the public works building. Curbside residential recycling totaled 180.53 tons in July.
The recreation department is hosting a new event called Star Party. This is a joint venture with the Amateur Astronomers Association where residents can stargaze at the golf course on September 21 at 8 p.m. Telescopes and assistance will be provided by the association.
The annual Wally Grant Junior Golf Tournament will be held at the golf course on August 13 and August 14. The tournament, which is open to Mt. Lebanon residents between the ages of 13 and 17, will consist of 18 holes of golf each day.
The rink is closed for maintenance from August 6 – 19.
