Three years after it opened, the Community and Recreation Center at Boyce Mayview Park has reached a milestone. The center topped the 10,000-member mark recently and of this week is closing in on 10,400. And they’re not just coming from Upper St. Clair. “Our fastest-growing population is nonresidents,” said Paul Besterman, township director of recreation and leisure services. The percentage of members who do not live in St. Clair is about 30 percent, up from 20 percent in 2011. Overall membership has exceeded projections, which helps the center substantially from a revenue standpoint. The financial status is such that a membership fee increase was not necessary this year. The center particularly has been crowded with the school year ending…

Nearly 100 people played golf in the middle of winter to raise money for recreational programming for kids with special needs.
Nearly 100 golfers enjoyed Pittsburgh's mild winter weather while playing in the 3rd Annual Chili Golf Classic on Saturday at Upper St. Clair's three-hole golf course. "It's the best and busiest," said Barb Joyce, owner of StonePepper's Grill and resident of Upper St. Clair. Temperatures were in the 30s, with periods of light rain and sunshine. It was a sharp contrast from last year's event, when snow boots were a necessary accessory. Many golfers said they enjoyed playing on the green fairways this year. "We didn't have as difficult of a time finding the ball," golfer Rich Williams said. "We can feel our hands this year," golfer Aaron Mansfield said. And the lack of snowfall made set-up much easier for organizers. "I like it with no snow…

But commissioners said the hike isn’t meant as a penalty to the 182 youth members of the facility. “We’d be bringing the youth…
