On Thursday January 26, 2017, at 3:45 pm the Westmoreland Bar Association will continue its long-standing tradition of presenting framed portraits of Past President Judges for hanging in the Westmoreland County Courthouse.
The WBA will conduct a ceremony to unveil the portraits of six Past President Judges of the Court of Common Pleas of Westmoreland County. The unveiling ceremony will include opening remarks from the WBA President John M. Noble and current President Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Westmoreland County, The Honorable Richard E. McCormick Jr.
Five of the Past President Judges: Gilfert M. Mihalich, Charles H. Loughran, Daniel J. Ackerman, John E. Blahovec, and Gary P.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, attendees will be invited to visit each of the courtrooms where these judges’ portraits will hang.
