Hot off the press, Greencastle-Antrim Old Home Week badges flew off the table during Sidewalk Days Friday and Saturday in Greencastle. In addition to the badges, Tom Stine and Linda Reed (right) sold T-shirts and hats. Nancy Taylor and Connie Fennen (left) were pleased to add badges for the Aug. 3 to 10 celebration to their shopping bags during the downtown event.

The 38th Triennial Greencastle-Antrim Old Home Week celebration is just around the corner and the badges have arrived.

Badges cost $6. The purchase also includes an official program. While many events of Old Home Week have no admission fee, badges are required at several events and are a treasured memento of the triennial celebration. Badges are required for the Flower Show, Adult Dance, Town & Township Tour and the Pageant.

Badges are now on sale at the following locations:

Anna's Paperworks, Carl's Drug Store, Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce, Corning Federal Credit Union, Dodie's Design, Echo Pilot, F&M Trust (Greencastle branch), Food Lion (Greencastle store), Jerry's Barber Shop, Kline's Grocery Store, Mikie's Ice Cream, Orrstown Bank (Greencastle branch), Sunnyway Foods (Greencastle store), Susquehanna Bank (Greencastle branch) and True Value (Greencastle).

Badges will also be available for purchase at the required events and at the Old Home Week Headquarters on Center Square at Susquehanna Bank (old Conn Building). Headquarters will open at noon Friday, Aug. 2 and will be open each day of the triennial.

Old Home Week T-shirts ($15), hats ($15) and visors ($12) are available for purchase at the Chamber of Commerce office and will be available at Old Home Week Headquarters.
