Celebration continues the next two Fridays
Music filled the air and holiday revelers crowded around Center Square with the first night of Greencastle’s Heritage Christmas on Friday, Dec. 1.
Costumed characters, food and music by community groups and the popular horse and wagon rides were all in order.
In the old bank building on the northwest corner of the Square, Greencastle-Antrim Elementary School fifth-graders raised $725, including a $200 donation from the VFW, to help the Exchange Club provide Christmas presents for needy families. Bundle Up and Read featured new and gently used coats and books sold on a donation basis.
Next door, the room was crowded as Santa sat on a couch in one corner, waiting to hear the wishes of good girls and boys.
Luminaries lit the way to activities not far away, including the open house at the High Line Train Station and decorating gingerbread men, Christmas stories and cookies and hot chocolate at the Church of the Brethren.
The celebration continues the next two Fridays and more information is available from the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce at 717-597-4610 or visit www.greencastlepachamber.org
