ROTARY CLUB HELPS SHEPHERDSTOWN GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS
Members of the Shepherdstown Rotary Club pitched in last Friday and Saturday (November 18 and 19) to erect and decorate the town's Christmas tree on the McMurran Hall lawn.
The Rotary Club has performed this service for the town each year since the town's "Christmas in Shepherdstown" celebration began more than 30 years ago.
This year's tree was again donated by Dan and Bryan Trees (formerly Sundback's) of Shepherdstown, which has generously provided the town with Christmas trees for many years.
This year's Christmas celebration will begin formally at McMurran Hall around 6:00 p.m. Friday, November 25 with a children's story reading, tree lighting, and Santa's arrival.
The town will hold its annual Christmas parade, which is organized by the Rotary Club, at 10:00 a.m. December 3.
