Lighting of the WayLighting of the Way went smoothly on Sunday 11 December under the capable leadership of Betty George, Van Wyck's Postmistress. The work of putting up the poles was done well ahead of time, and the actual first Lighting took place in beautiful weather on Sunday afternoon. The crowd proceeded smoothly from church to church, ending with the traditional "Go Tell It On The Mountain" at White Oak A.M.E. Zion Church, then back to the Community Center for cider, coffee and cookies.

Feeding the Hungry
The Turkey Project
This time of year many supermarkets are offering very good prices on turkeys and hams. If you have the opportunity to purchase a turkey or ham and would like to donate it to the Greater New Hope Soup Kitchen, we will make it easy for you. Just let me know. We will make arrangements to pick the food up from you and transport it to 201 S. Ferguson St. in Lancaster, where the GNHSK staff will prepare and serve it to those who would otherwise go hungry.
Happy Holidays from us
As we celebrate the season we push aside our differences and worries and celebrate our similarities and joys. All the best of 2012 to each of you.Subscribe
