Community spirit continues to build in Falls and Exeter Township. In the past year, the village and township celebrated its first Falls Summer Celebration and was recently designated an official River Town by the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership. On Dec. 3, residents gathered again George Hock Memorial Park for the lighting of a Christmas tree and other holiday activities.
Local resident John Chamberlain was credited with donating a 16-foot tree for the occasion, which was decorated by members of the Falls Lions Club, Lake Winola Fire Company, Exeter Township officials and a number of other helpers. Tatum Robinson and Maci Arcure (above) had the honor of actually turning the lights on for the first time.
According to volunteer park manager Carol Bardzel, who organized the event with township supervisor Ann Marie Willis, participants sang carols and enjoyed hot chocolate and cookies. “A great time was had by all,” she stated.
