Holiday season started with Parade of Lights held Nov. 24
A large crowd turned out on a lovely winter night to take in the annual Holiday Parade of Lights on Saturday, Nov. 24. The seventh annual event was sponsored by the Gettysburg Chamber of Commerce and Masons.
Although numbers were down in this year’s parade, enthusiasm was high! Participating in the parade were Gettysburg Medical Center Auxiliary, Potter County Library Bookmobile, Bank West of Onida, Lamb Motors, Chamber of Commerce/Snow Queens, Masonic Lodge, Gettysburg Volunteer Fire Department, and the Gettysburg EMTs.
Leading the parade was Santa and Mrs. Claus who were escorted by the Gettysburg Volunteer Fire Department in honor of the 103rd Firemen’s Ball. Parade Marshal was Beryl Clark.
Parade winners were selected by votes from those attending the the soup supper at the Masonic Lodge. First place honors with $100 in Chamber Cash went to the Bookmobile, with the Medical Center Auxiliary winning $50 for second place, and third prize of $25 went to Lamb Motors.
