It's a Susquehanna Christmas With Santa

Submitted by Nancy Narma

"You better not shout, you better not cry, you better not pout, and I'll tell you why!" Santa Claus is coming to the Borough of Susquehanna Depot during the weekend of December 17th, 18th and 19th. The jolly old Elf is looking forward to meeting all of his young friends and having a picture taken with them in "Santa's Susquehanna Headquarters," which is located at the end of Schneider's Market Plaza, next to Drinker Creek Beverage. Free photos will be taken on Friday, December 17th, from 6:00 to 8:00pm, on Saturday, December 18th, at 1:00pm and lastly, on Sunday, December 19th from 1:00 to 6:00pm.

Santa's visit is an integral part of what will be happening throughout the downtown area and Schneider's Market Plaza during this glorious Holiday Weekend. Saturday is jam-packed with goodies, such as free goodie bags and free books given away at 1:00pm in conjunction with "Photos with Santa". The Bluestone Creamery will be giving away free snow cones ("Snowballs"), also at 1:00pm. An Outdoor Christmas Celebration begins at 3:00pm with live music, pony rides for all of those "Wannabe Cowboys and Cowgirls", coffee and cocoa will be offered by the Erie and Main Coffee House, as well as tasty goodies by well-known baker, Rob Kelly.

The Susquehanna Area Little League will have a food tent for your munching pleasure and you can take something yummy home for late night hunger from the American Legion Post #86 Baked Goods Sale. A highlight to delight both the young and the young-at-heart will be James Pierce's Sleigh and Reindeer Display. This is sure to make everyone's hearts swell and bring Christmas carols to their lips and fond memories to mind.

At 5:30pm there will be the Annual Tree Lighting. Any group who would like to gather around the Christmas Tree and lead those assembled in traditional yuletide carols are more than welcome to do so. With the Main Street light poles decorated for this joyous season, as well as the lighted figures on the plaza entrance knoll and so many wonderful activities for young and older alike, there is no doubt that this weekend will be the start of a new tradition within our borough.

Much appreciation goes out to the SCDA Events Committee, Schneider's Market, Brooke Slocum, Ron Cieslak, Erie and Main Coffee House, Melissa Dubas, Pam Hennessey, Ken Scro, Bluestone Creamery, Jerry Herbert, Rob Kelly, the American Legion Post # 86, Elaine Aldrich, the Susquehanna Branch Library, the Susquehanna Area Little League, and so many "Behind the Scenes" individuals who graciously gave their time and generosity to make this weekend an event to treasure and look forward to, for many years to come.
