History is theme of fest

        DEERFIELD TWP. — Storytelling, a visit from Santa and melodies from the Kings Mills Elementary School choir will accent Saturday's second annual Holidays in Deerfield.

    What: Holidays in Deerfield
    When: 2-4 p.m. Saturday
    Where: Snyder House in Deerfield Township Cottell Park, at Irwin-Simpson and Snider roads.
        Attendees are welcome to join members of the History and Heritage Committee in making garlands out of popcorn and cranberries.

        “We feel like this is just our unique way to get together the citizens of the township and to show off the Snyder House,” said committee chairwoman Phyllis Hamilton. “It's a time to celebrate our township and its heritage and see how the garlands were made 200 years ago.”

        New this year will be a tent to accommodate the crowd and storytelling of Christmases past by senior citizens.

        Donations of canned food or money will be accepted. All proceeds will go to the Make a Wish Foundation.
